Introduction to Arduino & mixed media fabrication

Workshop Description 

Introduction to Arduino & mixed media fabrication is a practical hands on workshop that demonstrates creative, tech-enhanced media to produce interactive encounters with any artworks. The workshop covers the application of creative coding, micro-controllers and electronic, mixed media and uses software and hardware applications (solutions) to introduce (interface) elements of light, sound and movement design, wiring & soldering and electronic hardware & fabrication design.

Who we are.

Solange Kershaw & Damian Castaldi are artists who work with interactive, time based, mixed media. They have backgrounds in visual art, music composition, sound design, acoustic engineering, installation and performance and first met in 1998 through their ABC executive producer Robyn Ravlich. They recently relocated to Kandos after living in Blackheath in the upper Blue Mountains where over the past three years they have established themselves as working artists. Together Solange and Damian run a digital media production company called the Last Bureau and will be exhibiting their work in the upcoming Cementa Festival 2017.
