The course creates an informational map for those interested in the subject to guide themselves and seek further information and training in the various areas that make up the field of creative technology. It is a theoretical course to share vocabulary, references, and dialogues about the encounter between art, design, technology, and science.
During our "Introduction to Creative Technologies" journey, Lina will cover a bit about this large interdisciplinary field that unites design, art, technology, and science. The map features five major areas, and we will talk about each of them:
First, Pre-machines will be covered, about automata and optical illusion. Next, is Spatial Augmented reality, where we will talk about virtual and augmented reality and video mapping. Next, Creative Coding, the use of code as artificial intelligence to generate unusual experiences in the arts, followed by Physical Computing and everything that involves electronics and digital fabrication. Finally, Biodesign and the possibilities of creating biological machines.
The project at the end of the course will be to create a shareable library with references in the most diverse areas presented during the course.
No previous knowledge or specific program or tool is required. Any person interested in the subject can take the course. No specific program or tool is required.
