Projectcolloquium:​
  
-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.+This course adopts a **__SEMINAR__** ​ format that requires students to participate actively in class discussions.

 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. The course makes use of an online sites – NYU Classes – that will serve as a repository for required readings, assignments,​ and additional course materials.
