Creative Coding

Studies on how contemporary technologies inspire novel forms of creative practice.

Creative Coding is a new interdisciplinary course co-founded with Dr. Angus Forbes between the Department Computer Science and the School of Design (CS+DES), which investigates how contemporary technologies can inspire novel forms of creative practice. It introduces software programming and creative coding techniques within the context of the digital media design. Students work in multidisciplinary teams (CS+DES) developing virtual reality projects for the CAVE2 and other VR platforms, interactive data visualizations and other projects combining computational skills with creative design. They investigate the challenges and opportunities that emerge when using new technologies for expressive purposes.
