As human beings, we inhabit made environments which inhabit territory that is apparently bounded on the one side by technology and on the other by art.  These environments are the result of ideas that have been initiated, designs that have been authored, projects that have been planned, and tools and machines that have been developed in order to alter materials to our purpose.  This program will explore that perceived boundary, asking questions about the nature of craftsmanship, the dynamics of technological innovation, the difference between tools and machines, and about what it means to "dwell."  This will be a hands-on learning experience engaging students directly and intensively in the practice of ancient skills, the operation of technologies from medieval to modern, and in the mechanics of innovation and invention.
