This semester, we're getting to the Core!
We will be working on individual projects and create something connected that has a hardware component. The main objective of this semester is to create a working prototype, a proof of concept or a partial realisation of an idea. In order to complete this task in the short amount of time we have, it is essential to get to the core: of the project, the framework, the tools and why you are doing the things you do.
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 our works. We will look at creative strategies, efficient design processes (scribbling, wireframing, having a notebook), creating moodboards to communicate nonverbal expressions and try to embed our works in a theoretical and/or scientific framework.
Additionally, we'll talk about scientific methodologies, rapid prototyping toolkits for both soft- and hardware.
We'll look at technologies, fine and applied arts, share workflows and strategies, train presentation skills (write and talk) and - most of all - practice focussing to get to the core.
The objective of this course is to create a refined project outcome within the very limited time of one semester.
Teams and interdisciplinary groups are welcome.
The expected outcome should be one of the following:
