Hello World

08|09 Alt-w R&D Award - Benjamin Dembroski

5th August to 5th September 2009, Wed-Sun, 10am-6pm.
Inspace, Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Project2891 is a system of devices, called nodes, which are capable of communicating with each other via the internet or other electronic means. All nodes exist individually as seperate artworks and also form elements a larger, networked installation.

The whole system is designed to be as modular as possible, allowing others to work with as much or as little of the components as they wish.

A mildly parasitic installation of nodes inhabits the windows of Inspace. Visitors to the gallery (or interventions via project2891's switchboard) activate the installation, resulting in the swingarms swaying, glass being tapped, and sensors being tripped. As this happens, data is available on the switchboard reflecting the installation's state. As always, interaction, collaboration interferrence from other people or devices is welcomed.

17th January to 13th February 2009, 12-6pm.
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD

'hello world!' at CCA in Glasgow marked the official launch of project2891. It introduced the first batch of nodes which were made up of swingarms, sensors, fans, lamps and other fun bits, and methods used to control them. A series of free workshops and were offered explain how the system works and how it can be adapted by others use in their work. The workshops introduced how to use PureData, Arduino and other simple communication protocols create interactive, networked artworks.
