-Lecture and discussion will be the breeding ground for the development and creation of a **<font inherit/inherit;;​inherit;;#​FFFF00>​Theme t.b.d.</font>​**  ​(semester theme for Fall 2019): Every student will create ​prototype of a machine ​that has connection with the human body, and executing a certain ​task. Potential Machine Types are described [[:​machine_types|here]]. There is no specification for the nature of the machine, nor the task to be performed. ​The only rule is that the machine has to be connected to a person. ​The project will be complemented by lectures and case-studies,​ reading assignments (completed prior to class), class discussions and one-on-one meetings with the instructor. [[:​mm_project_phases|Project phases are described here]]. The course builds up the knowledge about futuristic developments and their use and influence from past to present, dealing with questions concerning ethics and values. “Media arts” and other concepts such as “digital arts” will be discussed as modern manifestations of the merging of technology with arts and media. Based on the fusion of readings, study, discussion and experiences,​ over the course of the semester students will develop an understanding of how mutually reinforcing and beneficiary a mix of Art, Design and Technology can be. Students will leave the course with a completed project to be displayed in an exhibition and a personal philosophy of about Art, Design and Technology.+Lecture and discussion will be the breeding ground for the development and creation of a //Handtool// ​(semester theme for Fall 2019): Every student will create ​the prototype of a device ​that can be used for specific ​task.

-This course adopts a **__SEMINAR__** ​ format that requires students to participate actively in class discussions. Considerable class time will be spent on presentations and discussions of related art and design projects, and lectures/​case-studies on different technological aspects. Hence, students are expected to read and research about a substantial number of projects, participate in classroom and online discussions,​ and develop a concept for a **__PROJECT__** ​ . Each student will give two case-study presentations,​ will write two essays, and give a presentation of the project prototype during an exhibition at the end of the semester (date t.b.a.). Each student is required to do a final project of a topic of their choosing that goes deeper into issues beyond what was discussed in class. The aim of the project is to develop the concept of a working ​machine ​that displays the technical and conceptual intellectuality of the student. While the focus in the first semester half 1 lays on concept development,​ the focus in semester half 2 lays on the design and development of the working machine prototype. Weekly presentations and ethical discussions of cases provide the groundwork for students to prepare written case analyses and accompanying oral presentations. The course makes use of an online sites – NYU Classes – that will serve as a repository for required readings, assignments,​ and additional course materials. Class discussions will be supplemented by multimedia material such as Keynote/​Powerpoint slides and video clips. +This course adopts a **__SEMINAR__** ​ format that requires students to participate actively in class discussions.
