ME 236: Tales to Design Cars By

Students learn to tell personal narratives using the automobile. Identify a variety of "drive along¿ experiences to connect historic with new car conversations. Examine car/driver interactions: use archive and media inspired approaches to show how memorable moments are amplified during semi-autonomous driving in polarized areas. Imagine riding in the back seat of an Uber ride with a friend, heading to SF after class, going home from a SOMA start-up job, or heading to a location between meetings. What if you are driving in an autonomous assisted vehicle on a sunny vs. snowy day, in an urban setting or a pastoral setting? A unique component of the class is that the participant driver will be positioned in the car with an individual that she always hoped to have a conversation with. Methods drawn from socio-cognitive psychology, design thinking and fine art help students examine car experiences; conduct planned and spontaneous user interviews; video tape; to gather findings from the emerging stories. Course culminates in final storytelling presentation and showcase. Class Size limited to 18.
