Teaching activity at Politecnico di Milano. Teaching supervisor: Michele Mauri for "Final Synthesis Design Studio" and "Creative Coding". Partners: Michele Mauri, Ángeles Briones, Gabriele Colombo, Simone Vantini, Salvatore Zingale, Tommaso Elli, Beatrice Gobbo
The studio-course is structured in different phases, on a path that explores different dimensions of data analysis, information and communication design. Students will start by representing the theme using structured data and information produced and shared by reputable sources, designing a first visual synthesis. At this stage, to ensure a correct relationship with the data, statistical notions and tools are introduced. In the second phase we will focus on the debates that feed the controversies around the selected topics by using unstructured data and information produced and shared by non-institutional organizations, communities, collective entities or individuals and activists via the Internet. Finally students will design a (data) experience with the aim of engaging a broad public in understanding the complexity of the issues at hand.
My role was of teaching assistant, participating and hosting lectures, tutorials and exams beside the professors of the course.
Creative Coding is a course for design students who want to explore the potentialities of coding (for creative, communicative and artistic purposes). No prior knowledge of programming is necessary, but having an interest or background in the topic and willingness to learn new tools would be beneficial. During the course basics of coding will be provided, as well as a critical discussion of the state of the art. Students will use p5.js, a library meant to make coding accessible for designers and artists.
