INTD 310 - S091: Core Studio Interaction Design

Course content: 
Topic: Future Engines
We are linked to millions of people every day. Connection is part of what has 'hooked' us to the interface, the new location for our life and fantasies. But although it has been inspiring, the original promise of the internet, marked by techno-utopianism built on ideals of free culture in cyberspace, feels unattainable in a reality where tech has enabled so much insularity. As we are facing a turning point towards more persistent and immersive virtual spaces, there is also a growing impetus to colonize them — can we use imagination to change this? In this studio course, students will take part in a transnational collaboration and develop a portfolio-quality project that merges interaction design and transmedia storytelling through emerging technologies. During the semester, students will produce a body of work in response to conversations about how the rhetoric of the interfaces, MUD models, and memory palaces allow us to become comfortable with new ways of thinking and being in several contexts at the same time. This class will investigate how interaction design can contribute to fostering hope in new futures while embracing prototyping as an experimental form of provocation.

INTD 310 - S031: Core Studio Interaction Design

Course content: 

Topic: Interaction Design and Community Science

“Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.”
― Rosalind Franklin

This spring semester core studio course will result in a design-led, portfolio quality interaction design project in the area of science and society, community science and design for more-than-human systems. Research will include outdoor field work as well as environmental justice and indigenous knowledge systems. Students will propose and develop interactive service design touchpoints and non-linear narrative experiences in collaboration with external partners such as Science World, local environmental non-profits, and indigenous-led conservation foundations. Resulting projects will include platforms and apps, exhibits and installations, as well as citizen science and data education projects.
