General Description
Computer Art is a second level studio projects course exploring the use of computer technologies for augmenting and expanding creative thought in making visual art. Students experiment with photo-manipulation, paint, object-based, and page-layout software, as well as establish practical knowledge of input and output techniques. Innovation and experimentation are highly encouraged. Students will expand their understanding of contemporary digital arts practice through readings, discussions, lectures, and critiques.

We will explore computer imaging in terms of giving visual form to ideas about perception, identity, memory, movement, the environment, biotechnology and personal expression in private and public settings. In all projects you are encouraged to use sound if you feel it is appropriate.
