Learn how to control robotic lights, theatrical dimmer units and addressable RGB LEDs! Participants will explore different ways of controlling sample lighting units (provided) using Arduino, Processing, and openFrameworks, and will consider ways that a small breadboard circuit can be scaled up to a large artwork. We will have samples of many different types of lighting fixtures to control, and discuss ways that you can create your own lighting fixtures.

Drones have a complex image, not least due to the fissure between drones as surveillance and weapons, and drones as recreation and art. The Drone Project at InterAccess will engage drones of the latter category—small quadcopters—as tools of creative investigation. This may include using drones to make art, using drones as art, and using drones as the subject of art.

Surface-mount is the new black. Learn about component package sizes, footprints, soldering techniques and how to troubleshoot hand-soldered surface-mount boards. In this workshop participants will assemble the SoundSpark board by SenseBridge, using a variety of surface-mount soldering tools and techniques. This is a rare chance to learn a highly sought after skill in a group setting!

Learning the basics of electronics is vital for anyone looking to create interactive or new media work. This workshop, geared to artists, is for those new in electronics, or for those who need a refresher. Keeping math at a minimum, you will learn the basics of electricity starting with Ohm’s Law, and work your way up to building simple digital circuits with CMOS chips, transistors and LEDs. You will learn how to interface these circuits with motors, sensors and other devices. Fear not: math will be kept to a minimum in this workshop.
