Description

This course explores devices and machines for visual and acoustic perception. Participants will build a machine supporting their perception and develop tools to communicate their ideas. It emphasizes a bottom-up approach to electronic systems through experimentation, deconstruction and reverse-engineering of common-place technology.

Some of the topics, themes and methods we will look at include:

  • Do-it-yourself electronics
  • Electromechanical systems
  • Beautitronics
  • Speculative technologies
  • Experimental hardware
  • Structures for cyborging
  • Art-making robots
  • Baumarkt aesthetics

Please Note:

  • There is a 10 euro material fee for this class
  • This course will be taught in English
