This course isn’t running at the moment, but it’ll run again in Semester 2 2019. Still, feel free to look around, and if it looks like the sort of thing you’d be in to then make sure you talk to your program convenor to figure out how to fit it into your program in S2 2019 😊

Art & Interaction in New Media


Semester 2 2018

In this course you’ll learn to tell stories through interactive code art. It’s not just an art course, and it’s not just a code course: you’ll need to use both halves of your brain, and (I hope) you’ll have a lot of fun in the process. No previous coding or artistic experience is required: the COMP1720 team will teach you everything from the ground up.

In this course you’re an artist, and your canvas is the web browser with javascript and the p5 library. So when you want to share the art you make (and I really think you will) then you can just tweet out a link.

This site contains all the course content: the people, policies, lecture slides, lab content, and the deliverables (assignments, etc.) and other resources.

If you’ve got questions, there’s a course FAQ which might have the answers you’re looking for.
