През 1960 германски фотограф (Thomas Hoepker) прави снимка на своя позната – (Charlotte Dabney) . Барбара Крюгер използва снимката за създаване на произведение
“It’s a small world but not if you have to clean it.”
Фотографът съди Крюгер за нарушаване на авторски права, а жената от снимката съди Крюгер за навлизане в личната сфера (използване на снимка без съгласие на лицето).
Съдът в Ню Йорк предоставя на произведението защитата на Първата поправка като приема, че изкуството има „трансформиращ“ ефект. Защитено слово.
По отношение на личната неприкосновеност (right of publicity) решението отново е в полза на Крюгер.
Но съобщението в това произведение е толкова актуално.

Digital Making at Home is a program which encourages young people to code and share along with us, featuring weekly themed content, code-along videos, livestreams, and more!
This week, we’re exploring making art with code. Many young makers are no stranger to making art, especially the digital kind! This week we’re inviting them to bring their most colourful and imaginative ideas to life with code.
So this week for Digital Making at Home, let’s make some art!
Произведението е създадено по време на протестите на жените във връзка с прилагането на решението Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade, 410 US 113 (1973) е решение на Върховния съд на САЩ, в което Съдът постановява, че Конституцията на САЩ защитава свободата на бременната жена да избере аборт. През януари 1973 г. Върховният съд издава (7–2) решение, в което постановява, че четиринадесетата поправка на Конституцията на САЩ предвижда „право на неприкосновеност на личния живот“ u защитава правото на бременната жена да избира дали да направи аборт или не. Това право не е абсолютно и трябва да бъде балансирано спрямо защита на здравето на жените и защита на пренаталния живот.
Решението разделя обществото и активира движенията в защита на двете позиции. То е критикувано, наричат го съдебен активизъм и в следващи решения ВС на САЩ постепенно започва да се отдалечава от стандартите на Roe v. Wade. Тези процеси отразява и произведението на Барбара Крюгер.
И днес това съобщение е актуално на много нива.

Grab yourself a Raspberry Pi, a Makey Makey, and some copper pipes: it’s interactive wind chime time!
Perpetual Chimes is a set of augmented wind chimes that offer an escapist experience where your collaboration composes the soundscape. Since there is no wind indoors, the chimes require audience interaction to gently tap or waft them and encourage/nurture the hidden sounds within – triggering sounds as the chimes strike one another.
Normal wind chimes pale in comparison
I don’t like wind chimes. There, I said it. I also don’t like the ticking of the second hand of analogue clocks, and I think these two dislikes might be related. There’s probably a name for this type of dislike, but I’ll leave the Googling to you.
Sound designer Frazer Merrick’s interactive wind chimes may actually be the only wind chimes I can stand. And this is due, I believe, to the wonderful sounds they create when they touch, much more wonderful than regular wind chime sounds. And, obviously, because these wind chimes incorporate a Raspberry Pi 3.

Since the chimes make little acoustic noise, essentially they’re broken until you collaborate with them.

Sian Wheatcroft created an interactive story display to enable children to explore her picture book This Bear, That Bear. She explains the project, and her current work in teaching, in the newest issue of Hello World magazine, available now.
The task of promoting my first children’s picture book, This Bear, That Bear, was a daunting one. At the time, I wasn’t a teacher and the thought of standing in front of assembly halls and classrooms sounded terrifying. As well as reading the book to the children, I wanted to make my events interactive using physical computing, showing a creative side to coding and enabling a story to come to life in a different way than what the children would typically see, i.e. animated retellings.
Coming from a tech-loving family, I naturally gravitated towards the Raspberry Pi, and found out about Bare Conductive and their PiCap. I first envisaged using their conductive paint on the canvas, enabling users to touch the paint to interact with the piece. It would be some sort of scene from the book, bringing some of the characters to life. I soon scrapped that idea, as I discovered that simply using copper tape on the back of the canvas was conductive enough, which also allowed me to add colour to the piece.
I enlisted the help of my two sons (two and five at the time) — they gladly supplied their voices to some of the bears and, my personal favourite on the canvas, the ghost. The final design features characters from the book — when children touch certain areas of the canvas, they hear the voices of the characters.
Getting the project up and running went pretty smoothly. I do regret making the piece so large, though, as it proved difficult to transport across the country, especially on the busy London Underground!
Interactivity and props
The project added a whole other layer to the events I was taking part in. In schools, I would read the book and have props for the children to wear, allowing them to act out the book as I read aloud. The canvas then added further interaction, and it surprised me how excited the children were about it. They were also really curious and wanted to know how it worked. I enjoyed showing them the back of the canvas with all its copper tape and crocodile clips. They were amazed by the fact it was all run on the Raspberry Pi — such a tiny computer!
Fast-forward a few years, and I now find myself in the classroom full-time as a newly qualified teacher. The canvas has recently moved out of the classroom cupboard into my newly developed makerspace, in the hope of a future project being born.
I teach in Year 3, so coding in Python or using the command line on Raspbian may be a little beyond my students. However, I have a keen interest in project-based learning and am hoping to incorporate a host of cross-curricular activities with my students involving the canvas.
I hope to instil a love for digital making in my students and, in turn, show senior leaders what can be done with such equipment and projects.
A literacy project
This work really lends itself to a literacy project that other educators could try. Perhaps you’re reading a picture book or a more text-based piece: why not get the students to design the canvas using characters from the story? The project would also work equally well with foundation subjects like History or Science. Children could gather information onto the canvas, explaining how something works or how something happened. The age of the children would influence the level of involvement they had in the rest of the project’s creation. The back end could be pre-made — older children could help with the copper tape and wiring, while younger children could stop at the design process.
Part of the project is getting the children to create sounds to go with their design, enabling deeper thinking about a story or topic.
It’s about a collaborative process with the teacher and students, followed by the sharing of their creation with the broader school community.

Sometimes we come across a project that just scores a perfect 10 on all fronts. This is one of them: an art installation using Raspberry Pi that has something interesting to say, does it elegantly, and is implemented beautifully (nothing presses our buttons like a make that’s got a professionally glossy finish like this).
Quick Fix is a vending machine (and art installation) that sells social media likes and followers. Drop in a coin, enter your social media account name, and an army of fake accounts will like or follow you. I’ll leave the social commentary to you. Here’s a video from the maker, Dries Depoorter:
Quick Fix in an interactive installation by Dries Depoorter. The artwork makes it possible to buy followers or likes in just a few seconds. For a few euros you already have 200 of likes on Instagram. “Quick Fix “is easy to use. Choose your product, pay and fill in your social media username.
There’s a Raspberry Pi 3B+ in there, along with an Arduino, powering a coin acceptor and some I2C LCD screens. Then there’s a stainless steel heavy-duty keyboard, which we’re lusting after (a spot of Googling unearthed this, which appears to be the same thing, if you’re in the market for a panel-mounted beast of a keyboard).
This piece was commissioned by Pixelache, a cultural association from Helsinki, whose work looks absolutely fascinating if you’ve got a few minutes to browse. Thanks to them and to Dries Depoorter — I have a feeling this won’t be the last of his projects we’re going to feature here.

LEDs are awesome
Basically, LEDs are components that convert electrical power into light. Connect them to a power source (with some form of current limiter) in the right orientation, and they’ll glow.
Each LED has a single colour. Fortunately, manufacturers can pack three LEDs (red, green, and blue) into a single component, and varying the power to each LED-within-an-LED produces a wide range of hues. However, by itself, this type of colourful LED is a little tricky to control: each requires three inputs, so a simple 10×10 matrix would require 300 inputs. But there’s a particular trick electronics manufacturers have that make RGB LEDs easy to use: making the LEDs addressable!
Addressable LEDs have microcontrollers built into them. These aren’t powerful, programmable microcontrollers, they’re just able to handle a simple communications protocol. There are quite a few different types of addressable LEDs, but two are most popular with makers: WS2812 (often called NeoPixels) and APA102 (often called DotStars). Both are widely available from maker stores and direct-from-China websites. NeoPixels use a single data line, while DotStars use a signal and a clock line. Both, however, are chainable. This means that you connect one (for NeoPixels) or two (for DotStars) pins of your microcontroller to the Data In connectors on the first LED, then the output of this LED to the input of the next, and so on.
Exactly how many LEDs you can chain together depends on a few different things, including the power of the microcontroller and the intended refresh rate. Often, though, the limiting factor for most hobbyists is the amount of electricity you need.
Which type to use
The big difference between NeoPixels and DotStars comes down to the speed of them. LEDs are made dimmer by turning them off and on very quickly. The proportion of the time they’re off, the dimmer they are. This is known as pulse-width modulation (PWM). The speed at which this blinking on and off can have implications for some makes, such as when the LEDs are moving quickly.
- Slowish refresh rate
- Slowish PWM rate
- More expensive
- Faster refresh rate
- Fast PWM rate
HackSpace magazine’s LED feature is just a whistle-stop guide to the basics of powering LEDs — it’s not a comprehensive guide to all things power-related. Once you go above a few amperes, you need to think about what you’re doing with power. Once you start to approach double figures, you need to make sure you know what you’re doing and, if you find yourself shopping for an industrial power supply, then you really need to make sure you know how to use it safely.

Playing sound through a Raspberry Pi is a simple enough process. But what if you want to play multiple sounds through multiple speakers at the same time? Lucky for us, Devon Bray figured out how to do it.
Artist’s Website: http://www.saradittrich.com/ Blog Post: http://www.esologic.com/multi-audio/ Ever wanted to have multiple different sound files playing on different output devices attached to a host computer? Say you’re writing a DJing application where you want one mix for headphones and one for the speakers.
Multiple audio files through multiple speakers
While working with artist Sara Dittrich on her These Blobs installation for Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Devon was faced with the challenge of playing “8 different mono sound files on 8 different loudspeakers”. Not an easy task, and one that most online tutorials simply do not cover.
Turning to the sounddevice Python library for help, Devon got to work designing the hardware and code for the project.
The job was to create some kind of box that could play eight different audio files at the same time on eight different unpowered speakers. New audio files had to be able to be loaded via a USB thumb drive, enabling the user to easily switch files without having to use any sort of UI. Everything also had to be under five inches tall and super easy to power on and off.
Devon’s build uses a 12v 10 amp power supply controlled via a DC/DC converter. This supply powers the Raspberry Pi 3B+ and four $15 audio amplifiers, which in turn control simple non-powered speakers designed for use in laptops. As the sound is only required in mono, the four amplifiers can provide two audio tracks each, each track using a channel usually reserved for left or right audio output.
A full breakdown of the project can be seen in the video above, with more information available on Devon’s website, including the link to the GitHub repo.
And you can see the final project in action too! Watch a video of Sara Dittrich’s installation below, and find more of her work on her website.

It looks like the Nintendo Wii Remote (Wiimote) has become a staple in many maker toolkits! Case in point: with the help of a Raspberry Pi and the
cwiid Python library, David Pride turned the popular piece of tech into a giant digital graffiti spraycan.
Using the Wiimote with a Raspberry Pi
While it’s no longer being updated and supported, the cwiid library is still a handy resource for creators who want to integrate the Wiimote with their Raspberry Pi.
Over the years, makers have used the Wiimote to control robots, musical instruments, and skateboards; the accessibility of the library plus the low cost and availability of the remote make using this tool a piece of cake…or pie, in this instance.
Using aWiimote, a Wii Sensor Bar, and a large display, David Pride hacked his way to digital artistry wonderment and enabled attendees of the Open University Knowledge Makers event to try their hand at wireless drawing. It’s kinda awesome.
OK, it’s all kinds of awesome. We really like it.
Digital graffiti ingredients
To construct David’s digital graffiti setup, you’ll need:
- A Raspberry Pi
- A Nintendo Wii Remote and a Wii Sensor Bar
- A power supply and DC/DC power converter
- A large display, e.g. a TV or projector screen
- A 30mm × 30mm mirror and this 3D-printed holder
Putting it all together
David provides the step-by-step instructions for setting up the Wiimote and Raspberry Pi on his website, including a link to the GitHub repository with the complete project code. The gist of the build process is as follows:
After installing the cwiid library on the Raspberry Pi, David connected the Pi to the Wiimote via Bluetooth. And after some digging into the onboard libraries of the remote itself, he was able to access the infrared technology that lets the remote talk to the Sensor Bar.
The 3D-printed holder with which David augmented the Wiimote lets the user hold the remote upright like a spray can, while the integrated mirror reflects the IR rays so the Sensor Bar can detect them.
The Sensor Bar perceives the movement of the Wiimote, and this data is used to turn the user’s physical actions into works of art on screen. Neat!
If you’ve used the Nintendo Wiimote for your Raspberry Pi projects, let us know. And, speaking of the Wii, has anyone hacked their Balance Board with a Pi?
On a completely unrelated note…

На 25 ноември в галерия Структура беше открит Пети фестивал-лаборатория NEDRAma International, като тази година темата на фестивала е Медии и свобода на избора.
Фестивалът започна с Елхата у Иванови, съвместна творческа акция на театър “Реплика”, режисьора Javor Gardev / Явор Гърдев и визуалния артист Teodora Simova. Според анонса “тази творческа акция използва за своя основа едноименния драматургичен опус на А. Введенски — кратък протоабсурдистки текст, писан в края на 30-те години на XX век”, преводът е на Георги Рупчев и е публикуван преди време в Ах, Мария. Введенски заедно с Хармс е представител на ОБЭРИУ (Объединение Реального Искусства), пред нас е обэриутска драматургия.
Сюжетът: става дума за престъпление и наказание, за Явор Гърдев това е углавно действо. Зрителите са оградени с характерните за местопрестъпление полицейски ленти – това е местопрестъпление: в навечерието на Рождество, докато родителите са на театър, бавачката убива едно от децата с брадва, след което е арестувана и осъдена на смърт. Нейният годеник с приятели идва от гората с коледна елха, родителите също се връщат – и всички умират.
Елхата у Иванови не е разказ за Иванови, такива герои няма. Децата в пиесата са от 1 до 82 години, действието се развива в един ден, но има време за цял съдебен процес, а на финала става ясно, че за времето на действието дървосекачът Фьодор е научил латински и започва да го преподава в училище.
Времето, смъртта и Бог са централни теми за Введенски. Двамата с Хармс работят върху спектакъл Моя мама вся в часах, Елхата у Иванови също е в часах, а по-късно в поезията си (Кругом возможно Бог) Введенски казва :
Вбегает мёртвый господин
и молча удаляет время.
И пак там – за съперничеството на смъртта и времето:
Мне всё чаще и чащекажется странным,что время еще движется,что оно еще дышит.Неужели время сильнее смерти.
Елхата у Иванови е за Рождество, но Рождеството в пиесата е крайно условно, а рождествената песничка е особена:
оно круглее всех!
Отново след Квартет Явор Гърдев включва медията в разказа – за изграждане на цялата пред-Рождественска условност. Паралелно с актьорската игра на голям екран изображения рамкират или позиционират действието. Изображенията се сменят бързо, разказите са паралелни, дори брадвите в разказите са паралелни – за момиченцето и за елхичката – човек едва смогва да следи посланията, трябва време да разбереш какво виждаш, а разказите се застигат и допълват, не е забравен и Джон Ленън –
God is a concept
By which we measure
I’ll say it again
God is a concept
By which we measure
Too late to die young
Петя Перов. Така ми се иска да умра. Просто страст. Умирам. Умирам. А така, умрях.
Нина Серова. И аз. Ах елхичке, елхичке. Ах елхичке, елхичке. Ах елхичке. Е, това е всичко. Умрях.
Пузирьов-баща. И те също умряха. Разправят, че дърварят Фьодор се изучил и станал учител по латински език. Какво става с мене. Как ми прескочи сърцето. Нищо не виждам. Умирам.
Пузирьова-майка. Какви ги приказваш. Ето виждаш ли, човек простонароден, а постигна своето. Боже, колко тъжна ни излезе елхата. (Пада и умира).
