Workshop Sensory Memory
& Persistence of Vision
Julien Maire is a French artist who lives and works in Berlin. A visual and performing artist, his work deconstructs and re-invents the technology of audiovisual media. He renews obsolete cinematic techniques and develops alternative interfaces to produce moving images. His research confronts immobility and movement, reality and fiction, and interrogates the notion of time and memory in the film image.Website: http://julienmaire.ideenshop.net/
This workshop will focus on sensory and digital
memories, emphasizing on the phenomenon of persistence of vision.
Two LED persistence of vision displays have been developed:
1. One device with a row of LED's that flash out columns of a message. When
the array of LED's is moved, the message can be read as if it were many LED's
wide, instead of a single row.
One will be mounted on a Frisbee and another one on an arrow.
The electronics is using a Arduino Nano, 16 superbright CMS LEDs, 2 NiMh rechargeable batteries.
2. The other device will include a single LED mounted on the tip of an arrow. The LED will blink according to a Morse message.
electronics is using a CMS PIC controller, small coin cell batteries,
and a custom made vibration sensor created with a ipiezo.
First test by running:
"Test Vitesse linéaire Choc"
"Veuillez éteindre la lumière en sortant"
"Etudes des vents contraires"
