The workshop will be focused on teaching attendees how to use Ableton Connection Kit with software such as Max and Arduino to make creative projects that incorporate elements like motors, lights, and sound. Participants will learn how to connect, control, and monitor these elements in their projects. Additionally, attendees will also learn how to use webcam data to control mappable parameters, which can add an interactive and dynamic element to their creations. Overall, this workshop will provide valuable skills and knowledge for anyone interested in using technology for creative projects.
DATES AND TIMES: Saturday Feb. 25, 2023 from 1-3 pm
The Ableton Connection Kit workshop is designed for those who are interested in exploring the possibilities of combining technology and creativity. This workshop will focus on teaching attendees how to use Ableton Connection Kit in conjunction with software such as Max and Arduino to create projects that incorporate various elements such as motors, lights, and sound. The Ableton Connection Kit is a powerful tool that enables participants to connect and control a range of different technologies and communication protocols. It is a versatile platform that is well-suited for artists, musicians, and designers who want to experiment with new and innovative ways of working. Participants will learn the basics of connecting and controlling different elements in their projects. They will learn how to monitor the performance of their projects and how to make changes and tweaks to improve their creations. Additionally, attendees will also learn how to use webcam data to control mappable parameters, which can add an interactive and dynamic element to their projects. This feature opens up new possibilities for artists to create projects that are responsive to real-time inputs and environments.
BIO: Ivana Dama is an interdisciplinary artist currently pursuing a graduate degree in Sculpture at Yale University. She previously graduated from UCLA’s School of Arts and Architecture with a degree in Design Media Arts and Digital Humanities. Ivana’s work, which includes audio-video installations, robotics, web projects, and music performances, investigates the nonverbal expression of traumatic experiences through the lens of sound studies and sonic memories. Her art explores the themes of sound and space at various scales, including the microscopic, architectural, and satellite. Ivana has participated in over 30 group shows and had two solo exhibitions in Portland and Los Angeles.
