DXARTS 471 is the first part of a unique three-quarter studio sequence exploring mechatronic art systems. The sequence is aimed at artists who want to expand their practice to include mechanics, electronics, software, advanced fabrication methods and real-time audio/video processing. Past student projects have included interactive sensor-driven video installations, self-sustaining biorobotic devices and mobile telematic systems.
Students are not assumed to have any prior technical experience and will be given comprehensive instruction in the form of lectures, laboratory sessions, workshops and critiques. The class is taught at DXARTS� Fremont warehouse facility, equipped with state of the art fabrication shops that include milling machines, plasma cutters, and PCB routers.
Acceptance into the sequence is highly competitive; only 10 places are available each year. Application forms are online at http://www.washington.edu/dxarts/academics.php Please address any questions to the instructor: firstname.lastname@example.org
