ART3613C Digital Multimedia 3.0 sh (May be repeated twice for credit.) Prerequisite: Art2600C

Issues and applications of digital technology and critical thinking in art. Conceptual utilization of both theoretical thinking and contemporary digital studio art practice, with possible emphasis on video art, video streaming technology, emerging technology, installation, programming and / or robotics to be determined by instructor. Students work both individually and collaborate on projects that can involve video, space, time, objects, film, robotics, programming, or any other appropriate media. Material and Supply Fee will be assessed.

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, Algorithmic Art, Robotic Art, Interactive Art, etc.

The class will focus multiple computer aided design (CAD) environments as well as digital fabrication technologies. The lessons will use solid and surface modeling software in order to create 3D designs and experience in using additive and subtractive fabrication technologies to build physical representations of the CAD models.

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.
