More About Creative Computation in Japan

The student’s individual experience abroad will serve as a living, dynamic data set, inspired by motifs such as the Japanese coastline, mountains, cityscapes, transportation systems, demographics, iconography, weather, etc. By combining recorded data (photography, video, audio, etc.), computer generated imagery, and algorithmic processes, students will develop a portfolio of interactive computational studies.
