Workshops & Talks
An important part of creating work is sharing that work with others. Presenting forces you to refelct on and distill your process. General audiences can also offer insights into your work that a designer never could.
The complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) logic family contains an array of integrated circuits that perform all the tasks necessary for rudimentary computation. These chips were originally designed for applications that require raw electronic processing power, but the speed at which they operate can be slowed and their binary processes repurposed for creative applications.
This workshop covered the functions of several chips from the CMOS family including the basic gates (AND, OR, XNOR, etc.), oscillators, frequency dividers, shift registers, and multiplexers. The demonstration included techniques for connecting the inputs and outputs of these chips to generate patterns for controlling software. Participants created projects using UART (Arduino serial), MIDI, and OSC protocols.
