Activity#2: Fantasy Device-Part1 50+50

  1. Brainstorming: We start collectively brainstorming on fantasy devices. Fantasy devices are futuristic, speculative, unusual devices that you would like to see/use.
  2. Each student is invited to actively participate in the discussion suggesting their ideas and enriching the discussion with sketches on post-its.
  3. After 45mins we will give categorize the ideas suggested so far.
  4. -- break --
  5. In group of three choose a device and create a sketch for each of the following subjects:
    • What a person will see/hear/touch?
    • How the device is inviting the interaction?
    • How the device is answering to the interaction?

Project 1 (launch): hello world (individual project, not a group work)

Design a device which senses the environment and represent these data in a creative/poetic/meaningful/silly way. The output will be printed with low quality systems. Use these constraints in your advantage opposing or combining the precision of the digital with the fuzziness of the analogue world.
