Electricity for Progress Workshop: Samuel Cusumano on Bringing Together Music, Technology, and Plants

Thu, Feb 16, 2017 | 2:30 pm

Join us for a workshop with Samuel Cusumano, an “engineer for the arts” and part of Data Garden’s collective of musicians and sound engineers. Cusumano’s work, Electricity for Progress, involves connecting plants to synthesizers to create music, and he will lead participants through the construction of a Biodata Sonification Arduino Shield using solderless breadboard, jumper wires, and basic electronic components. This workshop is accessible to beginners and experienced circuit designers.

Registration is required at tinyurl.com/datagarden, and participants are encouraged to bring their laptops.

This program is part of the Libraries' Beyond the Page public programming series.

This program is part of our Seeing Stories: Visualizing Sustainable Citizenship series, co-curated by Temple Contemporary, Temple University’s Office of Sustainability, and Temple University Libraries, along with faculty and graduate students from the Tyler School of Art, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for the Cinematic and Performing Arts.
