This semester, we're getting to the Core of Things.
 +
 
 +
We will be working on individual projects and create '''something connected that has a hardware component'''. The main objective is to create a working prototype, a proof of concept or a partial realisation. In order to complete this task in the short amount of time, it is essential to get to the core of the project.
 +
 
 +
Every participant or team has to ''report their project progress every week'', as we're taking a look at various strategies how to focus and refine. We will look at creative strategies, efficient design and (soft- and hardware) prototyping processes, creating moodboards and embedding our works in a theoretical and/or scientific framework.
 +
 
 +
Teams and interdisciplinary groups are welcome.
 +
 
 +
'''The expected outcome should be one of the following:'''
 +
* '''a scientific paper submission for a conference'''
 +
* '''a documentation for an artwork to be commissioned or exhibited at an arts competition or festival'''

* scribble in a notebook (daily)

* have a blog / tumblr / facebook / whatever / wall of inspiration, updated weekly

Description (EN)

This semester, we're getting to the Core of Things.

We will be working on individual projects and create something connected that has a hardware component. The main objective is to create a working prototype, a proof of concept or a partial realisation. In order to complete this task in the short amount of time, it is essential to get to the core of the project.

Every participant or team has to report their project progress every week, as we're taking a look at various strategies how to focus and refine. We will look at creative strategies, efficient design and (soft- and hardware) prototyping processes, creating moodboards and embedding our works in a theoretical and/or scientific framework.

Teams and interdisciplinary groups are welcome.

The expected outcome should be one of the following:

  • a scientific paper submission for a conference
  • a documentation for an artwork to be commissioned or exhibited at an arts competition or festival

Every student/team also has to:

  • scribble in a notebook (daily)
  • have a blog / tumblr / facebook / whatever / wall of inspiration, updated weekly
  • collect papers and websites with Mendeley (or similar referencing software), updated regularly
  • have weekly (brief!) presentations: about research topics, previous works, ongoing progress

Course Methods

  • presentations
  • workshops
  • discussions
  • team collaborations
