Short Description:

In our days Physical Computing is a widely-evolving method in design, representation, and arts. It invade through their simplicity in private and public life of humans. The course introduces interaction and parameterization as a key object in Interaction Design, systems and services. Interactive artefacts serve everyday life by rewriting the symbiotic relationships of citizens with the private space (local scale), the urban an natural environment (urban scale) as well as with the global digital intangible city (global scale).

Students will be asked to implement objects, games, digital applications focusing on the relationship between citizens, cities and the natural environment. Open design and fabrication technologies that are available in our days are the mediums for the implementation of the students’ projects.


Objectives - Learning Outcomes:

Aim of this course is to explore technologies and whether they can be used to read, record, evaluate and reconstitute people's relationships with material culture in urban and natural environment.

On the occasion of the course "Interactive Sound and Image Systems", the students explore, organize and classify urban civilization data in the modern robotic era. The aim is to create an anthropocentric framework that provides solutions using data that are related to new technologies, urban environment and nature. Lectures, proposes everyday objects such as games, culture, arts, digital applications for city residents and visitors as contemporary prints of the digital age.

The course includes 2 main workshops: a) Object and model design using open fabrication technologies; and b) Workshop of open technologies for natural data management using the Arduino electronic platform.

Teaching Methods:

The lesson offers a good number of lectures on the relationships of different cultures with technology, science and the arts. The laboratories prepare the students technically by providing them with the necessary skills to develop the work, following the whole course of the conception of the central idea, its evolution during the planning phase and its implementation. The transmission of knowledge takes place through the implementation of the laboratories by solving a series of problems and issues that arise during the implementation phase.


Evaluation Methods:
