Introduction to arts+new technologies

This workshop is an introduction to arts+new technologies through Makey Makey.

First we have a look around different new media art projects to have an overall view of what type of things can be achieved in art with new technologies. After we introduce Makey Makey and other more advanced boards that we can get, like Arduino or Raspberry Pi.

After a little set up test, the attendees are asked to do a small sound project in groups using Makey Makey, Soundplant and Audacity – other software can also be used.

It can be adapted to different ages. It’s been already done with primary school and university students. It’s a very nice workshop to introduce news tech in art classes and art centers.
