Large Scale Light Art (Series)

Back by popular demand! 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.
