Fagligt indhold:Students enrolled in this course will learn about digital aesthetics through their own creative practice. That is, they will be asked to design their own digital art and experiences in order to reach an understanding of the concepts related to digital media.

Our pedagogic approach will be based on reflecting, crafting and making. Students will actively use digital technologies to produce different kinds of experiences. The investigations will be complemented with literature that will help students to contextualize and theorize the outcomes.

We will investigate contexts of artistic exploration and design strategies specific to the digital media, as well as discuss the mutual impact of technological innovation and artistic exploration.

What is an aesthetic approach and how is it useful to understand digital media? How do we create digital experiences? This course will give you knowledge on how to analyze and understand aesthetic parameters in digital products, installations and experiences, concerning form and appearance. Various aesthetic strategies in a wide array of digital media are treated and analyzed.

Theoretically the course will build on an interdisciplinary context and closely correlate critical analysis and creative practice.
