In this project, second-year students created site-specific projection maps. They used mapping software to make dynamic digital projections of animated elements; blurring the perceived boundaries between the virtual and the real world to convey the sense that surfaces of the building are responsive.
The brief for Augmented Sculpture invites students to explore sculptural form and the way light affects the form by making a meaningful projection-mapped sculpture in the Studio. The process and outcomes of the exploration are documented using stills and video.
This project engages with the idea of non-linearity, and considers how to create non-linear structures using software tools. Over the study period, students explore and discuss examples of non-linear narrative systems and content which they produce, and be introduced to Twine and Livecode to further deepen engagement with the subject.

What considerations should we have as designers of interactive information systems? How can we deliver contextual content in a staged and understandable way? What are the design affordances and special cases in creating media for public consumption?
This intense and public-facing project explored these questions and others through collaboration with the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust, an organisation specialising the the preservation and display of classic buses. The students worked as a team towards a two-evening public event, producing an array of diverse responses to the space. Large-scale multi-screen projections, mapping, sound works and VR were among the approaches taken.

Design Domain remit is to consolidate awareness of design in the broader cultural field, highlighting the relationship between the Interaction Design specialist subject area and other design disciplines in the School of Design.
This years themes were BODIES, IDENTITIES, ACTION, and ENGAGEMENT . In the first semester students were invited to research, contextualise and analyse their thematic area considering topics such as: Artificial Intelligence, Privacy, Hacktivism, Open Source Culture
This project explores how we take complex information and simplify it into something digestible for interaction.
Students used Wekinator, a machine learning software, to explore chosen interactions. They developed a range of responses utilising web cameras, Kinect motion trackers and facial recognition software to translate complex data streams into poetic, visual and auditory outputs.
