Event Details

Fab Kids Series, winner of 2016 Chevron STEM Educator Award, is recommended for children ages 8+ and parents are encouraged to participate as well.

In this workshop students will understand how our brains process electrical signals and how we can interpret these signals with special sensors to display colors and patterns digitally. Guest teaching artist David Delgado will demo a visual light display he uses for interactive art installations, and give students the opportunity to manipulate and interact with the interface. Participants will then get a crash course in coding a programmable circuit board that will be able to control lights and sounds, and we will experiment in creating an interactive installation with participants newly obtained coding skills, painting with brainwaves, and motion capture technologies. 

Sinestésico is an audio-visual interactive installation founded by David Elias Delgado. Fusing technology with digital art, David configures a software program to produce colorful visual effects based on a subject’s interaction. Aptly named after a rare neurological condition called “Synesthesia”, where one sensory stimulus involuntarily triggers another, Sinestésico uses a camera to capture live video, which is fed through the software program, then broadcasted via projector. This allows for the interacting subject to create a unique work of art, triggered by their own movement and sound.

Thank you to Texas Commission on the Arts and City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department for sponsoring events at the intersection of art and technology.
