Design studio with the goal of designing and prototyping interactive exhibits for the New York Hall of Science and/or the new 9/11 Museum. Students will creatively explore questions of digital aesthetics, the poetics of interactivity, and the architecture of public intimacy. Research activities will include field trips to explore interactive systems at work in public venues and sites of public remembrance, augmented by readings and discussions addressing topics such as physical/virtual boundaries, body-scale interaction, group-computer interaction, how physical ephemera matters, social media as an adjunct to public space, and environmental design that serves cultural needs.
