The course aims to give you a theoretical and practical overview of creating images and animations using Generative Art techniques.

You will:
– be introduced to coding structures to create images, animated and interactive pieces.
– complete a portfolio of Generative Art pieces.
– research computational artists and write a small individual response to their artworks.

There will be two parts to the assessment with a further breakdown of marks within each part, as follows:

1. Academic (25%)
A written investigation (1,000 words) into an artist, their impact on digital art and your appreciation of their art and style.

2. Individual work: (75%)
You will develop a portfolio around 3 themes:
– A series of outputs animations that contrast chaos, randomness versus structure in grids. (25%)
– A generative design system that can be modified by user-input, such as touch, mouse-movement or UI elements (Sliders, checkboxes). (25%)
– An interactive piece that responds dynamically to changing of data, location time, motion. (25%)

This course will be delivered over 4 days on a blended format:
