So I've been messing around with a gadget called an Arduino for a while now, in the hope that I can learn about the word of physical electronics, or hacking. Perfect kit for the noodler. It's early days, but I've managed to incorporate a certain amount of interactivity into my illustrations – but there's loads more to explore. My first experiment was an Interactive Nicholas Cage. Based on the ambient noise levels, he would become more agitated (demonstrated with the use of LED eyeballs). Things have advanced since then, with my first foray into capacitive sensing, or touch-sensitive activity. Also using the sister-software –Processing, to translate physical inputs into digital visualisation.
