Graduate students in the new Interactive Media Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Miami School of Communication presented their first end-of-semester public show December 18 at The LAB Miami in Wynwood. Friends, family, guests from Miami’s tech community and journalists attended the show, which featured a set of interactive prototypes built in Physical Computing and Programming for Designers courses.
The projects experiment with interactions between physical and digital worlds including games, musical instruments, interactive art and visualization. The prototypes were built using Processing, a programming language particularly good for vizualising information and for data interaction, and Arduino, an open-source platform based on a single-board microcontroller to control a host of DIY projects.
