Dive into the world of wearable electronics and learn how to add and control full colour LEDs to your wardrobe, skateboards and installations! Learn how to solder, build electronic circuits, supply power to your project then customise your creation with code! You will walk away from the workshop with your own LED goggles to start your journey into the world of embedded electronics and coding!
Run by Nick Wishart, Nick adapts and repurposes existing and emerging domestic technologies and intuitive physical interfaces to create new audio/visual interfaces. Wishart uses embedded electronics, sensors, audio-visual production and circuit bending to create interactive devices such as the bio-luminescent jellyfish featured in ERTH’s Prehistoric Aquarium as well as an RGB-sensitive chameleon commissioned for Vivid at Taronga Zoo 2016.
Nick also creates unique electronic instruments using circuit bending techniques and is a founding member of the all toy band Toydeath. Formed in 1995, Toydeath have played throughout Australia with notable performances at the Sydney Biennale 2010, Big Day Out, The Great Escape as well as international tours to Europe, USA and Asia.
