Event description

Description

Oscillographic Art

Workshop Leaders: Andrew Duff and Alex Peverett (Sussex)

In the U.S. in the early 1950s, Ben F. Laposky used an oscilloscope and hand-made electronic circuits to create abstract art. He is credited with making the first computer graphics and as a pioneer of electronic art using analog circuits and a cathode ray tube oscilloscope.

This workshop will introduce and present a historic overview of Oscillographics and allow hands-on experience of a range of techniques made available through the combination of cheap and accessible ‘junked’ vintage oscilloscopes and a range of now accessible electronic circuits and ‘modules’ that have granted new access to an often forgotten medium.

If you have any questions about this workshop please email the series convenor, Ben Roberts, in the first instance: b.l.roberts@sussex.ac.uk
