Workshop: Reactive Works - Audio & Video Control with Arduino and PureData

What's this workshop all about?

Learn a relatively easy way to create reactive video and audio works
that respond to physical sensors such as knobs, switches, and infrared
distance sensors all without having to write any code. In this
workshop we cover how to use a toolkit of hardware and software
(Sensors + Arduino + Firmata + Pduino + Pure Data) together to make
some weird and interesting things. If you want to use your own audio
and video clips in the workshop, get in touch ahead of time and we'll

Designing with Depth: Kinect for the Kinda Non-Mechanical Audience

About the workshop.

The Microsoft Kinect is a camera that sees in 3D. It makes it easy to help your computer make sense of the world.

This workshop will focus on using the Kinect to make your computer-attached projects see better. We'll learn about the basics of installing and using the Kinect (mac only, I'm afraid), some introductory computer vision, and using these tools to make your work see like you, move like you, and even look like you.

Workshop: Arduino & DMX control with David McCallum

About the workshop.

DMX is a communication protocol that has become standard in theatrical lighting and effects control. You know the hardware already: DMX cables are those big fat ones with three or five prongs, and you see them around any concert or theatre set-up.

Workshop: Intro to Analog Robotics with Michael Awad

About the workshop.

This hands-on workshop will teach the basics of robotic components, in theory and in practice. We’ll take apart off-the-shelf devices to identify motors, switches, batteries, and power supplies that make these devices move, and then learn how to re-appropriate them into our own robotic projects. No computers, microcontrollers, or programming necessary.

Workshop: Sensors! with Jessica Field

About the workshop

The workshop will introduce you to a variety of different sensors. Explain how they work, show the three different types of interfaces to work your sensor and prepare you for using any sensor you would like in the future. This course is designed to show you all the dirty tricks to avoiding the microcontroller to make interactive art, it is also designed to learn to understand when you need a microcontroller to make your projects work.

Workshop: Making the World Move Artfully (Kinetics) with Robert Hengeveld

Making the World Move Artfully explores the use of motors and other sources of movement within art making. The workshop has been created to provide an overview of the many methods of making things go that are available to artist. It will explore how to choose the best option for a given task, and finally how these decisions influence the way in which an artwork is seen and understood.
