Series: Building Interactive Installations

with Mirabelle Jones



Learn Arduino and Touch Designer skills to build the interactive installation of your dreams! Playgrounds like Meow Wolf and Museum of Ice Cream have taken the art world by storm but micro controllers for immersive art has a rich history that includes Disney Park Imagineers. Explore how sensors and inputs can be used to trigger meaningful shifts in LED lighting, projection, and sound.

Each of the 5 workshops can be taken alone, but you'll get the most out of joining for the entire ride. The sessions are suitable for beginners to both Arduino and TouchDesigner. They will also be helpful to seasoned developers and designers looking to expand on their existing knowledge of interactive systems.

Please note an Arduino Circuit Playground Express, some Banana Clips, and a USB Cable are required to follow along. Because of unpredictable shipping times we suggest ordering these ASAP!
