Trampery festival at the Barbican

Festival of designers, makers, entrepreneurs, artists organised by the Trampery at the Barbican in August.

“We'll try an experiment to create an emergent festival around inter-disciplinary collaboration.  pop-up workspace with a residency programme, talks, demonstrations, performances, workshops, panels, exhibitions. the central goal is to bring together people who are pressing the boundaries of how technology is used in music, visual arts, theatre and design. as well as showing off existing work we'd like to try and create new work during the project and cultivate cross-sectoral collaborations that didn't exist before. we'd also like to have threads of learning and opportunities for young people running through the project."

Provides an interface for Arduino projects to talk to the Internet via Twine (Twine includes sensors for temperature, moisture, position, and soon, vibration). Price: $35 - with Twine $150

Client mobile application running on an iPad built using OpenFrameworks. Omnidirectional vehicle was build with Arduino and the system uses WiFI for communication between the client and the device.

This installation uses non-newtonian fluid, an arduino board, a speaker and processing to allow surface to change from liquid to solid, from plain to three-dimensional symmetric patterns.


As always please add here any comments and suggestions.
