November – January 2017
The theme of the module is Action & Failure. You should perform a self initiated design exploration. In this process you are encouraged to think about action as a way to actively engage with people, situations and making.
In the module you will use different methods for prototyping, in order to open up for how prototyping can be used in different stages of the design process, in various contexts, and with different intentions. By the end of the module each student should exhibit a clearly articulated design proposal.
