Positioning as an experimental mobile UX/UI design studio, OnePlus is reimagining the future of mobile design with us. Throughout the semester, students will be introduced to the evolution of the award-winning hydrogen OS and its design process. They will find out a complicated operating system started somewhere simple and within reach. Students will also participate in real design challenges that OnePlus is facing in the speculative future. Students are responsible for researching these challenges in-depth and building radical prototypes with guidance and support from OnePlus's senior OS team based in New York City.

Collab: XR for the Real World

Fall 2021

Taught By: Anthony Deen

Section: A

CRN: 3941

Credits: 3

Are there uses for Augmented and Virtual Reality design technologies beyond their role in creating entertainment products? Can AR and VR tools be utilized to help create more livable and sustainable future? The primary audience for VR today is gaming, but there are a wide variety of industries that benefit from the application of VR and AR technologies in their professional processes. These include architecture, urban, interior, product and industrial design, and medical education. This Co-lab explores how VR and AR technologies can be applied to the design of more livable and sustainable cities. Each semester the students choose an abandoned or under-utilized, real-world site, and using AR and VR technologies - along with additional study in urban planning and design – create new and engaging environments. This course explores the history of immersive media; pioneers of VR; current applications of VR; the relationship between AR and VR, and extensions of VR that connect it to the real world. It also teaches principles of “placemaking,” experience design and developing communities using Smart City and APA (American Planning Association) guidelines. Students will work in a variety of platforms depending on their own backgrounds and interests. Authoring platforms will be Unity and UnReal Engine and modeling platforms will include SketchUp, Blueprint, Playmaker, Rhino and 3D Studio Max.

Collab: Spec. Storytelling

Fall 2021

Taught By: Barbara Adams and Jane Pirone

Section: B

CRN: 11934

Credits: 3

This collaboration studio will actively engage with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Innovation Service (UNHCR) and members of UNESCO’s Futures Literacy Network to explore storytelling and speculative fabulation as a practice of design. We will explore the capacities of stories to build relationships, challenge entrenched power dynamics, and prompt imagination beyond the representational. Engaging storytelling as a ‘cosmological technology,’ we will work together to develop alternative visions and approaches that challenge the myths, metaphors, and narratives that make it difficult to shape futures that center justice in organizational processes. With an emphasis on transformation, we will disrupt traditional storytelling practices and tropes through the use of cut-ups, recombinant narrative, visionary fiction, collaborative meaning-making, non-linear, and transmedia forms. In conversation with science fiction, queer and feminist theories, indigenous discourses, Afrofuturism, drag and other performative interventions, this course explores how speculative and critical approaches to design can act as catalysts for imagining alternate presents and possible futures. From alien kinship to the undercommons, we consider subversive responses to dispossession, marginalization, precarity, and the forces that foreclose or curtail the possibility of a future. We will be engaging intersectional themes such as ecological collapse, the politics of humanitarianism, belonging and identity, and living and complex systems.

Collab: (alt) reality

Fall 2021

Taught By: DeForrest Brown and jazsalyn nachelle

Section: C

CRN: 5424

Credits: 3

This course is an exploration of techno origins and experimental sound. (alt)reality (esc)apes the constraints of the dance floor and reasserts sound as technology to alter the present and reimagine the future. What is a ‘rhythmanalysis’ of technocracy? What are the sounds of resistance? How do vibrations reorient and alter our consciousness? We will analyze the evolution of experimental practice at the intersection of race, gender, class, and technology. Our research will reference works by Juan Atkins, Drexciya, Black Quantum Futurism, Alice Coltrane, Sun Ra, John Akomfrah, DeForrest Brown Jr. and more. As an embodied practice of our research, we will collect, morph, and transform sounds into 3D environments. Our collective practice will contribute to a virtual, immersive soundscape featured on alternate realities for Dublab Radio. *(alt) reality is a collaboration, supported by Ableton and New Art City.

In this Collab Studio, The New School students will work in cross-disciplinary teams with public health students from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to assist Little Sisters of the Assumption Family Health Services (LSA). We will research, prototype, design, and document projects for pilot testing that address the needs of LSA and its constituents. Broadly, students will collaborate in teams to help Little Sisters increase capacities to address food insecurity in East Harlem. Methods come from public health (needs assessments, community-based practice, evidence-based interventions) and design (co-design, iterative design).

Collab: Quantum Computing

Fall 2021

Taught By: Sven Travis and Lin Zhou

Section: F

CRN: 9163

Credits: 3

We are now witness to the rise of an entirely new type of computation - quantum. The quantum computer can quickly complete calculations that take supercomputers much longer. IBM, Google, Alibaba, Microsoft etc. have debuted major quantum computing programs. IBM-Q (IBM’s project) is now accessible to the general public. The design industry is following suit. Quantum skills are in demand, and this need is expected to accelerate. As artificial intelligence represented next generation skills 10 years ago and is one of the highest-paid careers today, quantum computing represents the future generation of hi-tech skill. Students in the “Collab: Quantum Computing” course will learn about quantum computing and apply it to real projects. No previous tech skills are required. The course will cover the fundamentals of quantum physics and quantum computing, including superposition, entanglement, interference, qubits, unitary operators, measurement and the quantum circuit model. The students will create quantum circuits using Open Quantum Assembly Language (OpenQASM), execute the circuits using real IBM-Q quantum computers, and interpret the results. Students will design and program quantum computer software using an open-source framework- Qiskit. The course will investigate the possible applications of quantum computing to art, design, education, and business, with special emphasis on fighting bias and inequity within society. Students will undertake both individual and group projects. IBM will provide the class access to its quantum computers via the cloud. The class may take a field trip to IBM’s quantum computer laboratories. Again, no previous tech skills are required.

Open to: All University graduate students, and undergraduate juniors and seniors. Some seats have been reserved for MFA Design & Technology students.
