Images of the Earth
Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total hours). This is an introduction to the new, rapidly evolving, and interdisciplinary field of Earth System Science. This course emphasizes the ideas of Earth as a planet within the solar system; the interactions among the components of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere; and global changes. Studying Earth as a system is accomplished by the analysis of remote sensing data. Images acquired by airborne and spaceborn

The listening room, Camden Arts Centre
This version of The Listening Room is minimal, one microphone and two loudspeakers in the Reading Room of Camden Arts Centre, a relatively small space for this work. The Reading Room is the former entrance to the building, this entrance has been bricked over to create three highly reflective wall surfaces in the room. The room resonance is so pronounced that my usual placement of microphone and speakers would tend to fix on one pitch and stay there - to introduce more of the available freque
The listening room, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham : A gallery installation and an offsite project
The three upper galleries of Ikon house two variants of The Listening Room. Each installation amplifies the sound of a gallery in real time, introducing low-volume feedback, pitches delineated by the architectural characteristics of the space and modulated by the transient nature of people passing through. In between is the central gallery, a space where the sound of the two Listening Rooms actively mixes and merges, allowing the two activated spaces to affect each other - in a very real sen
La natura della mediazione offerta dai sistemi basati su micromondi all’apprendimento della matema
In questo articolo prenderemo in esame il sistema ARI-LAB che abbiamo realizzato per sostenere gli alunni nello sviluppo di capacità nel problem solving aritmetico e cercheremo di descrivere alcune caratteristiche che questo software rende disponibile con il fine di valutarne le potenzialità sul terreno didattico. Nel fare ciò assumeremo due riferimenti: da una parte l'analisi della natura del sapere coinvolto nel problem solving aritmetico, descritta nella prima parte di questo lavoro, dall'
