Interactive Art with Arduino
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. This workshop will cover the background of Arduino, examples of projects, it’s ecology and what it means to work with an open-source hardware platform. The course will get hands on with Arduino boards, sensors and actuators. Explore Arduino to create interactive objects and environments and understand its potential for your art projects.
Introduction to Electronics for Artists workshop and/or equivalent experience is recommended. Workshop fees include course kit with an Arduino Uno, breadboard, resistors, capacitors, USB cable, various sensors and LED lights ($60 value) which participants take home for future projects.
David Han is a film, video and digital media artist living in Toronto. He received a BA in Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson University and completed an MFA in film at York University. Often employing playfulness and absurdity, his work negotiates the liminal state between cinema, video art and new media. His most recent work explores the ways in which traditional cinematic relationships with the screen are being challenged, altered and expanded by interactive technology.
