Swedish Artist Jonas Pettersson is bringing his experimental 'Water Colour Pipe Organ' and remotely communicating Robotics to Australia.
Creatives will have 2 opportunities to Work with Jonas on various aspects of his Artistic Practice:
Workshop I - 25th August 2018 will be dedicated to exploring the ancient art of 'Cyanotype Printing' and other painting techniques to give your watercolour/print and/or photography work a new edge! We will also be showcasing on the big screen - Jonas' Studio in Hassela - Sweden ........... some of his experimental film and digital music work - during the week of his Art Residency!
Jonas will introduce you to using 'Water' as your developer and 'Sunlight' as your light source!
Workshop II - Tues/Wed - 28/29th August 2018 - A Workshop for New Media Students with a grasp of programming.
In particular Jonas will show how to make the best use of programming techniques such as SignalR, node.js & other programming methods to make components talk remotely - & servers, using triggers etc… he will detail the flow between web clients & Working with his ‘Watercolour Pipe Organ’ Jonas will with the help of students assemble, tune it and prepare for show and remote control.
Artists who book for the Workshop I - will be welcome to come as observers for the 2nd Workshop II - to see how the Watercolour Pipe Organ comes together and be part of the team to paint with the capability!Find out more »
What has Cyanotype Printing, Watercolour Pipe Organs and Remote Talking Robotics got in common – Workshop II
Who should check this out!
New Media Students – Interested in robotics and remote communication strategies – Jonas will share his work which includes the use of programming techniques such as SignalR, node.js and other programming methods to make components talk remotely – he will detail the flow between web clients and servers, using triggers and 3D printed parts.
The major work during the two day workshop will be putting all the components together, tune the pipes and see so everything is working.
Jonas is aiming to make at least 2-2.5 meters pipe - these will be made from art paper and fitted with the 3D printed parts - the 'Pipes' can be painted or Workshop participants can decide to leave them unpainted - however, this may be a challenge for our Workshop I - Artists to come back and help at this point!Find out more »
