Enactive Spaces

with Marije Baalman

26 sep 2011

Enactive Spaces is a hands-on introduction to distributed sensor networks for artists. In this workshop you will explore the potential of every-day rooms and spaces as reactive environments. As groups you will have six hours to collaboratively build three functioning interactive sound and light installations in different locations throughout the Frascati theater. The installations that result from your efforts will stay running throughout the Patterns + Pleasure festival. At the end of the workshop you will come away with a healthy knowledge of the potential use of distributed sensor networks throughout a space.

The sensor technology you will be using is Sense/Stage, a hardware and software framework for creating interactive environments with wireless sensor networks. Marije Baalman, one of the creators of Sense/Stage, will walk you through the usage of distributed sensor networks and provide expert guidance and technical assistance in understanding the possibilities of the system while you work on your installations.

A team of artists from sound and stage backgrounds will also be on hand to assist with your projects.
