About Digital Art
The course offers a wide survey on the different types of new media art (computer art, interactive installations, net art, software art, game art, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality), through an historical overview that traces the evolution of the relationship between art and technology from the 1950’s to the present. Particular attention will be dedicated to the topic of interaction aesthetics in the context of contemporary art, through the analysis of a selection of relevant case studies and theoretical essays on the subject. A few lessons will be dedicated to the task of designing multimedia environments and exhibitions through a practical exercise and one lesson will introduce the use of the software Processing.
