看來我們距離 Sci-fi 的世界除了 2001 之外,2019 是個關鍵詞。不管是《阿基拉》的島鐵雄,還是《銀翼殺手》的殺手們,半人半機的生命體在介面都充滿無限想像。工作坊 “AKIRA” 以阿基拉的超常神秘力量作為藍圖,思考人機介面的可能,用 low-fi 方法把身體成為操作介面,但創造的不是武器,而是樂器。工作坊將使用由Dimension Plus 開發、以Arduino為基礎的 STEAM 套件- 一套方便入門者/藝術家/設計師創作電子藝術的套件。

Title for Group D: AKIRA

Short description for Group D:

“The year 2019 saw Japan being plagued by political corruption and crime and even more turbulent was the reconstructed ‘New Tokyo’.” — Akira

“In Los Angeles, November 2019, a retired police officer Rick Dyke is intercepted by a government official Goff and taken to see the old chief Brian. As a ‘blade runner’, Dyke’s job is to hunt down the cyborgs and ‘decommission’ them.” — The Blade Runner

Other than “2001”, “2019” is a keyword when it comes to describing the distance between now and the sci-fi world.

Be it Tetsuo Shima in Akira, or the killers in the Blade Runner, the interface with half-human and half-machine lives has always been full of imagination.The workshop “AKIRA” uses Akira‘s superhuman abilities as a blueprint to explore the possibilities of the human-machine interface. Participants will be using low-fi music to turn their bodies into operating interfaces, but they will not be creating weapons but musical instruments. 

The workshop will use Arduino-based STEAM set developed by Dimension Plus. It is a set especially designed for beginners/artists/designers to create digital art.
