ART 3490 - Intermediate Making


Goals: This course builds upon the fundamental skills learned in DMA 1490. Students will develop intermediate level creative projects through an iterative process of research, prototyping, feedback, and problem solving to expand their experience with digital fabrication equipment, digital and analog electronics, and microcontroller programming. These tools and techniques will be used to create 3D and 4D artworks, such as kinetic sculpture and interactive installation art.

Content: Students will gain intermediate electronics, programming, and design skills through breadboarding and soldering electronic circuits, interfacing sensors and actuators with microcontrollers, building multimedia software applications, and using digital fabrication tools to manufacture physical interfaces for their projects. Students will learn intermediate level production and research methods necessary for developing novel and compelling new media artworks. Students will undergo a regular process of peer feedback and critique to develop and improve their artwork. Students will also provide feedback, help, and mentorship to students taking 1490. Students will occasionally work collaboratively with students in other classes, such as studio arts/sculpture.

Prerequisite: ART 1490, grade of C- or better
