May 9th 2PM: Horror Vacui - careful experimentation with monitor
cathode ray tubes [with Jo FRGMNT Grys]

This workshop is concerned with the re-use of VGA/CRT monitors as
experimental devices. It covers basic considerations of electronic
vacuum technology, particle acceleration, de- & re-construction
praising the empty space. Danger, sparks & entertainment!

Practical experiments will be performed including VGA signal
generation, interference, signal injection, modification, graphical
animation without computer.

Participants are free to bring:

- old VGA monitors
- Arduino or equivalents with arduino 0012 installed (0015 produces some jitter due to
  optimisations) (http://www.arduino.cc)
- GNU/Linux, Mac OS, Windows 
- cut off VGA cables.

Additional monitors, equipment and Arduino-equivalents will be available.

Printed documentation/sourcecode will be delivered

Jo Grys (aka FRGMNT) is a lowtech/hitech noise scientist who lives & works in
Berlin. http://tob.de.vu

Fee: 10 euros (all materials and food!)

Please email m at 1010.co.uk to reserve a place (strictly limited)



Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
