A Maker Approach to Art and Interactivity for Artists, Makers & Educators:
An Introductory Workshop to Electronics for Creative Projects
Ever wanted to make copper sing? Or use water to activate lights? Are you looking for creative ways to connect Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) subjects?
This hands-on, jargon-free workshop will introduce you to physical computing and show you how to develop and realise art projects with interactive elements. Our artist-maker-educator approach is all about tinkering with art, electronic and everyday materials to learn through experimentation and discovery.
By the end of the weekend you will have a basic understanding of the principals involved in easy-to-make light and sound responsive systems and the materials required. You will also have collaborated with other workshop participants to create an electronically triggered soundscape or an interactive environment/artwork.
This workshop is for creative people (both professionals and non-professionals) and educators, who want to do something different; whether it’s programme a touch-activated sound effects on the theatre stage or design a corss-curricular STEAM project at school. It is especially suitable for anyone involved in engaged arts that support arts participation and/or invite audience interaction.
