A Maker Approach to Art and Interactivity:
An Introductory Workshop to Electronics for Creative Projects
Ever wanted to make copper sing? Or use water to activate lights?
This hands-on, jargon-free workshop will introduce you to physical computing and show you how to develop and realise art proposals with interactive elements. Our artist-maker 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 science/arts project at school. It is especially suitable for anyone involved in engaged arts that support arts participation and/or invite audience interaction.
