Course Description: Electronics is fun, useful, and fun. Electronics for Artists covers both the theory and primarily techniques of working with electronics. Students will be exposed to basic tools and components for building robust, practical circuitry into their art works. No attempt will be made to provide encyclopedic coverage of electronics due to the sprawling nature of the topic — rather students will be encouraged to become comfortable with experimentation and hands on hacking.
Course Prerequisites: Open
Textbook: If you wish to purchase a textbook, we recommend Practical Electronics for Inventors, by Paul Schertz. In addition, we have an extensive collection of electronics and robotics textbooks which we will bring to class for you to check out.
Lab: Each meeting will consist of a lecture and lab. During lab we will build circuits based on the concepts discussed in the lecture.
