Ash and Dom are Ludicrooms and they seek to transform spaces through technology and play.
In their wisdom and enthusiasm they thought it a grand idea to allow six or so artists and makers to tinker around with their digital wizardry and knowhow.
The project was called Random String.
I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen six and spent the majority of February messing around with makey makey’s, raspberry pi’s and servos. (No, I didn’t either till I met Ash & Dom!) We were all encouraged to contribute to a blog mapping our journeys.
Perhaps the most inspiring thing for me was learning how to record and manipulate sound generated from my musical pots. I even managed to set up a soundcloud and posted some very short and raw sonic experiments. Have a listen!
Having just tickled the surface of what’s possible I’d love to spend a period of total emersion exploring the myriad of posibilities of sound and clay – like thats really going to happen!
Random String culminated in a symposium held at the Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry on the 7th March 2014.
