ArtART102 Interactive Arts

Physical computing examines bodily sound, movement, and other physical phenomena as an interface to a computer or microcomputer. Students investigate electronics and devices for use in interactive art-making to create sculptural or installation-based projects. Students receive hands-on experience working with sensors, motors, switches, gears, lights, circuits, and hardware store devices to create kinetic and interactive works of art, programming and interface design. Students are billed a materials fee.
