Additional Details:

Part one of a two-quarter studio sequence exploring the world of physical computing, creative coding and digital fabrication for art and design projects. Provides hands-on prototyping with digital/analog electronics, experimenting with interface design and programming with Arduino, and Processing for the creation and control of interactive objects. The students will engage with the use of smart materials and learn to create their own sensors and actuators through digital crafting tools (such as laser cutters, cnc routers and 3d printers), as well as learn to conceptualize and fabricate responsive environments. Emphasis will be made in the use of mechanics and real-time interaction for multimedia installations and performances that explore surrounding space, movement and the role of the viewer/user in the creation of immersive experiences in the physical world.
