The purpose of the project module is for the student to gain insight into teamwork and the organization of design work in a design study, where focus is on collaboration in groups and between groups as well as in the development of one specific coherent interactive design concept. Special emphasis is placed on developing an original, innovative solution. Work must be done with both interactive and design aspects of the design concept, and with the interaction of these. The project must be illustrated and documented through an interactive installation that can be included in a larger exhibition.
