After spring break, students in Art2018 will pitch an idea to the class for a project they would like to work on for the remainder of the semester. Each student will have about 10 minutes to present the pitch, with 5 minutes for questions / discussion. After all the presentations, students can break into teams or choose to work solo on their Interactive project. Projects may take the form of interactive installations, online games, or art experiences that use social media or mobile devices. Each pitch should include about 20 slides in a powerpoint / google slides presentation. Every slide should include VISUAL examples, such as screen grabs of inspiration or links to web-based interactive works.
