Learning Curves

Although October 2016 feels like a far off galaxy awaiting discovery, now seems like the right time to start thinking through the realisation of my proposal for Art Language Location – the annual event based in Cambridge that features ‘ innovative and experimental contemporary artists from across the UK and beyond who use text in their work’.

Boldly stating that I would use text as speech, speech as sonic trigger and text as CCTV annotation, of course I presented myself with a challenge. Sonic trigger? Aha! Arduino come to the rescue.

‘Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based onWiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.’

I have just ordered my starter kit and sincerely hope the ‘Easy To Use’ statement is followed through.!
