Interview with Abigail Stiers and Alexander Gross: On technology, algorithms, DIY and inventing things

October 16, 2010

In May this year I had an opportunity to partake at the first regional Wearable Technology workshop at Digital Media Lab in Ljubljana (Slovenia), organized my MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art. The workshop was led by MFA intermedia students from the University of Maine (USA), Abigail Stiers and Alexander Gross.

Since, Abby and Alex were for last three months lecturers at the CIANT – International Centre for Art and New Technologies in Prague (Czech), it was really nice to talk about their own work, the perception of technology and DIY scenes in USA and Europe, and the generation gap between new media art and fine art. Oh, we talked a little bit about Arduino, too.

Time to move on and finish my covering from Device_art 3.009 with Croatian artists. Excuse me for small delay in my blogging, but last week I had an opportunity to partake on Wearable Technology Workshop led by Abigail Stiers and Alexander Gross in Ljubljana (Slovenia). I just didn’t want to miss this opportunity to learn more on Arduino, soft circuits and electronic textiles. I will blog about it separately during the following weeks…
