In this intensive workshop Michal Mitro will introduce visual artists to the world of interactivity. Together you will (briefly) look at the history of interactive art and use of interactivity in visual and time-based arts followed by an exploration of several strategies on how to approach interactivity from both a conceptual and technological perspective. Participants will be guided through a hands-on project that directly demonstrates and teaches how simple interactive elements can be embedded into an artwork to create a meaningful piece.

Following on, participating artists will be introduced to the basics of simple analog electronics in order to directly utilise them in the project. All parts of the circuit will be connected together (no soldering required), to Arduino, and to LEDs embeded in grown borax crystals at which point ultrasonic proximity sensors will be introduced to create an interactive environment.

Michal Mitro (1989, Slovakia) is conceptual artist, composer and performer working across wide field of media. Coming from Social Sciences background he aims to doubt and discuss the status quo of the “naturally given”, “normal”, and “traditionally right”. He focuses his attention on nuances of every day life that, granted their ordinariness and omnipresence, cease to attract any interest and critical thought and are widely but silently accepted. He, too, strives to diminish and ultimately defy the border between audience and artist/composer, to redefine the art making process and to work towards more inclusive, more accessible and more public art.
Michal Mitro has been educating himself on various fields of art since 2010. After he graduated from Psychology and Sociology at MUNI (CZE) in 2013, he went on to study Sculpture and Sonic arts at UTAS, (AUS) and later Gamelan (traditional Indonesian music) at ISI Yogyakarta (IDN). Currently he’s studying Multimedia-Composition at JAMU (CZE).
