Sophi will tell the story of being handed 75 air solenoids and some other hardware totalling about $1000 for free. What else could there be to do, but buy a compressor and build an art piece?
Sophi will take the audience through the concept of the piece and talk about designing and building a work of art using solenoids, balloons and music.
She will also discuss some other recent projects, including one with Oculus Rift and possibly a snow machine.
This presentation will demystify the big components used in props and large installations.
Five things audience members will learn
- About hardware.
- About conceptualizing art installations.
- Oculus Rift ideas for adding external stimuli.
- About being playful when designing for physical audiences.
- Differences between designing for screens and for physical audiences.
