Physical Computing Workshop
Workshop DVTG February 2007 (Groups)
Intention: Course participants learn to handle different input and output possibilities of the computer using Max/MSP and electronics. In the workshop the participants examine, in which way computers can communicate with each other in a creative way, without connecting them physically to a network. It is not about to find the best way for communication, but to find interesting an playful possibles how interaction can be accomplished.
Workshop task: Create an interesting chain response between the group computers. Every group must at least create one input and output plus an interesting processing of it, that in the end a chain response between all computers can be made.
