Human experiences around attachment, sex and intimacy are complex and ever-changing. What happens when we start to scrutinise human experience to explore embodiment, desire and the senses in a more objective and practical manner? Can we design new devices and experiences that stimulate our pleasure to meet or even challenge our most personal and individual needs, as well as those of the people we care about?
In today’s increasingly digitised world, how do we create physical human experiences that are relevant, meaningful, and even political? The course will cover the entire process of making from start to finish. This will include exercises for idea generation, rapid prototyping, basic electronics, and introductory coding skills.
Students will take a hands-on approach to working with basic electronic components and sensors, using the Arduino platform as a base to play and to create magical things that bring ideas to life. This course is for people who have always wanted to delve into the world of soft circuits and wearable technologies but have never been sure of where to start. This one-week intensive will equip you with the technical expertise and confidence to continue working on your own projects long after the course has ended.
This program is for artists, designers, technologists, creatives, fashion designers, experience designers, and anyone interested in exploring wearable and intimate technologies from the ground up. This course approaches these topics from an introductory level. No prior experience is required.
