Workshop Summary

Join FutureEverything and artist Sam Meech for a one off an interdisciplinary workshop exploring art, new media, technology and design at the Shipley Art Gallery.

Students will have the opportunity to design and cut their own punch-card patterns, transform them into music using simple Ruby commands in Sonic-Pi and experiment with a digital knitting machine to knit together their patterns with conductive yarn. The patterned pieces will then be connected through Raspberry Pi and Bare Conductive Pi Caps to create a touch sensitive musical material.

This hands-on session is perfect for students interested in design processes, textiles and computation and requires no prior knowledge.
