This course is designed as a trigger to foster imagination and skills around human and non-human interaction. We will focus on a free, open source, and cross-platform Pure Data (Pd[[Pure Data]] a dataflow programming environment) visual programming language, which will become our tool and expression for building simple interactive applications. To bridge organisms and computers, we will use Arduino and DIY sensors. Participants with no skills in Arduino or electronics are encouraged to take the course on Arduino offered by Timm Burkhardt.
Students will be expected to develop small projects, which will be presented at Winterwerkschau and/or at the >top Schillerpalais project space in Berlin.
