Interactive Media Class

I’ve been spending most of my waking hours teaching, recently, which is why you haven’t seen any upcoming shows on this site, or much more on the blog. Usually, I like to pull a Clark Kent and keep my day-job and secret pixelist identity separate, but just this one single time I’ll allow my worlds to collide and tell you briefly about the Interactive Media class I taught last term at Coventry University in the UK.

Coventry Interactive Media Final Show 2007

For the ten-week-long class (or “module,” as they’re called) the students had to learn [tag]max/msp/jitter[/tag] and create their own interactive installation for others to use. The results were brilliant, as you can see. Many of the groups got into using the Nintendo [tag]wiimote[/tag]. Check out the video on CovMedia and see for yourself.
