Computational Thinking Meets Design Thinking: Technology and Arts Collaboration
Presented by Professor Erik Brunvand

"There seems to be an explosion of interest in exploring arts and technology connections: new media, digital media, kinetic art, new frontiers, emergent media, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary are only some of the terms used to describe this fusion of disciplines. This emerging arena for collaboration brings up a number of questions. Are fine arts and technology compatible partners? Do these disciplines support each other or flinch when they are combined like oil and water? Do collaborative efforts provide interesting insights and opportunities for students? For practitioners? In this talk I will start with some thoughts on the nature of combining arts and technology, and show some historical and contemporary examples."
