ART 208 KHJ - Digital Art and Sustainability

Campus: Urbana-Champaign

Description:

The course will explore the social and environmental impacts of art-making practices that rely heavily on computer and Internet technologies. We will examine the wide range of artistic practices that employ computer and internet technologies and will introduce students to artists and artistic practices that criticize computer and Internet technologies and their impacts. Students will research the source of materials and labor used to manufacture computer and Internet related technologies, the facilities that support the infrastructure of the Internet and the social, political and economic systems that impact end of life management of electronic waste. From this base of research, students will employ digital or Internet technologies to produce a final project that explores how they understand the impact of their use of these technologies in scholarly pursuits including research, writing and making art.
