WORKSHOP

Touching Sound, a workshop by Pierre Berthet (BE)

Listen what we touch

touch what sounds

sounds knead ears

ears catch time

Ingredients:

tin cans, water, steel wires, bamboo, plastic bags, tubes, dead plants, D.C. motors, sea shells, snail shells, stones, buckets, filter queen, hooks and gloves, balloons, straws, bottles…

Things own time are objects

they own space, they own time.

We walk with sounds in our hands

on our head

in our mouth, moving tongues while singing

moving lips while blowing

blow blow blow


Introducing ShrimpCraft! Tools for the water curious. OPEN workshop

Amanda Steggell (Oslo, Norway) with Ross Dalziel and Adrian McEwen (Liverpool)
Open call for participants!

ShrimpCraft! is a project building water sensing computer kits with- and for kids.

The approach is for the group to become co-researchers and assemble simple water sensors based on the Arduino platform, and then use them to explore their water environment.

box_amanda

Instead of Arduino, we use shrimping.it to buy ‘shrimp core’ kits with Persistence Of Vision extender kits. Shrimping sell cheap kits and distribute free information on how to build Arduino compatible breadboards for prototyping.

Children build their own ‘computers’ and sensors and then visualise the data using simple LEDs flashing on the breadboard, a simple processing sketch and then draw graphs in minecraft on the FACT server at mc.fact.co.uk as its a space young people are very engaged with. Along the way they are introduced to how to go about making inferences from the data they collect in the environment; does a certain temperature and muddy water mean the water is healthy? Or do we need water full of useful stuff for animals to live in it?

Amanda Steggell (Oslo, Norway) is choreographer, Professor at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Academy of Dance. She works with shifting contexts of choreography in contemporary society through open research and experimentation.

Together with Ross Dalziel (DoeS Liverpool , UK) she is co-founder of Currently, a research initiative that aims to get people to engage with the marine world in new ways across different disciplines, from sailing to soap making and computer science.

Participating are a loose collective of artists, architects, scientists and technologists living mainly in coastal regions of Norway and the UK. From 2013-14 they have included Hillevi Munthe, Elisabeth Weihe, Jana Winderen, Etienne Gernez, Adrian McEwen, Hans Jørgen Wallin Weihe and artist groups Open Source Swan Pedalo, Owl Project and POINT FIVE. They have worked alongside Liverpool’s National Oceanographic Centre (NOC), National Museums Liverpool, Liverpool Maritime Museum and National Maritime Museum Oslo.

Each has a passion for the water and a drive to uncover hidden and forgotten spaces of the marine environment. Together they are producing new, exciting and eclectic work for the public to engage and play with – an open response to the marine sciences and maritime culture.

Solar kinetic sculptures. OPEN workshop.

Workshop by Egil Paulsen (Oslo, Norway).
Creating simple solar kinetic sculptures (full workshop plan is under development).

Solar Sculptures
Nature gives way to speciation depending on the building blocks it can offer. Only by the decades, enormous amounts of plastic, silicon and metals has been dug up, refined, and put into circulation. It has been said that we are the genitals of our technology. We exist only to improve next years model. How can we recognize this quiet neighbour?

Kinetic sculptures: solar cells, dc motors, melted plastic, infrared heating lamps, table.

Egil Paulsen will held a presentation showing works including Solar Sculptures, Ultrasonic Vision, WiFi-Shamanism, and a newly completed face tracking installation done for a big mask exhibition at Rubin Museum of Art in NY.


Sonification & the Physical. OPEN workshop

Jon Nordby
Open call for participants!
OPEN SOURCE FESTIVALS – DO IT ANYWAY (Sheffield, Uk)
16-05-2015 12:00 16:00

Workshop by Jon Nordby (Norway) where we will use visual programming in Flowhub to create custom sensors, interactions and sound experiences.

As a basis we have microcontrollers (Arduino) wired with sensors, both off-the-shelf and custom-built.
These we will connect to our laptops and/or embedded Linux machines (Raspberry Pi) and use
SuperCollider to create sound from these.
imgflo-preview-edges

Depending on the interest and feedback, we may go on to develop an installation or performance
to be completed during the festival.

To participate send an email to: piksel15[at]piksel.no

Participants should bring:

* Laptop (Linux/OSX/Windows)
* Headphones

Links:

* [SuperCollider]
* [Flowhub]
* [sndflo]
* [MicroFlo]

Jon Nordby is a creative software and electronics engineer who specializes in open source, Linux and Embedded Systems. Previously he has contributed to various libre graphics projects, including MyPaint, GIMP and OpenRaster. Since early 2014 Jon works for The Grid, developing the Flowhub visual programming IDE and runtimes for microcontrollers (MicroFlo), image processing (imgflo) and sound synthesis (sndflo).
For the last year he is also an active member of the Bitraf makerspace in Oslo, researching and developing digital fabrication methods including 3d-printing.

    For the first time, the Critical Engineering Working Group are opening their workshops to the online realm. It is a unique opportunity to join Danja Vasiliev and Sarah Grant this Friday and Saturday for the hands-on workshop using Hotglue. On the 10th and 11th of December Bengt Sjölén and Danja Vasiliev will work together again to lead the workshop Selfhosted. Join us sending an email to piksel21(at)piksel(dot)noWeb-pages made with HOTGLUE never look the same - each page is a new creation of its author.Hotglue by Critical Engineering Working Group / Danja Vasiliev and Sarah Grant3-4 December 2021 – 15:00-17:00 hours.piksel.no/2021/05/19/hotglueBuilding websites using Hotglue is fun – and a great, hands-on way to learn about visual design, markup language and hyper-links that power the web. But to do so, one – more so than ever – needs proficiency in the language of the web (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) in order to participate.Hotglue is a FOSS “What you see is what you get” editor for the web. At the workshop a free-to-use grass-roots service Hotglue.me will be used to allow quick hosting of webpages.HOTGLUE Content Manipulation System is a unique tool for DIY web-design and Internet samizdat. System design is based on several fundamental rules primarily aimed at preserving visual homogeneity between editing and viewing modes. This structural transparency of HOTGLUE UI permits its users to disregard any separation of Content and Design and /ultimately/ to remove Design as such from their creative practice.Danja Vasiliev and Gottfried Haider believe that modern web-users shall be given an easy yet powerful, online (in-browser) authoring tool for making exciting, personally distinct and otherwise odd web-pages. Page contents suddenly become something more then only text blocks and images; user begins to construct web-pages as multi-layered collages where textual is visual and vice versa. Web-pages made with HOTGLUE never look the same - each page is a new creation of its author. ... See MoreSee Less

    “Samizdat: I write it myself, edit it myself, censor it myself, publish it myself, distribute it myself, and spend time in prison for it myself”, Vladimir BukovskyThe term ‘samizda’ was coined as a word game by the Russian poet Nikolai Glazkov in the 1940’s. He included the note ‘samsebiaizdat’ (self-published) in the copies he types of his poems. HTML SAMIZDAT is a web creation proposal made directly from the browser, collective, open and instantly visible. Using the web as a support and canvas, it is proposed to create a joint site, a samizdat, through the appropriation of html code and multimedia objects. To do this, we will use the Hotglue tool, developed by Gottfried Haider and Danja Vasiliev, and worm.org.You only need a computer with Firefox browser installed to participate. Programming and code skills are not required.To attend send us an email to piksel21(at)piksel.no. The workshop will be online through a BBB video chat.
