ARDUINO INTERACTIVE CINEMA INTENSIVE
Expand the potential of cinema art with Arduino

Saturday March 19th 12pm-5pm
Sunday March 20th 12pm-5pm
Cost Members $195 Non-members $225 Enrollment is limited to 8
Explore the possibilities of Arduino, a versatile program for making interactive art. Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It's an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board. This three day intensive with LIFT Artist In Residence Enrico Mandirola will give you the knowledge and hands on training to bring Arduino into your cinema art practice. LIFT will provide basic Arduino hardware and required materials. Please provide an outline of your proposed project to firstname.lastname@example.org
by Friday March 11th 2011.
There's also a small display of Arduino-based kinetic art on the ground floor of 401 Richmond right now.
