Text of Internet-enabling interactivity for artists, musicians, and designers

  • Internet-enabling interactivityfor artists, musicians, and designers

  • Computer-coordinated ArtChanges in response to environment or user inputIs electrical/electronic, but often with elements of traditional mediaMay output multimedia, movement, environmental changesEmbodies the artists intentions in its physical/media structure and in a computer program.

  • The situation pre-EZ I/OCustom, engineered solutions are the rule for interactive worksArtists must seek engineering assistanceStruggle with technology stymies creativity

  • A first stepWhile at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rodemer and Csikszentmihalyi develop this inexpensive interface boardResult: an explosion of student work

  • EZ I/OOnce at the University of Michigan, Rodemer receives an OVPR grant to develop the first EZ I/O boardThe EZ I/O is adopted worldwide by artists, art schools, musicians, designers, museums.

  • What the EZ I/O enabled

  • Aging TechnologyRS-232 serial communication superseded by USB, EthernetThe World-Wide-WebSpeed deficitNumber of inputs, outputsVersatilityTelepresence

  • The New EZ I/OInternet-enabling EZ I/OTelematic programming of I/OUbiquitous presence of artMore universal access via the Web

  • The New EZ I/OSplitting the EZ I/O into a two chip solutionI/O ChipInternet InterfaceFast Inter-ChipCommunicationReal World I/O

    Internet

  • Adding More I/O Using Larger PIC Microcontroller

  • New EZ I/O DemoDallas Semiconductors TINI Board

  • Current IssuesSuch web-enabled input/output is in its infancyInternet Latency (keeping ping time down)

  • Future WorkOur solution should be useful for 3-5 yearsLegacy I/O - maintaining the serial interfaceWireless Networking (802.11b) = enables ubiquityCreate standard Web I/OAffordable for artists and students (>$200)
