As part of the 2007 New York Electronic Art Festival, a series of workshops organized by Harvestworks will take place throughout June. These workshops have been curated to serve as a catalyst for public discussion, and they are also designed to convey curiosity and imagination as the artists’ play with the creative potential of technology.
The presenters will focus on making the use of sensors in an artistic work easy by covering all aspects of sensor interfacing (sensor output, signal conditioning, cabling, analog to digital conversion, data transmission, software interfacing, data processing) and not just one of these aspects. The 2 hours will be a panel moderated by Harvestworks Production Manager Hans Tammen to introduce each presenter and allow for a 30 minute demonstration of their product, highlight features, latest achievements, provide technical details, elaborate on company background/history, business approach, etc.
The session will include time to allow participants to show and discuss specific applications and demos that were made with their products and where the audience can get a better understanding of the capabilities of the product in specific environments.
ROBOTICS AND MUSIC WORKSHOP
Attendance will require an additional fee (not included in the regular registration) which will be announced shortly.
