Today I took part in the Kinetic and Interactive art surgeries workshop in the Techzone with Paul Granjon.
A very exciting workshop. Learning how to solder, use Arduino, code etc. is something that us Fine Artists do not experience everyday. Using Arduino’s in your artwork is something not everyone would like to do. But I do want to find out how I can impose these new technologies that are so easily accessible in my artwork especially now that I know I want to make kinetic art.
My knowledge about Arduinos was basic before the session, but after it I found out just the basic knowledge behind coding and using the examples of functions on the Arduino software, and how I could use these functions in my artworks which was very exciting and motivating.
