IAHIS 4620 Hyperculture: Art & Technology

This course focuses on the changes that have occurred in how we think about and respond to new technological transformations, such as digital computer technology and Internet communications. We consider the ways in which artists have appropriated these technologies to create new art forms, e.g. cyberpunk and science fiction, in visual and literary art forms. The goal of the course is to inform student understanding of these new art forms and to encourage creative experimentation.
