  • Overview

    This subject encourages critical engagement with code as a form of reading and writing, the software industries and algorithmic data-driven infrastructural processes. Contemporary code formations are positioned in historical and theoretical contexts, and reflexively explored as languages through which humans and machines communicate with each other. Students form a personal perspective on code as a digital literacy that evolves throughout their professional lives as digital and social media practitioners, and articulate this perspective in creative digital media form.
