As part of the 'Manus Et Machina' course we look into the development of art, design, and technology, and try to see how it evolves over time. The field trip brings us to important and very interesting sites around the UAE that will let us reflect on what we have learned and discussed so far: What is technology? What are the technologies earliest representations? How did art and design help us to develop our society? Where do we come from, and where will we evolve to?
Participation: I expect everyone that is unable to join to send Felix an email with a reason. If he does not receive an email before Thu 24th, he expects your participation! If you have friends that would like to join the group, please also send Felix an email.
