The studio focussed on the Victoria Harbour precinct in the Docklands as the site of inquiry. Students explored the many facets of life and activity in the area, mapping out plausible augmentations of personal and social interactions. From this research, the students contemplated how we belong to a place and how affective connections, enabled through digital data narratives may invigorate our relationship with the tangible environment.
These investigations were realised through an introduction to electronic prototyping, sensors and data processing techniques. Notions on the agency of interactive technology were explored, experienced and reflected on. Consequently, the resultant projects became reflective prototypes that brought to the surface plausible new relationships with technology and the role it plays in design practice.
