This course invites students at every level of photographic experience (both traditional lens-based media and digital techniques) to a hands-on exploratorium. We will create and develop new ways of seeing (as well as re-purposing existing ways of seeing) through the emerging framework of computational photography, pulling from optics, computer vision, programming, and their largely unexplored creative potentials. An introduction to general theories of computation and their practical application will be examined through individual and collaborative projects throughout the term in a hands-on combination of science, technology, and artistic production. Students will be expected to actively engage the theory and practice of creating their own modes of expression by constructing camera/capture devices in an open experimental context, exploring concepts ranging from fractals to light fields. Students with a desire to create works that cannot be realized through traditional means are encouraged to challenge existing modes of photographic expression.
Open to: Bachelors degree in Photography majors; others by permission of Photography program. Pre-requisite(s): None
