In Situ Design: Another World Is Possible?
Mondays 1:30 - 5:30
+ Labs to be arranged
This Project Studio offers a chance for conditioning the physical environment with computational and analog media in order to give other layers of possibility to a place and occasion. We explore possible methods for in-situ design. This studio encourages the use of technologies of performance including realtime video, realtime sound, but also analog techniques from performance, plastic arts, architecture.
Consult the Department's "Syllabus" for general guidelines about attendace, grading, and so forth.
The discussion sessions' format will be pretty free, but here is a prototypical pattern for a session:
Major Project format:
1. Project Title, Author(s),
Students will be evaluated based on:
in-class participation and responses in the form of digital artifacts (30%),
in-class midterm exercise (20%),
and final project (50%).
The CDA labs have installed Cycling74's Max / MSP (realtime sound) and Max/ Jitter (realtime video). And they have a set of webcams that you can borrow for installations.
