ART 3705 - Art in the Age of Networks

Spring. 4 credits.

Prerequisites: ART 2701 , or permission of instructor.


This project-centered studio course is designed to introduce the web as a medium for critical, aesthetic, and public art practice. Recent digital practices such as net art, generative art, telematic art, interactive environments, and network performance have led artists to see the web and related technologies as a new space for understanding art and re-thinking the role of the artist in society. By becoming familiar with these practices, and through independent research and project production, this course will ask students to challenge the notion of object-based art and approach art as an interventionist activity that creates sites of critical overlap between art, technology, and society.
