MMDI 250 - Survey of Multimedia

3 credits
Examines the chronological evolution of digital technology and its inevitable application by the aesthetic community. Beginning with the development of digital technology in the mid-1940s, the course discusses the convergence of the scientific, military, and political environments that spawned the employment of digital technology, including the path that led to the digital dominance over analog. Includes the enhancement, exploitation, and embracing of digital technology by the corporate and aesthetic communities, the invention of the personal computer and its ancillary products, and the application of digital technologies in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, manufacturing, cognitive psychology, and in particular, the arts. Pioneers in all fields are identified and examined.
