DESGN-633

This studio explores objects and interactions within our ecosystem, and the role they play to both reflect and mediate cultural ideals. Students will critically examine contemporary environmental issues to design and create a physical embodiment as response. As part of the design process, we will use rapid visualization strategies, develop iterative mock-ups, and build sensing and reactive objects. The prototypes we create will utilize open-source and easily-accessible technology, and students will learn hands-on skills to explore and challenge current environmental politics.
