LAES Lab & Expressive Technology Workshop

The LAES Lab and Expressive Technology Workshop is available to all LAES students and is used as a collaboration space to work on interdisciplinary projects with other departments and programs on campus. Improvements are on-going and equipment is updated as our needs predict; our primary goal is to make this space a great place for designing, creating, testing, and updating expressive technology work that combines aspects of theater, cinema, music, dance, electronic design, computer science, and innovative sustainable technologies.

The space is shared whenever possible in accordance with our mission as an interdisciplinary program. Students from the Colleges of Architecture, Liberal Arts, and Engineering have used our space for a variety of projects.
