This course introduces concepts, mediums, and techniques for creating interactive objects that use digital, tactile, auditory and visual inputs and outputs. The aims of interactive works will be discussed as students create responsive objects, hack and repurpose hardware, and collect and represent data. Students will also develop their design process through sketching and prototyping in pencil and with code. Students will approach interactive work with various inquiries, such as: What are the relationships of hardware and software? What makes an object interactive? How do you build inputs and outputs? When conveying different types of information (ex. temporal or spatial), what type of feedback should be used (ex. sonic, visual, or haptic)? Students will conceive, plan, and develop an interactive object with an awareness of the importance of their role as a designer and developer, rather than a consumer, of interactive media. Emphasis is on a critical awareness of new technologies, an articulated design process, and creative engagement with the medium.
