In May there will be an extended workshop in wearable art and interactive performance at Arizona State University:
Workshop participants will explore emergent electronic technologies for performance and installation framed by the theme Lunar Outpost. Interactive technologies offer the means to extend, manipulate, and add color to our environments in a new manner. Workshop participants will work with Arduino micro-controllers and Bluetooth to create networked sensor systems for the control of lights, video projection and sound. Projects will emerge from group discussions and experimentation and can include interactive costumes, props and sets, or responsive environments. Students will learn methods for creating soft, sewable electronics as well as more traditional circuit building.
The workshop will run from May 18-29 at the Tempe, AZ campus. Workshop leaders are John D. Mitchell, Hilary Harp, Galina Mihaleva, and special guest Keiko Courdy. The application deadline is April 10.
