WORKSHOP DETAILS

Our workshop will use the cathode ray tube as a platform to teach students how to make DIY audio/video synthesizers and analog video transmitters. Through this workshop students will learn techniques such as soldering, hardware hacking and circuit bending, and gain knowledge of analog and digital audio/video synthesis and DIY electronics. The workshops will incorporate theories of reappropriating technological e-waste for artistic purposes, and discovering new and alternative aesthetic purposes for obsolete devices.

The workshop will have two parts:
Building a DIY VGA cable to bend audio Into video
Building a DIY analog video transmitter
There will be a 1hr. lunch break.

We’ve previously taught these tutorials at the Dallas Medianale; th Paseo Festival in Taos; Watkins College of Art, Design, andFilm; the Audio Arts and Acoustics Department at Columbia College in Chicago; the GLI.TC/H Festival in Chicago, IL; Switched On Electronics in Austin, TX; Noise=Noise in London, UK; and Fuse Factory in Columus, OH.
