Lernziele / Kompetenzenaquire a fundamental understanding of designing physical objects
InhalteIn this course, we will explore how the choices of form and material affect our senses and interactions. Perceptual approaches to design consider form as something that affords a sensory-motor experience. We combine such approaches with traditional product design methods such as sketching of an object's geometrical form and constructing physical prototypes. We use simple materials such as paper to explore the potential of the three-dimensional forms. You will learn how to study and to design physical objects so that they trigger a sensory experience.

BemerkungHOMEWORK PREP:
• you have a personal connection to it and you tell a short story about it
• it should be disposable enough so your parents won't disinherit you if you lose it
• it should be geometrically complex and be comprised of different or interesting materials – the weirder the better

Also, bring drawing tools you feel comfortable with. We recommend an HB grade pencil and cutting knife, but you can bring additional gear if you want.
