Media In Motion - Summer Course

Media in Motion, an experimental project-based studio / lab explored the relationship between animation and physical objects and spaces, prompting the constant navigation back and forth between digital and physical modes of thinking and working. The cousre was taught by Isla Hansen, assistant professor (Art/ACCAD) and was open to both graduate and undergraduate students.

With animation as a lens, the concepts explored included the relationship between body and technology; scripted spaces and physical narratives; cause and effect in physical computing, robotics and animation; choreographed, sympathetic, or emergent movement; the translation between the digital and the physical, and more. The course recommended experience with at least one of the following: basic 3d modeling, animation, programming, physical computing, or physical construction.
