> TINT is excited to announce a new endeavour in collaborative co-exploration
> of media arts. Unleashed a weekend of workshops and artistic projects in
> progress that invite others to join. The event is kindly hosted by the
> Apiary Studios (458 Hackney Road, E2 9EG London) and will take place on the
> 25th and 26th of June.
> To get involved and join one of the projects send an e-mail stating your

. All projects are free to
> participate although places are limited!
> Saturday 25th of June (10:00 – ~19:00)
> **David Strang & Andy Prior: Mixing the City
> *Participants in the workshop are invited to create content for use in the
> bespoke Quicktime WebJay (QTWJ) environment, using field recording
> techniques and video capture within the surrounding area. This content will
> then be used by the participants within QTWJ to create a live performance of
> sound and visuals at the end of the day.
> *Deep Media Research: Bodies in Communication*
> Deep Media Research develops simple prototypes to explore the vast field of
> infra-verbal bodily communication. In our workshop we will explore how we
> can use sensors to measure signals of our body and actuators to make those
> signals perceivable by others. We’ll make use of simple electronics, the
> Arduino microcontroller, and some code and are looking for beginners and
> intermediates who want to be introduced into body sensing (galvanic skin
> response, pulse, …), experiment with actuators and/or help to develop the
> project further.

> *Dominick Allen: Optical Sound
> *Optical Sound will be a practical, hands on workshop building and exploring
> optical microphones (devices that turn fluctuations in light into sound) for
> use in field recordings, performances etc. Everybody attending the workshop
> will have the chance to build their own optical microphone which they can
> take away with them for a small donation. The workshop will be followed by
> an audio-visual performance to explore the possibilities of these
> microphones. Everybody is welcome and no previous experience of electronics
> is necessary
> *Madi Boyd: Performing Screen
> *This project in progress is to create a robotic puppet like screen which
> will interact with the film projected onto it in order to create an intense
> dialogue. The screen will be composed, eventually, of hundreds of small
> independently moving parts. The parts will be controlled by servos so that
> they move in all directions in an organic but choreographed formation. They
> will appear to react to and be sculpted by the film. This performative
> dialogue between the projection and the screen will extend into a tussle in
> their attempts to shape each other, creating a new dynamic form in the
> This project is at the concept/experimental stage and invite interested
> artist and technicians to partake researching several aspects needed to
> complete this work. These include: materials which will be able to move
> effectively, materials which reflect and absorb light in varying amounts,
> programming/controlling up to 80+ servo motors.
> *Stephen Fortune: Data Mining*
> My practice at present is bringing divination and data samplings into close
> proximity to illuminate how these practices belong to utterly different
> knowledge systems but both purport to order ones trajectory through reality.
> For this event I invite interested parties to join me to expand my research
> from tea leaf reading to scrying for which we will use Arduino based
> measuring instruments and data recording and mining techniques.
> Divination is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by
> way of a standardized process or ritual.
> Scrying (also called seeing or peeping) is a magic practice that involves
> seeing things psychically in a medium, usually for purposes of obtaining
> spiritual visions and less often for purposes of divination or
