TuneTable is a project exploring how to increase interest in and promote learning about computer programming through music in informal learning spaces. XyloCode is the most recent design iteration in this project. XyloCode is an interactive museum experience to explore programming concepts in a collaborative and musical way. Designed for large touchtable screens, it aims at providing a brief and fun educational encounter with computing concepts in an informal setting. The main objective is to increase interest in programming. The modular design of the xylocraft allows for adaptive learning objectives for different age-groups.

The Expressive Machinery Lab (formerly ADAM Lab) explores the intersection between cognition, creativity, and computation through the study of creative human endeavors and by building digital media artifacts that represent our findings. Applications of our findings range from AI-based digital performance to interactive narrative experiences to educational media design and development.
