The role, quality and new layers of communication made possible by technology are changing the characteristics of the physical and material engagement between users and the outcomes of design. The course examines the new relationship between people and interactive technologies that is redefining the meaning of objects, built environments, and systems. This is accomplished by re-assessing the meanings of "function" from the proposition that what makes an object "useful" and "practical" is its Emotional Relationship Value.
