All Out Design 5 Sarsfield Street
10 am Wednesday 15th – 5pm Thursday 16th September
Limited to 10 participants
Skill level: Beginners
Using e-waste as raw material, this workshop offer participants to become familiar with basic hardware and software hacking / recycling while at the same time gaining hands-on experience making an interactive art project.
This workshop is open to participants of different backgrounds and no programming or electronic skills are required. The idea is to start from scratch and create a complete project over a short time, including concept, design, electronics / interfacing, and functional programming with Arduino, Max/Msp, Pure Data or Processing.
In this workshop participants will deconstruct readily-available, cheap electronic devices into interactive tools is more than a lot of fun; the process offers the same visible, hands-on learning and understanding acquired through dissection. By re-purposing second-hand hardware or cheap toys, a commercial, mass-produced product is transformed into a unique device, with potential for new and original means of expression or communication. The objects produced in this workshop will be exhibited as part of the Tweak exhibition in the Church Gallery Space in LSAD.
