Silkscreening, FSR Sensors and Processing
8 February 2014, 13:00 - 18:00
WORKSHOP GIVEN BY ALICE JARRY
In the context of the winter exhibit TRAILMIX
During this workshop, participants will first be introduced to the installation V2Récurrences and will be invited to experiment with silkscreen printing techniques with thermochromic inks in order to understand the functions of the physical components of the installation (sensors, Arduino, conductive fabrics). During the second part of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to recontextualize objects from daily life using FSR (Force Sensing Resistors) sensors and Arduino, with the objective of finding out how such data can be utilized within the physical environment.
Alice Jarry (Montreal, QC) trained in Design and Computation Arts and holds a Masters degree in Visual and Media arts from UQAM. She teaches at Concordia University. With a background in print media, today, her practice has expanded to include installation and digital art. She is interested in transformative movement and the exchange between physical and digital space. Her site specific installation work emerges from a process of hybrid materiality. She has shown in diverse exhibition spaces across Canada and the United States.
