Fall 2019 Electives
The first goal of the course is to nurture foundations in programmatic thinking.
The second goal of the class is to destroy computation.
Come to question everything in the course. Wonder if code is the right notation / instrument for composing computer media. Recognize a drastic literacy asymmetry in the world. See the hazards of “UI/UX” culture, hazards of how civilization currently regards computation. Consider how client-server relates to governance & truth, and how utopian rhetorics of decentralization could summon new kinds of problems for society. Understand machine-learning as painting. What are new software attitudes? How do we incubate new voices in computation?
No background with code required. Open to majors, non-majors, graduate students. Fine artists strongly encouraged.
Workshops are 1 credit and last 4 weeks. Mix and match.
