Stemming from a practical exploration of designing and constructing interactive systems that can sense and respond to their physical surroundings, this course
delves into the captivating realm of light and its role in electronic artworks. As we extend computing beyond the paradigm of the screen, keyboard, and mouse, we
will learn how to connect sensors and actuators to create devices that can interact directly with their environment.
We will cover fundamental technical skills in electronics and embedded programming while gaining a deeper understanding of light-centered interactions and how
to design interfaces for non-screen-based devices.
This is a student-driven course. Topics will be determined by the interests/needs of the class.
No prior experience in electronics or programming is required.
