Due to the popularity of the maker movement and Internet of Things, opportunities for making artwork driven by electronics is vast, great and cheap! A small internet-connected microcontroller goes for around $3 and programming them to do something interesting can be learned in a weekend workshop.
In this workshop, we will cover building basic electronic circuit building, how to use a microcontroller, interactivity with sensors and how to create an internet-connected thing. In tandem with the practical skills, participants will also engage modes of creative inquiry and will be encouraged to craft an artwork. Some examples might include a new musical interface, an internet-connected data sculpture or interactive space that senses and interacts with its participants.
