CSCI 1950C - Advanced Programming for Digital Art & Literature
This workshop will explore advanced tools and techniques for the creation of innovative and expressive works of digital art. Lectures will address the application of best practices from the software design community to the context of artistic practice. In the first section of the course, students will exercise their aesthetic, conceptual, and technical skills on a set of 'mini-projects' exploring the analysis, generation and presentation of computationally-augmented literary texts. Assignments will include web-text mining, feature extraction, grammars, generative algorithms, and statistical techniques. During the second half of the course, students will focus on a larger work of their own design, participating in regular critiques throughout the development cycle. Though assignments will focus on digital literature, a wide range of artistic media will be explored, including sound, image, video, 3D and installation. Collaboration is encouraged. Instructor permission required. Enrollment limited to 18.
