Critical Making for Maker Faire 2015

Critical Making

Class Public Exhibition 2015
Thursday, 7 may 2:30-4:00 PM
LOBBY Hearst Memorial Mining

Critical Making students operationalize and critique the practice of making through both foundational literature and hands on studio culture. As hybrid practitioners, students developed fluency in readily collaging and incorporating a variety of physical materials and protocols into their practice.  With design research as a lens, they envision and create future computational experiences that critically explore social and culturally relevant technological themes.

In this final provocation students were challenged to envision and create a landscape of new-wearable interactive technologies. Come experience these future wearable designs.
