In this course, students will look at two open-source platforms for creative coding (Processing and Arduino) and explore their use in creating interactive and generative works of art.  Using Processing, students will develop techniques for creating algorithmic animations, visualizing data, networking, and manipulating live video.  Students will use the Arduino microcontroller platform to connect digital work to the real world, using sensors to gather and interpret information.  Students will be introduced to basic programming concepts and develop simple electronic circuits.  Reading and seminar will provide a conceptual basis for our technical work.  No prior experience is required.
