glui sensor workshop @ tesla       20-25.June      Berlin

Sensors play a central role in interfacing between real and virtual  
domains by converting physical activity into electrical signals. This  
workshop aims to convey the required technologies for applying this  
to artistic projects, including sensor selection, design of  
conditioning amplifiers and use of interfaces in combination with the  
host computer.

The main focus of this year's glui workshop is on the use of sensors  
in interactive installations. We will also look into the reversed  
signal flow, i.e. the possibilities of actuators, like motors and  
lamps. Excursions towards robotics are possible, while live- 
electronic music won't get a turn this time (no video tracking either).
As usual, the workshop will be taught using the gluion sensor  
interface, so we will also cover its unique digital sensor options.

The aim of the workshop, apart from teaching the concepts, is the  
implementation of functional objects which will be presented after  
the workshop as part of the sound installation festival Sonambiente.

The workshop will be taught by Sukandar Kartadinata.

No prior knowledge is required, although experience with music  
programming environments (e.g. Max/MSP, pd, SuperCollider) will be  
helpful, as well as basic soldering skills. We ask participants to  
contact us early about their specific interests so we can adapt  
accordingly. We also encourage artists to bring in their current  
projects if they want certain sensor-related aspects be implemented  
as part of the workshop.
As we can only provide a very limited number of computers, people are  
asked to bring their own laptops.
