This course will introduce design and coding in the context of New Media Arts and Interaction. Topics covered may include the nature of New Media Art, Interaction with New Media Art, program organisation, control structures, graphics and audio.
In terms of the modern art world, the computer is not just another medium, it is a whole other range of media. Students will design and experiment to construct interactive works of New Media Art. They will learn how to conceptualise, brainstorm, plan and realise an original interactive work of New Media Art.
The techniques used by computer professionals to visualise and present data are heavily influenced by techniques invented by artists and vice versa. Students will gain an appreciation of good visual and interactive design.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
After successful completion of COMP6720, students should be able to:
- Design, construct and debug small to medium-sized computer programs in a high-level programming language for New Media art.
- Have an appreciation of the artistic process in computer-based New Media.
- Be able to conceptualise, plan and execute an original and creative work of New Media art.
- To have an appreciation of visual and physical interaction at a New Media interface.
