I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching DePaul’s first Industrial Design course, ID 101, Metaphysics of Objects beginning Fall term. A description of the course:
This course introduces the theory of the perception of objects, and how objects perceive each other, through the lens of object oriented ontology. Through lectures and projects, students will create objects and evaluate the influences of tools, materials, and thought on the development of things. Students will learn how to choose the appropriate tools and materials for specific design contexts, and be introduced to the theories behind speculative realism and object oriented ontology.
