Cripping Technology

Fall 2023

iCourse and oCourse | Session A

Leonardo Lab Series

In what specific ways has society limited access to space and opportunities for individuals with disabilities, and how do these practices harm everyone?


How can art and technology change our relationships with space, bodies, and abilities?


How can art and technology deconstruct the way we build our world, from architecture to social structures, around the idea of a stable and idealized human body?

How can we research our intersectional human experiences in order to create innovative solutions through art and technology?

In this Leonardo Series of Humanities Lab students will reimagine enshrined notions of how a body-mind can move, look, and communicate. Through arts-integrated research into disability justice, students will engage and remake creative technologies through the lens of accessibility. 


  • Collaborators TBA
