A hands-on, studio design course where students work at the intersection of technological innovation and socially engaged art. Students will integrate a suite of digital fabrication tools with social design methods to create work that engages in cultural critique. Working with innovative technologies and radical, new art practices, this course will explore: hybrid art forms, critical design for community engagement, interventions in public spaces, tactical media and disobedient objects. These new making strategies will reframe our notions of people, places and participation.
The course was first offered in Fall 2015 at UC Berkeley in the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation and was enthusiastically received. You can sample some of the student work from Fall 2015. It will be offered again in Fall 2016.
There was also a special performance on the first day of class (see below).
