Critical Making
User Research, Speculative Design, Prototyping
Critical Making is a graduate-level New Media course taught at UC Berkeley. In this course we critiqued the practice of “making” through both foundational literature and hands-on studio culture. As hybrid practitioners, we developed fluency in readily collaging and incorporating a variety of physical materials and protocols into our practice. With design research as a lens, we envisioned and created future experiences that critically explore social and culturally relevant technological themes.
