This course focused on learning to acquire, represent, and interact with data, and using those skills as a means of expressing a unique perspective on what might normally be considered too complicated or simply too boring. Rather than leaving it to statisticians and computer scientists, designers should take the initiative to apply their insight to the information around them.
    Projects were built with Processing, an open source programming language and environment for programming images, animation, and sound. Most students had no programming background prior to the course.
