MAT 265 Open Projects in Optical/Motion-Computational Processes

George Legrady

Elings Hall, lab 2611, CNSI Building 2nd floor - Tues-Thurs 1-2:50pm

Course Format

MAT265 is a studio production course to allow students to concentrate on a project of their own interest within the topic of computation and visualization. The goals of the course are to provide opportunities for creative experimentation, potentially culminating with a project, or proposal, or research development, or dissertation work.

The workload consists of regular individual meetings and occasional group presentations to share with the class the evolution of each students's work. Milestones include:

1) identifying a topic of interest
2) proceed to define the schedule to realize the project by the end of the 10-week course
3) Document the 10 week work to be posted at this website.

Course Focus Students produce individual research and experimentation to review weekly. Some topics covered:
. Experimental studio optical-computation-machine research
. Machine-learning and photography
. Aesthetics driven computational studio practice
. Differentiations between practice and research, artistic and scientific methodologies
