Soldering is Easy workshop report

5

Ter­ri­fic night yes­ter­day @ altlab!
The workshop star­ted with an intro to elec­tro­nics lea­ving the atten­dees anxi­ous to get down to sol­de­ring.
Des­pite that, everyone was focu­sing their atten­tion on what was being said.
Half an hour later the sol­de­ring irons were plug­ged in and the fun started.

Soldering is Easy!
Hands-on and having fun!

It took us a while, but prac­tice makes per­fect, and we’re now much clo­ser to ridi­cu­ling Jus­tin Bie­ber than we’ve ever been before!

You might have noti­ced what deri­ved from our Resi­dency @ Espaço do Tempo, a dozen pro­jects from seve­ral folks spread over the 3 labs explo­ring the robo­tic, the inte­rac­tive, the sen­so­rial, the tan­gi­ble, the gene­ra­tive, the audi­o­vi­sual, the aug­men­ted, the pro­vo­ca­tive, the per­for­ma­tive and a few other of all those dirty lit­tle words you so much secre­tly love hea­ring about. Don’t be shy now. Nothing wrong with get­ting a lit­tle tan­gi­ble now and again. ;)

We even par­ti­ci­pa­ted in a lit­tle exhi­bit last month at Pavi­lhão Atlân­tico to pre­sent these and a cou­ple other works. And now we’re back with more wea­pons of mass des­truc­tion. And now, this very wee­kend we’re mee­ting up again for some holi­day hac­king fol­lery at LCD to show some more of our pro­jects and do a few mini-sprints. Feel free to join us. Lock up your geeks, we’re coming for them!

Laser pro­jec­tion

As far as elec­tro­nics everything is almost good to go with some minor twe­aks, but I’m facing a giant pro­blem now. I  don’t have time to deve­lop soft­ware for this pet and I don’t want it to be delayed for much lon­ger than it alre­ady has been, so I’m reques­ting for kind hear­ted deve­lo­pers to step up and help me in this task.

Any help is wel­come ple­ase con­tact me to lj dot marques@fct dot unl dot pt (replace “dot” for “.”).

We also have a mini-site with bios of the authors and des­crip­ti­ons of the works, tem­po­ra­rily hos­ted here. Not only of the works pre­sent at the exhi­bi­tion but also a few others deve­lo­ped during the resi­dency that couldn’t be exhi­bi­ted by one rea­son or another. Check them out!

Big thanks are in order to everyone at O Espaço do Tempo for the oppor­tu­nity we had, and all the in loco sup­port to our needs, you rock. :)

2 days to go until the exhi­bit ope­ning of the Audi­en­cia Zero Labs resi­dency at O Espaço Do Tempo!

A few folks seem to be mis­sing in action. Mau­ri­cio is back with some news from Inte­rac­ti­vos to lend us a hand on pen­ding pro­jects. Mónica and Pedro are still wor­king on B-wind!. Mar­ga­rida wor­king on his robot Freddy. Vic­tor Silva rehe­ar­sing his The Last Words of Domi­nico. Vic­tor and Marco wor­king on Dis­car­da­ble Beauty. Gui­lherme finishing his Róbo­tica Cri­a­tiva works. And me finishing up Meta Gen Haiku. Cata­rina and Joel should also show up tomo­row with their Micro Dérive.

Web­site with more info on the pre­sen­ted pro­jects should go online soon. In the mean­time if you should show up on Mon­day the 12th July in Montemor-O-Novo for the exhi­bit. We will have 7 pro­jects ins­tal­led under exhi­bi­tion until the 31st July, and 2 live­acts pre­sen­ted on the exhi­bi­tion day 12th July.

In the mean­time we’ll leave you with some impor­tant t-shirt quote mate­rial we have recen­tly acqui­red:
“48 horas são 6 dias de tra­ba­lho, em tur­nos de 8 horas“
“Eu só faço pro­jec­tion map­ping quando estou bêbado“
“Não tens pin­cel para isso. Vai antes de rolo.“
“Que­res falar ao tele­fone? Fala aí! *slap*”
