Art and Art History: Art

ARTS 311 Web Art and New Media (1)

This course investigates the conceptual and technical potential of electronic media and how it might extend other areas of art making. Topics covered include how the machine might extend what the artist and historian already know and do, the strengths of the machine and how they may be applied to enhance the individual's approaches, and how an idea transcends technique. Projects/exercises are designed to aid in answering such questions by exploring various techniques and concepts pertinent to new technologies and the computer as an image driving tool. Image manipulation, the computer and time based issues, internet art and web publishing, as well as the necessary software needed for these investigations, will be presented.
