An international selection of artists working across the range of media from the visual to the sonic while pulling in elements of interaction and collaboration present projects that will involve, provoke and entertain you.
Marcus Lyall (UK): Pitch Control
Take a seat, limber up your fingers and play away as keyboard notes are replaced by recorded singing whilst the heads of 30 different singers are projected in the room to form a virtual choir.
Alex Zivanovic (UK): RFID gesture-generating robot
Swipe a commonly used RFID card and the robot will produce a graceful performance unique to your information.
Yoon Chung Han (USA): Jellyfish musical instrument
Create your own sound composition over four octaves with Jellyfish, the interactive sound installation.
Ryan Jordan (UK): Sensory Response Systems
Sensory Response Systems is an exploration of audiovisual performance using an array of sensors responsive to physical movements. It also looks at reshaping and replicating the body through the use of fabric, textiles and technology.
Ger Ger, with Jakob Kort (Germany): SOUND NOMADS
The constant search for noises, sounds and rhythms is at the heart of SOUND NOMADS’ approach to creating ephemeral - interactive sensor based - playgrounds.
Neil Mendoza, Anthony Goh, Simeon Rose (UK): RFID art
Swipe your transport card or other RFID-based object and you will be invited to recreate a famous piece of art. The unique nature of the RFID tag will assign an area of the artwork which will flash up on screen. Use your hands to draw your version and feed into the collaborative work.
Bart Koppe (Netherlands): Mixing Cities
Mixing Cities brings together, in real time, the sounds of several cities in an audiovisual installation. By choosing and switching between the cities you can make your own journey between the cities and get a different experience of distances and space.
Martin Howse (UK/Germany): Local Resonance Amplifier
Reacting to changes in electromagnetic emissions and signals, the Local Resonance Amplifier acts as a parasitic device revealing the hidden interactions between communications technology, power lines, biological phenomena and geological properties.
The workshop will provide an introduction to all things video in Flash.
You will be looking at converting a video file of your choice into a Flash FLV file for delivery for the web touching upon different formats and encoding set ups. This will involve the use of default Flash components for a quick set up as well as an introduction to Object Oriented Programming and alternative working environments to Adobe for more complex deliveries such as custom built players and handling of interactive features using cue points.
Bring along a laptop with Flash CS4 installed (you can get a trial version at Adobe) and a video file of your choice, ideally quicktime.
Immo Blaese is a multimedia designer with a strong background in the development of Flash based project. In the past this has included interactive video sites for the releases of Sin City and Resident Evil. He has worked for numerous clients such as the Science Museum, Electronic Arts, Deloitte, Capcom and Buena Vista International.
11.00 - 1.00 Introduction to SDK and the development process
Introduction into Objective C
Result: Small Application i.e. Hello World, simple display of
1.30 - 4.30 Depending on what has been covered in the morning session, the afternoon session will look at a more complex application. i.e. Pong to guide through the different aspects of graphics, sound, user interaction.
*NB In order to attend this workshop you should have knowledge of object-oriented programming, ideally C, C++, Objective C or Java.
This workshop is for complete beginners to the Arduino, a
microcontroller system aimed at artists and designers (www.arduino.cc).
It will get you up and running with the system and introduce some of the
things you can do with it in the field of Physical Computing (sensing
and controlling the physical world with computers). You must bring your
own laptop (Windows, Mac or Linux) and attend at least the morning session.
Alex is a freelance technology consultant, educator and artist,
specialising in the field of Physical Computing (sensing and controlling
the physical world with computers). He is a visiting tutor at the Royal
College of Art and Goldsmiths and a visiting scholar at the Lansdown
Centre for Electronic Arts at Middlesex. Previously, he was a researcher
at Imperial College London, developing mechatronic systems for medical
use, including medical robotics and virtual reality training systems for
