Taught By: Jessie Contour

Section: A

CRN: 3062

Credits: 3

Building Worlds combines practical instruction in code, 3D modeling / animation, and iterative engineering processes -- with theoretical inquiry into the politics of code and virtual embodiment. How do we represent 3D space in a computer? How do we represent a mind in a computer? How do we even feasibly explore and investigate these problems? This class focuses on process, workflow, and problem-solving skills that are valuable for any code language / development environment, in any interactive digital context.

Open to: Masters degree in Design & Technology majors only; others by permission of program.
