Art, Code and Diversity in NYC

Spring 2020

Taught By: Livia Foldes

Section: A

CRN: 7986

Credits: 1

Processing is a creative coding toolkit for design and visual arts that has been helping students from all kinds of backgrounds learn to code since 2001. Today the Processing community is a broad, diverse group of tens of thousands of activists, artists, designers, teachers and students from around the world dedicated to spreading computer literacy and learning through making. This February 8th, Eugene Lang will host the New York gathering of Processing Community Day, a one-day conference of workshops, talks and discussions celebrating art, code and diversity. Students in this one-credit class will prepare for the conference by learning the basics of Processing and its JavaScript version P5.js, as well as researching presenters and planning an itinerary. They will then attend the full one-day conference, taking workshops to start new projects and participating in group discussions. The students will then continue the work started in the conference by completing either a code-based project initiated in one of the workshops or a reflection essay on the role of computation in society stemming from one of the facilitated discussions. No previous coding experience required, students should bring their own laptops to this class.
