Under the umbrella of the curricular theme Technology, this group project is a part of serial explorations of the intersection of design and technology. The project title Techncolagy is a compound word consisting of technology and bricolage, a term introduced by cultural anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss meaning construction or creation from a diverse range of available things. This project exaggerates relational design, and experiments with generative processes and performative experiences to develop content. In this project, each person takes an essay chosen from another person’s thesis bibliography, and designs an event as a probe to communicate the essence of the essay, as well as to create design opportunities. The project embraces improvisational and situationally-based approaches.
