Computer als Medium (Medienästhetik)

Michael Huber
Fine Arts and Media Art, Media Theory
2018W, Seminar (SE), 2.0 semester hours, course number S40320

Description

Based on historical-sociological considerations (cybernetics, wheat tree & others), the cornerstones of digital culture are illuminated (Hofstadter, Penrose, Rheingold & others). In addition to strictly formal systems (Mandelbrot & others), social effects are of particular interest ("net culture", "social media", Postman & others).
Specific "applied" topics such as systemic ornamentation, typography, design, generic art, spam & "computer poetry", digitisation etc. round off the complex.
