Through lectures and dialogue, readings and lots of hands-on making, we will examine the rhetorical, formal, and visual underpinnings of digital art. Assignments and in class explorations encourage students to investigate formal design aesthetics and the nuances of effective visual communication; as well as to develop a critical analysis of the historical and cultural context of design and the role of the digital media artist in society.
