Dinosaurs and a Raspberry Pi

One of the Isle of Wight’s most popular attractions – a horde of animatronic dinosaurs! had a makeover last week (10th- 11th October) with a Raspberry Pi. This video is a general overview of how the two day event went.

Staff at Blackgang Chine, (where the dinosaurs roam around) were instructed by Lucy Rogers, and Neil Ford on how to hack the electronics the Dinosaurs came with using a Raspberry Pi. Taking inspiration from staff member Mark Butler who had already successfully got the T-Rex working on a Pi, a group of enthusiastic would-be hackers sat around and learned how to use Node Red for the code running it on a Raspberry Pi.

MzTEK and Guerilla Science: Hacked Human Orchestra

MzTEK joined forces with Guerrilla Science, Shauna Concannon (PhD Media Arts and Technology Engineer) and artists Kobakant to design wearable instruments. In a weekend workshop, women spent a day reproducing  electronic instruments and sonic soft-circuits to produce the most amazing Hacked Human Orchestra EVER!
I made this video as part of my Artist In Residence position at The Centre for Creative Collaboration on June 30th 2012. You can see this video on Guerrilla Science’s website here.

Open Plaques

As an Artist In Residence at Centre for Creative Collaboration it is my job to document activities around the centre. Open Plaques was one such group that came to the centre.  Open Plaques is a community-based project begun in 2009 which documents, catalogs and promotes commemorative plaques installed on buildings and other public landmarks in the UK and beyond with the aim of making its website and database these historical markers.

Home Camp 4 “Hack the House”

Homecamp brings together members of the technical community interested in using open systems and low cost, often re-purposed hardware to bring around a positive change in the way we use energy and appliances around the home. Homecamp 4 brought those  working with technology, whether software, hardware or web based applications to meet at an informal “unconference” held at C4CC to offer presentations, workshops, mash-ups and hack sessions with the aim of sharing information and furthering the development of the open energy community. Of the four presentations that day we hear from Ken Boak – inventor of Nanode.
