Wearables and Collaborative Performance

In this full-day workshop you will learn to use Bluetooth and Arduino (in the form of the LightBlue Bean) as well as various body sensors to create generative designs through collaborative performance. You will get your feet wet with writing Arduino code, reading and managing sensor data, sending wireless messages and interfacing with Processing.  You'll learn to think conceptually about the body and its relationship to time, space, and technology. You will create live generative art in a collaborative setting (!!!). This workshop will get you sensing, moving, playing and drawing in code using your body.  


Materials:  You'll get a LightBlue Bean that you can keep for your future performance, plus a handful of DIY sensors that you will make during the workshop!

Materials Fee: $40

Workshop Fee: $75 (Members); $100 (Non-members)
