Electronics and Interactivity II
A continuation of FID-3611, Electronics and Interactivity I, in this course students will design their own projects with custom electronic circuitry and custom software. Students will use relatively simple electronic circuits and basic computer programming to develop rich and meaningful interactive sculpture, installation and audio/video works. How to program Arduino microcontrollers to respond to various kinds of sensors will be explored, and students will work with Cycling ‘74 Max/MSP/Jitter to control and respond to digital video, audio and other types of data. Prerequisite: FID-3611, Electronics and Interactivity I, or equivalent experience building circuits, programming microcontrollers (e.g., PIC, Javelin, BASIC Stamp 2) and some knowledge of Max/MSP/Jitter. Note: Midyear entry with instructors’ permission.
