In this intensive workshop Michal Mitro will introduce visual artists to the world of interactivity. Together you will (briefly) look at the history of interactive art and use of interactivity in visual and time-based arts followed by an exploration of several strategies on how to approach interactivity from both a conceptual and technological perspective. Participants will be guided through a hands-on project that directly demonstrates and teaches how simple interactive elements can be embedded into an artwork to create a meaningful piece.

Following on, participating artists will be introduced to the basics of simple analog electronics in order to directly utilise them in the project. All parts of the circuit will be connected together (no soldering required), to Arduino, and to LEDs embeded in grown borax crystals at which point ultrasonic proximity sensors will be introduced to create an interactive environment.
