Connected Expression at Blikwisseling 2015 Festival
One-week masterclass during Dutch Design Week at the Blikwisseling 2015 Festival.
Connected Expression was a workshop that focused on creatively combining computation and materials to produce novel interactive objects and experiences. The workshop involved exploratory design and rapid prototyping with software tools, including graphical and textual programming languages for generating sound and image with electronic sensors.
The workshop included presentations about designing computational media for playful learning and discussions about using these tools and concepts with a wide range of learners in creative learning environments. The workshop culminated with an informal exhibit of installations or performances open to the public.
