ARC 461i/561i Materials: Properties + Tests
The course will engage with a deep scientific and artistic study of glass, biopolymer, wax, and bioluminescence as the primary materials of an eotechnic paradigm at the intersection of sun, water, wind, and darkenss phenomena. Physical (mechanical, optical, acoustical, thermal, etc.) and sensorial-perceptive (kinesthetic, visual, auditory, haptic, etc.) properties will be the criteria for experiments that elucidate theoretical and practical applications of materials aimed at developing an inventive model of design practice with the capacity for new aesthetic and erformative qualities responsive to emergent human needs and environmental ethics.
