Over the course of the semester my ides about what constitutes art has been broadened. Prior to this class when discussing my major, the description of my work was very simple. Now i can honestly give the most unsatisfying answer to the question “what kind of art do you do?”, the answer being a little bit of everything. I can paint with robots and a computer, sculpt in plaster and plastic using a 3D printer, and i can compose and infinitely large graphic. with the exposure of the assignments there is very little i can not do in the advancing world of art.
in the First assignment, for me, was about the conceptualization of design and interaction.
The second was about broadening my ideas about the presentation and the visibility of art.
The second half of the class became less conceptualization and became more about the ways technology has changed and how its becoming more practical to apply to the arts, and how to manipulate those new techs. so that i can have a basic understanding of how they work.
