Architecture and design magazine Domus recently covered the Possible Mediums conference, a four-day workshop event that included the architecture schools of UK/CoD, The University of Illinois Chicago, University of Michigan, and Ohio State University.
The conference served as a pedagogical experiment consisted of twelve four-day workshops for students of the host institutions, and panel discussions, which were organized into four categories of "possible mediums". The conference took the same tone as the workshops: an ad-hoc experiment where foam, paint, plaster, Arduino-based robots, flocking, balloons, projections, flannel shirts and chickens were manipulated into a set of small-scale speculative research projects, each with its own projective theory.
