Computer als Medium (Medienästhetik)

Michael Huber
Fine Arts and Media Art, Media Theory
2020W, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S02742

Description

Based on historical-sociological considerations
(Cybernetics, Weizenbaum e.a.), cornerstones of digital culture are illuminated (Hofstadter, Penrose, Rheingold e.a.).
In addition to the consideration of strictly formal systems (Mandelbrot e.a.), the interest is primarily focused on the social effects of technology ("net culture", "social media", Postman e.a.).
Here the dominant theme "AI and creativity" is also to be found.
Specific "applied" topics such as systemic ornamentation, typography, design, "generic art", spam & "computer poetry" etc. complete the complex.
