Workshop with Christiaan Zwanikken

22 December 2010

During this 3 hour workshop you will be building your own moving electronic and interactive object and you will be introduced with several fundamental principles of mechanical art. While working on your object, you'll be taught how to work with simple electronic control systems and how to hack a servomotor and allow your object to move at random.

Experience in the field of programming, electronics or mechanics are not necessary because you will learn as you go along. Zwanikken will explain the concepts and ideas behind his own work and, using it as an example, will demonstrate how you can employ different techniques in order to make your object move.

Date: Wednesday 22 December 2 - 5 pm
