This studio intends to further the design process through physical and digital research collection. We will investigate through the senses and build on using emerging technologies that articulate sensorial objects, environments, or experiences. This will be developed through data collections of various forms, the use of microcontrollers, and simulations that inform the research's perception.

We will create a data exchange between our cohort and collaborators revealed later in the semester to construct tools and interventions that better our surroundings. Given the recent trend in smart environments, students will develop a series of socio-technological projects that inform that concept while addressing inequities and environmental aspects.

Design is an art, albeit an applied one and we love designing.
