Spring 2015 Computation Lecture Series: Making to Interact :: Interacting to Make

Curators: Dina El-Zanfaly, Terry Knight

Making in architecture and in the arts and crafts is an activity of creation – an active conversation between the maker, her senses, her materials, and the environment. Today, a new conversation emerges with the rise of new computational tools and digital fabrication machines that perpetuate the hylomorphic model of the separation between the design process and physical building.

Fall 2014 Computation Lecture Series: Learning to Make and Making to Learn

Curators: Dina El-Zanfaly, Terry Knight

Architecture, the arts, and the crafts are processes of creating and making objects, spaces, and experiences. Making involves improvisation, experimentation, risk, and unpredictability; it is a conversation between the maker, her senses, her materials, and the environment.[more]

Spring 2014 Computation Lecture Series: Computing in (e)Scapes.

      Computing in (e)Scapes Curators: Onur Yüce Gün, Terry Knight Humans precede computers in computation: we compute via intertwined acts of active perception and bodily action. We observe, interact with and learn from places and things as we wander in scapes. Our experiences are then put into use – this time to make (within) scapes. Unexpected discoveries, novel encounters […][more]

Fall 2013 Computation Lecture Series: Polyglot Drawing Making

    Polyglot Drawing Making Curators: Onur Yüce Gün, Terry Knight Synopsis: Drawing is an experiential act and computational tools are transforming and enriching our physical and perceptual engagements within drawing processes. This lecture series aims to raise discussions around emerging computational methods for visual explorations and alternative techniques for evocative representations. All lectures can […][more]
