We have a new digital media professor, Clint Sleeper.  He will be teaching Programming for Artists in the fall (as well as Art & Electronic Media and Digital Foundations).

A little bit about Clint Sleeper:
As a media artist, performer, and maker, Clint Sleeper’s work<http://www.clintsleeper.com> humorously ponders an end to capitalism and seriously considers alternative possibilities for picking up the pieces and moving forward. This is a process of oscillating between old and new technologies as well as considering, in a clumsy fashion, popular or difficult philosophical positions.  Ultimately, this research and this artwork reiterates a sense of responsibility while upholding a brand of humor and a commitment to performing within those demands, however naive those performed roles may seem. The resulting books, videos, interactive sculptures, and performances are shown in galleries and festivals internationally.
Sleeper teaches classes in digital media that consider the political implications of new technologies and the creative potential of these systems, networks and objects. Students are asked to maintain a democratic space where they can, at once, create new work and consider the contributions of their classmates toward a better understanding of these technologies as they pertain to art and everyday life.

Seats are still available!

Programming for Artists
Meets: T/R 3:35-6:05pm
PreReqs: All Foundations
Co-Req: ART3651
Course Description: This course serves as an introduction to the possibilities that computational processes hold for visual artists and designers. Through a series of creative projects and exercises, students will acquire the skills necessary to create works that span the genres of digital and new media art. Students will learn the basics and intermediate knowledge of computer programming and discover how this awareness can advance computers beyond their role as simple tools and toward a true artistic medium. Readings and discussions will provide social, cultural and art historical contexts for creative practices that function at the intersection of art and technology. Projects may incorporate drawing, interactivity, text, virtual environments, time and motion, embedded computing, as well as other relevant forms.
