The workshop, which will focus on the artistic use of sensor-driven interfaces in the context of art, will be moderated by visual artist Sigrún Hardardóttir and composer Jesper Petersen, both of whom teach at the Iceland Academy of The Arts, a press release states.

The basic functionality of the Arduino open-source electronics prototyping platform will be used with special emphasis on sensors and the integration with visual programming environment Pd (PureData).

Participants will bring their own laptops and can download Pd-extended free from the web. No prior experience with programming is needed.

LornaLAB is a new forum for the creative use of technology. Its members include industrial designers, art theorists, computer scientists, AI researchers, music theorists and new media artists.

The workshop is free of charge and open to everyone.
