Interaction with the Uncertain The information has brought together more visible uncertainty in the daily life. This course explores the ways of exploring, visualizing and interacting with the uncertain. The first quarter of the course starts with very basic notions of sensation, perception and cognition while understanding how the brain works and how human being reacts when confronting the uncertainty. Second quarter is about different methods for exploring the world around us, taking notes and projecting the world onto a registry (analog or digital, maps, books, journals, mindmaps). Third quarter deals with drawing the figures of thought, reflecting the self-projection, visualizing the uncertain and spatio-temporal data, using metaphors and abstraction. In the final quarter, students work on case studies regarding autism by analyzing, imagining and reflecting how an autistic brain interacts with the world.
