I have an UNRVL related blog (which should get into a feed somehow…)
In the summer of 2019, I did a residency in Berlin with StudioHILO, working on the software for their digital spinning machine. It uses some of the same technologies as 3D printers (arduino, steppers, etc.). I hope to build one for MICA.
Dan Conrad (home/baker/wikipedia) has several pieces up at Red Emmas. I assist him with his performance machine, the Chromacord, and his next generation technology for the light-paintings. I have nothing to do with his weird noise performances.
Areas of Interest and Expertise
- Way too many years of programming and “computer stuff”.
- If it can give a syntax-error, I’ve done it or can figure it out.
- I can do linux stuff.
- And many database stuff.
- And communication protocol stuff.
- And more stuff.
- The blinky lights: Arduino, Raspberry PI, sensors, effectors, (very) basic electronics.
- Blinky-lights should be easier. I keep looking for a better way.
- Soldering, wiring, connectors.
- Moderate mechanical engineering.
- Woodshop tools.
- Bicycle maintenance.
When I assist with code, I put it on github. I also have some libraries for Arduino:
- Basic non-blocking timer functionality for Arduino
- perceptually even LED fader
- Misc, but especially a tool for capacitance-touch
But, using Python to program Arduinos is certainly better if you aren’t a c++ expert, and almost no-one is. I used to be, but I got better. Adafruit has a line of Python enabled Arduinos.
- How can non-programmers use the Arduino?
- What can we use as “muscles” for our devices?
