Painters have brushes, sculptors have chisels. As a designer working with interactivity, what do you have? This intermediate studio class will focus on building up your toolkit with useful software, techniques, and modules. We will then use these tools to rapidly develop the kinds of applications you want to create. Working individually, you will take pieces of code, reassemble them, and “glue” them together for new work. Through brief lectures, guided tutorials, and in-class lab sessions, you will achieve the skills needed to spend less time struggling with code and more time working through your own concepts and projects. Some knowledge of code is helpful, though no specific language is required: the class will be taught with Python and Processing, with an eye toward making code work conceptually in any language.
