Consciousness as Interface : 2 day workshop : Hong Kong


Dates:
Sat Feb 28, 2015 12:00 - Sun Mar 01, 2015

Location:
Hong Kong, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China

Consciousness as Interface:
or, to put into the earth the front part of the head, from the forehead to the chin

Beginning from the idea that conscious experience is an interface, “a control device”, this exploratory workshop seeks to construct simple techniques and machines which may potentially be used to visualise such an interface. These will include flickering, stroboscopic circuits; copper and zinc plate batteries with electrodes to be attached to the eyelid; static amber discharge machines; and noise generators.

The workshop will finish with an open public performance/demonstration in which the participants will perform and show their work to the public.

Subject areas covered in the workshop include:
1). Your finger is a finger, your eye is a mouse
or, your eye is an eye and your finger is a mouse.

2). [C,H,O]-[Fe++Fe+++2O4]-[Zn]-[Cu] + Acid + Eye
or, sending an electric current into your eye.

3). Opening flicker portals in optic nerve fibres
or, staring directly into a high powered stroboscopic light firing at around 15-25 flashes per second.

4). Noise generators
or, noise generators.

5). Engaging the Holoflux
or, upon reaching a heightened state of awareness of conscious experience flowing around you, allow yourself to fall into the wormhole.

Clumsy non-utilitarian robotics workshop || 28-29th July


Dates:
Sat Jul 28, 2012 12:00 - Sun Jul 29, 2012

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

A two day intensive workshop where participants get introduced to DIY
robotics using Dynamixel smart servos and the URBISCRIPT language. During
the workshop participants will work in small groups to build tethered
robots with sensors and actuators and write simple but effective
behavioural code.

The workshop's facilitator Patrick Tresset teaches creative robotics at
Goldsmiths college. Patrick also creates robotic installations such as
Paul [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbdQbyff_Sk&feature=youtu.be ] which
have been internationally exhibited. Patrick co-direct the aikon-ii
project [ http://www.aikon-gold.com/ ]
at Goldsmiths where the drawing activity is investigated through
computation and robotics.

Cost of the workshop 60£.
Booking email ryan@nnnnn.org.uk

Participants should have a superficial experience of using a language such
as python, java, processing, c++ etc...
