WORKSHOP | 15/04/2010
Ryan Jordan D.i.Y Stroboscopic Goggles and Synth Building Workshop.

This workshop introduces the participant to D.i.Y hardware hacking and stroboscopic light. The workshop will focus on building simple hardware synths from 555 timer circuits and CMOS4093 chips. These electronic noise machines can also control lights and the workshop will focus specifically on stroboscopic light.

The participants will then build there own stroboscopic goggles, similar to those used in medical EEG tests, which also can be hooked directly into a sound system to create your own personal hallucinogenic flickering noise machine.

The workshop will also cover basic electronics theory, soldering, practical applications for using the electronics in art works and live performance, and a brief history of stroboscopic light and its artistic applications. The participant will keep everything they make during the workshop.

This workshop is ideal for beginners in hardware hacking and for those interested in stroboscopic light and sound/noise.

Participants must bring with them the following:

9v battery

a pair of glasses or goggles

2 inner tubes from toilet roll

soldering iron

Equipment provided:

555 timer circuit

cmos 4093

assorted capacitors
