In this course, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of making through electronics and fabrication in order to produce a wide range of creative work. The lectures will focus on materials and tools as used across cultures, geographies and timelines. We will critically analyze the making histories within which many groups are marginalized, missing representations of grassroots makers in current narratives and infusion of for-profit ethos in open movements. The course will introduce current tools and techniques charted through multiple historical and social perspectives.
