Description (EN)

What makes water work? How do we work with water? This 3-day workshop will introduce basic concepts and techniques for designing and building interactive water systems. Conceived as a companion component to the MediaArchitecture projektmodul Wasserinteraktionen im Goethepark, students will work in groups of 2-3 people and learn simple methods for sensing properties of fluids and controlling their ebb and flow. Beginning with an overview of prior art in the field of interactive water works, the workshop will proceed through short, hands-on activities in the lab followed by field work in the river Ilm (weather permitting). The workshop will culminate with short presentations of group experiments produced over the course of the three days.
