Seeing and Hearing Patterns in Sound
Saturday, June 29
2 — 4:30 p.m.

How do sound vibrations behave? How do our brains make sense of them? What would they look like if we could see them? In this workshop, we will conduct experiments about sound using speakers, instruments, strobe lights, cornstarch, salt and other household items. Topics we will explore include: how we can create visualizations of sound vibrations, how these vibrations combine to produce harmony, how the size of the human body affects our perception of sound and the abilities of humans and other animals to locate sounds in the environment. Instructor: Laura Steenberge. Workshop is limited to 15 participants.

Electric Bodies
Sunday, June 30
2 — 5:00 p.m.

Explore the electrical characteristics of the human body while learning about basic principles of electronics. Organized around a series of collaborative activities and brief lectures, participants will learn to construct simple tools that allow them to productively interface with the human form in order to observe, unearth and discover the current flowing through our bodies. No prior knowledge of electronics is required. Instructor: Casey Anderson. Workshop is limited to 15 participants.
