Terrace Gallery / Dome Theatre / Education Lab + Phillips Collection

In partnership with the Washington Project for the Arts

Curated by Max Kazemzadeh, Assistant Professor of Media Art & Technology at Gallaudet University, and Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Assistant Professor at Parsons MFA in Design and Technology and Parsons School of Art, Design, History and Theory

Experimental Media 2012 explores recent developments in the field of art and technology through an exhibition of interactive installation works, a video screening program and a workshop series. While highlighting the creative potential of this technology, Experimental Media 2012 also seeks to explore the broader social and cultural implications of these rapid changes.

EXPERIMENTAL MEDIA 2012 EXHIBITION
D.O.L.L: DIWO OPNSRC LMFAO LHOOQ
On view April 12 - May 20 / Free / Terrace Gallery
Opening Reception: Thu April 12 / Free / 7-10pm

D.O.L.L: DIWO OPNSRC LMFAO LHOOQ, is an exhibition of experimental and interactive new media installations that highlights the creative use, re-use and mis-use of technology by contemporary artists. Exhibiting artists include Christian Benefiel, Jeff Chyatte, Eric Celarier, Blake Fall-Conroy, Mark Cooley, K. David Fong, Pete Froslie, Michelle Lisa Herman, Hiroshi Jacobs, Patrick Resing and Steven H. Silberg.

EXPERIMENTAL MEDIA 2012 VIDEO SCREENINGS
Thu April 19 / 6:30pm / Free / Phillips Collection  
Thu May 10 / 6:30pm / Free / Dome Theatre

The Experimental Media Video Screenings feature video work by local, national, and international artists that explore our contemporary landscape of data flow, perception and exchange between systems, whether human, gestural, cultural, chemical, political or virtual. Of the videos selected for Experimental Media 2012, one will be awarded the 2012 Kraft Prize for New Media, including a $750 cash prize.

EXPERIMENTAL MEDIA 2012 WORKSHOP SERIES
Organized in partnership with HacDC
Select weekends in May / Free / Education Lab

Workshop participation is free, but registration is required, email bmurphy@wpadc.org to register
This free hands-on workshop series is designed to introduce artists to the latest in open source and affordable technology being used for interactive installations and experimental new media. Workshops include:

Introduction to Basic Electronics – Building a Microcontroller Shield Saturday
Sat May 5 / 1-4pm / Free / Artisphere Education Lab

This workshop will speed through basic electronics with a focus on kit and prototype circuit building. Lab time will teach soldering with Sparkfun’s Danger Shield, which will be used in the subsequent Arduino and Processing workshops. Participants must provide their own materials and soldering tools. See page three for a complete list of materials.

Introduction to Arduino
Sun May 6 / 1-4pm / Free / Artisphere Education Lab

This workshop will introduce the Arduino, the most popular microcontroller board and programming environment in use by artists today. You will learn how to program this versatile device and you’ll write a program that uses the Danger Shield’s sensors and controls its LEDs. Participants must buy their own materials and bring a portable computer (or share one with a friend).

Introduction to Processing
Sun May 13 / 1-4pm / Free / Artisphere Education Lab

This workshop will introduce Processing, a software development platform created to teach artists how to write software (called “sketches”). You will learn how to use the built‐in development environment to create a sketch that generates animated particles and sound, and introduce how an Arduino can communicate with your processing sketch. Participants must buy their own materials and bring a portable computer (or share one with a friend).

Working with Arduino and Processing
Sun May 20 / 1-4pm / Free / Artisphere Education Lab

This workshop will expand on the previous three sessions. You’ll learn how to control the Processing sketch from Workshop 3 with the sensors and controls connected to your Arduino via the Danger Shield, and introduce how to control external devices connected to your Arduino with a Processing sketch. Participants must buy their own materials and bring a portable computer (or share one with a friend). See page three for a complete list of materials.
