Who the course is for: This course is taught in English.
This course will give the student an overview of possible applications of basic code and simple electronics to art and design. 
No previous experience necessary. 
Delve into the past and future of interactive print to imagine how code and electronics might be woven increasingly seamlessly into the production of books, magazines and posters over the coming years. 
From motorised greetings cards and conductive inks to generative design and vertical plotters, join us to investigate the potential applications of interactive media to the field of printed narrative.
Exercises will focus on the context of printed matter, but the content can be applied more broadly if desired. 
The course content will be predominantly practical, hands on experience of working with the medium, but it will also involve lectures, demonstrations, short films, group work and one-on-one support. 
We will reuse found electronics and explore physical computing and code through the use of Makey Makey, Scratch, Arduino and Processing.
Assessment: Attendance, Projects.
Supervisor: Sam Rees.
Sam Rees is a generalist with a passion for DIY culture, manifesting itself through printed matter, installation, workshops and project management. He studied interactive arts, has been teaching interactive media courses at the IUA since 2014, was a co-founder of the Fjúk residency and is one of the organisers of the Reykjavik Zine and Print Fair. In recent years, his focus has been on the development of interactive dioramas - sequential narrative installations, eclectic assemblage exploring technological waste and our perception of robotics. This year he participated in residencies at Signal Culture in upstate New York and a rural fab lab in Portugal.
