Teknologi og dynamiske kunst

2018/2019

Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

g: Group and project work Module contents: The basis of this module is human perception of movements and transitions, both physical and emotional. Students will work with principles of creation for time-based artifacts, and the experience of artifacts expressing temporal, spatial, and affective transitions. A variety of audio/visual technologies and engineered solutions will be tested and applied in the creation of products, artifacts and installations in the project unit, including mechanical and electronic alternatives of creating and controlling movement, position in space and autonomous motion. During the semester, students work theoretically and experimentally with projects that challenge their creative and technologies skills and produce artistic effects focused on performative interaction between humans and machines.

In connection with the module, courses may be offered within the following areas:

  • Artistic and Academic Methodology III (Affective Design)
  • Creative Sensor Networks
  • Digital Representation II (Rapid Prototyping)
  • Programming II

The objective of module 8: Dynamic Art and Technology is to introduce students to basic problem areas and solutions regarding the creation of products, artifacts, performances and installations, which results in the expression of transitions both physically and emotionally.

Læringsmål

Viden
