Embedded Art System

The Embedded Art System is a a multi visual modular system based on the Raspberry Pi. It is free open source.

This platform gives the possibility to combine quite a lot of independent devices to create a more powerful system than most single computers can provide. Open Source and Open Hardware gives the possibility to access all resources of the used embedded systems, to build a network with full control at the same time.

It is possible to control simultaneously up to 255 independent embedded platforms and keep the costs low by using the cheap mini computer Raspberry Pi. Each individual Raspberry Pi runs a python program that controls the Omxplayer, the Raspicam, Open GL objects and a Paper-Duino-Pi Board with all its analog inputs and outputs. This Python program can be controlled with the Open Sound Control protocol. All embedded systems in the network are connected via Ethernet for exchanging OSC messages.

In the workshop Malte Steiner and Wolfgang Spahn will show the basic functions of the Embedded Art System and how to control it via OSC.
