BE HERE NOW: Wares for Sharing
Humans first developed tools for survival, then for personal pleasure and finally for social engagement. These three phases are the topic of this course, in which we will research and design for how natural human impulses shape our current social tools. With a focus on experience be it physical, emotional or virtual students will create products or services that aim to embrace this very moment in history we’re living in.
The class will be given weekly assignments and readings. There will be 3 main assignments.
All the work produced in this class will be portfolio quality. Grading is based on successful completion of all assignments, blogging, class participation and attendance.
