Arduino Art: Breathing Books, Twitching Dolls, Blinking Textiles
On Saturday night the Brooklyn hacker collective NYC Resistor (PopTech 2009 presenter on “smart content” Nick Bilton is a founding member), hosted a show on Arduino art and design curated by Alicia Gibb with breathing books, twitching dolls, and a marvelous blinking jacket.
An Arduino is a microcontroller (small computer) that can be used as a tool for artists and designers (for more, see Alicia’s February 2010 thesis on the subject).
Bre’s blog post has great background on the artists and designers in the show; some highlights from Saturday night are in the video below:
What are your favorite pieces of computing art? And congratulations to Alicia—
