PLEIN AIRE PROGRAMMING


Instructor: Siebren Versteeg

ART TECH • 3 credit hours

With the ever-increasing ubiquity and miniaturization of digital devices comes the opportunity to reproach traditional means of animation and programming practices. Untethered from the Internet’s distractions as well as the troglodytian catacombs of computer labs, this class takes studied observation of the natural phenomena in and around Ox-Bow’s grounds as its primary source of inspiration and context. Students are introduced to a variety of animation techniques and practices that forego over-rendered articulation in favor of gestural motion studies and are encouraged to produce digital interventions in and around campus throughout the course of the class. A laptop (PC or Mac) will be required; projector encouraged.
