Blurring Boundaries Workshops – making with a focus on electricity #ArtTuesday

Via How to Get What You Want:

Electricity does not have to be cased up inside slick metal enclosures; we can also let it flow through painted pine-cones, carved traces, and the water in our bodies. The segregation of our abilities into discrete disciplines leaves gray areas to be explored and missing links to be made.

June 9-15, 2019 at Shakerag in Sewanee Tennessee/USA

This workshop will provide you with a time and place to disrupt your own practice by introducing new materials, tools, techniques, and places of making -with a focus on introducing electricity as a material property that can be used to create interactive crafts.

Carbon Nature – Carbon coated seed pods. Strung from copper threads. Hanging on a burnt branch. They clash in silence, but their contact is detected. What follows? Must every physical interaction have digital consequences?


This workshop will attempt to blur the boundaries between:
– natural & artificial
– indoors & outdoors
– craft & engineering
– art & technology

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR….

Hannah Perner-Wilson combines conductive materials and craft techniques, developing new styles of building electronics that emphasize materiality and process. She received a B.Sc. in Industrial Design from the University for Art and Industrial Design Linz and an M.Sc. in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, where she was a student in the High-Low Tech research group. Her thesis work focused on developing, documenting, and disseminating a Kit-of-No-Parts approach to building electronics.

 


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
