Description of Topics Covered: Digital Fabrication, Computational 3D Modeling, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Machining (CAM), Computer Numerical Control (CNC), 3D Printing, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Art and Technology, New Media

This semester's course is an experimental section which includes a guest visiting artist, Elizabeth Demaray. The project for the semester will be focused on looking at a biological process called transpiration. Major topics intersections of art and science, contemporary art/sci practitioners, critical thinking about design as the nexus of art and design, and issues in the disciplines of Art & Technology and New Media.

Students will be divided into teams; the course will be organized in three phases: Research, Design, and Construction. Each team will produce a finished piece to be displayed during the spring semester departmental pop-up show.

The course will include lessons in three dimensional design and sculptural process in Computer Aided Design and Digital Fabrication. The coursework facilitates an understanding of the terminologies, techniques, and materials in the field. This course is a Visual Art course; the course will approach media from a fine art perspective. The course emphasizes creative, critical thinking as well as methodologies and computational literacy.
