  5. We tend to make divisions between fine art materials and

    technical materials. Approaching technical materials in a poetic way allows me to forget about these divisions and just think about what makes something interesting, and how tools can be used as tools, and not as means to ends. Daniel Wilson, Spring 2014
  6. The logic gate stuff, for sure. That was challenging, but

    good. I appreciate knowing that. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, and I’ll probably lose it. But learning about circuits... it’s one thing to just hook up an Arduino (like I did in college) but I liked how we really learnt what a chip is doing. Zak Greene, Spring 2014
  7. My understanding of poetic computation is that the rules we

    learn to use these tools, even if they conform to the laws of science and mathematics, are still created by people, so they are embedded with all of our aspirations and dreams and needs. Ida Benedetto, Spring 2014
  8. I feel like in my life my best teachers have

    been those who I have felt like are learning with me, who are still exploring. I feel like with these teachers the passion is passed on to the students, because you want to keep learning, because they are still learning. It feels like this is what Zach and Taeyoon have that quality. They are still exploring. That is this school’s special aspect. Tharit Firm Read Tothong, Spring 2014
  9. Artists working with technology have enjoyed sharing, teaching and giving

    away everything. It is the best way of pushing the boundary of what is possible and create community of support.
