ART 1080 - FYS: iMe: Reinventing Yourself in the Digital Age

Credit(s): 3

Have you ever uploaded a photo to Facebook, viewed cats from around the world on YouTube or conquered a video game with online teammates? Digital technology is making it easier than ever to express yourself and communicate on a global scale. With the advent of virtual realities like Second Life, you can reach beyond globalism and enter the realm of total imagination. With all of these exciting changes, how do you navigate this new world? In this seminar, we will explore technology’s role in our lives. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we will examine science, art and literature’s take on topics including Web 2.0, cybernetics and virtual reality. We will look at how these topics have influenced robotics, viral videos and most important, you.
