This semester’s edition of the course Electronic Media is engineered as a bootcamp for this, and the next generation-media-artist, who’s equipped with both a critical conceptual mind, as well as a technical repository to not only ‘create’ digital work, but also ‘reveal’ the perplexities and complexities of our contemporary technological society.
When concluding the course, the student will be able to create an artistic digital pipeline, from sensor-based data extraction to a multi-media digital environment, in which potential forces for novel sensibilities can be cultivated.
This course will re-cast aesthetics, through the classical concepts of engagement and agency, and in terms of more recent concepts of intra-action, and feed-forward dynamics in an upgraded mold of (digital) sensory experience.
The students will endure the course in collaboration on a project of their own imagination related to the course’s content, and finalize the course with a presentation in one of the two final weeks.
