Playtronica has collaborated with Swedish artist, Rebecka Tollens to create an interactive project using the Pi Cap and Touch Board. We caught up with the team to find out more about their project.
The exhibition is called ‘’Connected Drawings’’. Can you tell us more about the story behind this title?
The exhibition was called DAYDREAM / DARKNESS / DISGRACE. It was a great opportunity to collaborate with Rebecka, whose work focuses on visualising her dreams and then drawing them out. We recorded Rebecka’s voice while reading her nightmares out loud and linked the audio-clips to the black and white drawings so the audience could have a full audio-visual experience.
How does it feel to add voice to dreams? Does this make them more real?
Yes. This is what gave us the idea of making the drawings interactive in the first place. This concept was reinforced by a quote from Kandinsky, who said, “It would be great if people can interact with my paintings”.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
