Bio

Becky has worked across a spectrum of educational settings: murals workshops with New York graffiti artists; teaching hardware/software courses; to MFA and BFA students; offering soft circuitry workshops in New York City public schools; and game design workshops for adolescents with special needs. She is currently researching how computational-thinking and systems-thinking, married with technology-based art forms, can serve as a platform for integrated curriculum. Becky explores pathways of data and implications of perception in pedagogy, tactility, and audio/visual experiences. Conceptual domains of her art work encompass subcultures, drawing machines, and feedback loops. The mediums include hardware/software setups, drawings, and soft circuitry.

My Courses

ENT4900/4901-F15 Internships

ENT4900/4901-F15 Internships

For ENT Majors: work experience at a professional scenery fabrication shop, rental/supply house, off- Broadway theater, or any related industry organization approved by the adviser. For Emerging Media Tech Majors, work experience at a design firm, media electronics firm, media software firm, robotics firm, entertainment or media production firm, or any related industry organization approved by the adviser. This will serve to bridge the student’s academic and commercial careers by giving the him/her professional work experience and industry contacts before the end of the senior year. Each student will keep a log/journal to be shared in group seminars. Supervision will be by faculty and a manager at the internship site. Prerequisite: ENT 4410 or ENT 4450 or ENT 4470 or ENT 4480 or Pre- or corequisite: MTEC 3800

Problem Solving with Computer Programming

Problem Solving with Computer Programming

Creating computer applications, instead of just using them, will give you a deeper understanding of the essential possibilities of computation. Through weekly problems, students will learn the fundamentals of programming the computer (variables, conditionals, iteration, functions, and objects). These tools are the basic building blocks of programming needed to create cutting-edge graphics applications including interactive art, live video processing, and data visualization. The Java-based ‘Processing’ programming environment is the primary vehicle for the class. The end of the semester is spent developing an idea for a final project and implementing it using computer programming.

IMT1101 Emerging Media Foundations SP2015

IMT1101 Emerging Media Foundations SP2015

An introduction to interactive multimedia technology with a focus on interdisciplinary, project based, cooperative learning. Attendees will be immersed in the protocols and processes of the design process: ideation, presentation, dissemination, prototyping, and production. Participants will explore basic theoretical and applied concepts of audio, visual, tactile and interaction design through creative group projects, visiting professionals, and online documentation of work produced. This course provides a foundational structure necessary for working in the the highly interdisciplinary media technology field. This course lays the foundation for work and research practices that the will be expected to follow in the rest of the academic career and in the workplace.
