Description

This class from 1998 was one of the first classes taught under the auspices of the Aesthetics and Computation Group at the MIT Media Lab, and deals with the very early stages of interactive computer graphics and their combination with the visual arts. A full set of assignments and solutions can be seen in the assignments section, and the final work of the class is in the projects section.The aim of the students from the Numeric Photography class at the MIT Media Laboratory was to present an exhibition of digital artworks which blend photography and computation, in the context of scene capture, image play, and interaction. Equipped with low end digital cameras, students created weekly software projects to explore aesthetic issues in signal processing and interaction design. The results are more than a hundred Java applets, many of which are interactive, that suggest new avenues for image play on the computer. These weekly exercises led to the final product, an exhibition of the student work.
