This studio subject is designed to enable collaboration through the examination and development of 'smart objects'. This could involve for example, the development of playful and intelligent applications, smart objects with practical and marketable applications, objects with energy awareness, sensing systems or devices designed to adapt to/suit users and their behaviour. Students collaborate to examine the potential for imbuing objects with new audio, visual and mechanical capabilities by transforming the experience of using objects and devices. For the photographer this studio enables a useful fusion of modalities and re-situates passive (unresponsive), static media or time-based (fixed) media in a paradigm of user-centred, dynamic and responsive interaction, by challenging students to re-think and re-invent ways of communicating through physical experience.
