Raspberry Pi pt. 3: Advanced topics

Students can take the workshops individually if they're already a bit familiar with the Pi, or can't make all three sessions.

 

Session 3: Advanced Networking Applications

Finally, we'll try to pull it all together by building an internet-connected application. The specific project will be chosen based on class interest, but could include a script that reads twitter and produces an motorized notification when certain terms come up, or an electronic mail flag that tells you when you have e-mail.

The Ultimate Intro to Arduino Workshop Series. 3 Parts!

NOTE: This is a 3-part workshop, taking place on Thursdays June 13th, 20th, & 27th.

If you've seen a piece of interactive, robotic, or electronic art recently that made you say "How'd they do that?" there's a pretty good chance that the answer is: "Arduino." This tool is proving to be endlessly versatile as it inspires growing numbers of artists, hobbyists, and makers to take on interactive projects.

Retro-Death Telegraphy: Part of the 2013 Subtle Technologies Festival

NOTE: You can only register for this workshop from the Subtle Technologies EventBrite Page! Click here and scroll down to the ticket option that says "Pre-Festival Workshop". Sorry for the runaround.

 

…an experimental laboratory for the construction of equipment to test theories of communication with the Unknown

We have actually touched the borderland where matter and force seem to merge into one another, the shadowy realm between the Known and the Unknown which for me has always had peculiar temptations.

Sound Art in Pure Data


In our second Pure Data workshop, we'll apply what we picked up in the first session to sound: recording it, playing it back and making it do strange and unpredictable things. We'll explore effects like delays and distortion, we'll speed sound up, slow it down and make it go backwards, and we'll think about it musically, building a basic sequencer.

Glitch: Embracing the Mistake

Glitch art

Glitch art is an amorphous term - a canopy who's tenants slip under and out of. These terms can be expanded to include much more than might immediately come to mind. This is because at their core they're simply a loose link to a key concept: the interest in the ‘mistake’” - Nick Briz

Interactive Video in Pure Data

About the workshop: 

In one afternoon, you'll learn how to make interactive, sound-responsive video using a totally free visual programming environment called Pure Data.

Pure Data, also known as Pd, is an open source graphical programming environment. It is frequently used by artists and musicians to create custom digital sythesizers, images that respond to sound and other inputs, or to interface with hardware such as Arduino and midi keyboards.
