Four areas will be covered in this course: programming, networks, operating systems, circuits and devices. Taught with artistic work in mind, these core areas are vital in understanding how essential technical knowledge can serve how the production, dissemination, and conceptualization of work can be approached with working skill sets in areas that ground many practices in photographic and media art. Topics will be presented to demonstrate the usefulness and benefits of taking control of systems. Prerequisite: MFA in photography and digital imaging students only.
