Computational Form

Spring 2021

Taught By: Justin Bakse

Section: A

CRN: 5789

Credits: 3

Make things that make things! Computer programming is a powerful tool for creating and manipulating form. It has long been used by artists, designers, and composers to explore new aesthetics. In this class, students will continue this tradition of experimentation by creating images, animation, video, sound, and 3D forms with rules, algorithms, and code. This class emphasizes formal exploration through daily “sketching”. This class will build on existing programming skills by introducing a variety of techniques, programming languages, and tools related to procedural generation. Topics will include: creating raster and vector images with Javascript and p5.js, synthesizing audio in Javascript, and using OpenSCAD to create models for 3D printing. For more information see compform.net.

Open to: Students in MFA Design & Technology, MS Data Visualization, MPS Communication Design, BFA Design & Technology and BFA Communication Design programs.
