Interactive Sculpture Workshop

This second session involved using small computers that can be programmed to control all sorts of things. The Arduino so it’s called can be programmed relatively easily and the possibilities of what it can do seem endless with a creative mind. The photo above is a flickering candle light show that I was able to program the Arduino to do. We then moved onto touch sensors and using a more advanced program (Random) we collectively made a touch sensitive keyboard using pieces of foam. However; in essence we could have used anything as long as we covered it in conductive material. 
With this new knowledge and some equipment I am free to experiement with the software until the next session!
