Physical Computing Workshop with Eva Sjuve

The workshop is aimed at artists and musicians who are interested in
physical interaction with the computer, a way to interact, by not using
the keyboard and the mouse. In the workshop we use a
microcontroller, BasicX-24, programming it using Basic language, and
use it as a tool for interaction with various kinds of sensors. The
workshop is basic, no programming or knowledge in electronics is
necessary, but preferred.

To attend the workshop is free, the participant has to pay for their own
travel and lodging to Bergen, Norway. The participants will be able to
keep their project from the workshop.

To participate or for more info send an email to:

And include a motivation to participate in the workshop.

The workshop is limited to 7 participants.

Eva Sjuve has been working with computer-based projects since the
80's, and is building and performing with physical interfaces. She has
been exhibiting in Europe, US, South America, Asia and Australia,
since mid 80's. Eva Sjuve studied microcontrollers at The Physics
Department at Lund University, Sweden, and later at The Interactive
Telecommunications Program at New York University. She holds a MA
in Art Theory and Master's studies in Drama/Theatre/Film, Lund
University, Sweden and a MPS at ITP, New York University. She also

Pure Data Workshop with Malte Steiner

Pure Data (PD) is a real-time graphical programming environment for
audio, video, and graphical processing, originally developed by Miller
Puckette. This workshop is aimed at beginners and will include
installation of PD/GEM, serial control from a microcontroller, building of
a basic sound patch and introduction to GEM (an OpenGL and video
extension for Pd)

Pure Data is a free software and can be used on Mac OSX, Linux,
Windows 32

Malte Steiner (Hamburg), media artist, programmer and developer. He
has been developing interactive art installations using PD, MAX/MSP as
well as projects for theater, web and mobile phones in Europe and in
Asia. Steiner is also an electronic musician with performances in
South America and Europe with his Elektronengehirn project. He has
been holding workshops and lectures in Germany, US and in the UK.
