The term ‘digital art’ has itself become an umbrella for a very broad range of artistic works and practices. This course will provide a survey of the multiple forms of digital and new media art, the basic characteristics of their aesthetic language, and their technological and art-historical evolution. One of the basic but crucial distinctions made here is that between art that uses digital technologies as a tool for the creation of more traditional art objects – such as a photograph, print, or sculpture – and digital-born, computable art that is created, stored, and distributed via digital technologies and employs their features as its very own medium, such as interactive installation, software or internet art, virtual reality, and so on. The latter is commonly understood as ‘new media art’.

The subject will give you insight into the field of 2D and 3D Modeling. By combining technical and art education and teaching, and by using Photoshop and Maya toolsets – the dominant industry standard programs, this course will provide students with the basic skills needed for the gaming industry, the field of 3D animation, the entertainment industry, etc. This course focuses on the modelling and texturing skills required to build simple environments. Students begin by modelling simple objects. After practicing these techniques they move on to design and build an environment.
