BioDynamic Art - Art Marries Electronics!

Interested in making Art that combines creativity and technnology? Art that causes movement and awareness in the viewer? What kind of feelings do you want to stimulate in someone, when theyʼre looking at your art? What do you want to express with it? Use this class to learn to combine your creativity with your technological knowhow.

For this workshop, we will be building simple logic circuits into the pieces, to bring more dynamic interaction to your artwork. They will be used to fire LEDʼs or maybe soundresponsive circuits, depending on interest. This class is for beginners as well as those who are advanced either as artists or in technology. The art will be simple - weʼll be creating mosaics, paintings or small plaster sculptures (no skills required!) - and the technology will also. LEDʼs, simple circuits, maybe some programmable chips. Itʼs more of an exploration about the frontier, where these two dynamic forms interact with each other. (Additional lab time may be available for those wishing to create more involved art pieces or add more sophisticated technology.)

About the Teacher: Steve Rabbon (aka “Oso Tama”) has had a lifelong interest in mechanical and creative art. He creates pieces that are inspired from meditation and life. And uses his long-time expertise from designing integrated circuits to add sound, light and a sense of dynamic movement to his interactive pieces. Steve worked for many years developing integrated circuits, then designing and developing signal processing and telemetry systems, and working on robotics.

    I'm really interested in this class, but can't make Sat. Will you be giving his class again?

    This sounds so great! Steve is talking about making mobiles with lights added, sculptures that are interactive, with light and sound, and a whole bunch of other interesting ideas!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
