NPF 551 Interactivity and Networking

Students studying the new media, and innovative aspects of film and photography, have available to them as an aspect of their production practice the relatively new communications discipline of interactivity, most typically by means of high-speed computer-controlled cable and wireless systems. Interactive and/or networked media and media systems will be traced from their beginnings up to the current state of ultra-high-speed computing and optical signal processing. By means of selected historical and contemporary case studies the interrelated cultural phenomena of interactivity and networking will be studied as both first-order paradigms of communicative-behavioural change and as applied creative and expressive modalities for new-media makers.
