The first half of the semester is packed with a series of intensive workshops that merge traditional craft with emerging technologies of making.
We introduce Grasshopper and use this software to explore algorithmic patterning.
We learn how the over/under of weaving is the 1/0 of binary programming.
We learn theory and techniques of origami and translate that to algorithmic laser cutting practices.
We control electrons with wires, components, and code to sense and activate the world.
Establishing authentic engagement with an audience is a craft to be honed.
Ad hoc workshops will be developed throughout the semester as common needs emerge
