This seminar-studio course introduced the concepts & specifics of physically interactive media environments, with an emphasis on how they relate to traditional film, television, theater, and performance art practice. Technologies addressed included sensors, computer-controlled video and sound, databases, networks, and the software used to interconnect them.

More recent versions of the course focused on production, though still including theory, discussion, and experimentation. Readings included selections from Lev Manovich's Language of New Media, Randall Packer and Ken Jordan's Multimedia: From Wagner to Virtual Reality, and Stephen Wilson's Information Arts. Screenings included selected works from Tarkovsky, Marker, Vertov, Antonioni, Waliczky, and others.
