The body is the intense centre of our media world. This is a point often forgotten in the determination of media producers to communicate a particular message. As media producers our aim is to forge a visceral connection between bodies, between body and world, between body and data. This course introduces the student to interaction design via a series of practical exercises. It encourages students to experiment openly in the production of projects that explore the relationship between the body, media forms and media technologies. In the process studentspare introduced tr the use of sensors and input devices, feedback devices, and the dynamic visualization and sonification of real time and streaming data.
