COSC 2 Programming for Interactive Audio-Visual Arts

This course presents topics related to interactive visual art generated on a computer. Although it briefly covers computer-generated media art, the course focuses on the programming skills required for creating interactive works. Rather than using commercial software, students write their own programs, using the Processing language, to create compositions with which users can interact. The course introduces fundamental concepts of how to represent and manipulate color, two-dimensional shapes, images, motion, and video. Coursework includes short programming assignments to practice the concepts introduced during lectures and projects to explore visual compositions. The course assumes no prior knowledge of programming. This course is not open to students who have passed COSC 1 or ENGS 20 or who have received credit for one of these courses via the Advanced Placement exam or the local placement exam.

This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
