In Justin Bakse’s Computational Form class, students get to combine art and computer programming to create unique works that range from animations to posters. Utilizing manipulation along with creation, they build on existing programming skills using a variety of programming languages, tools, and techniques. Each week, a new topic is introduced in class. Students then create sketches related to that topic throughout the week, sharing their work on the class blog. Justin encourages students to respond to each other’s work with new work by having them post their source files online. You can view their work on their classTumblr.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
