As their complexity increases, the objects of technology that we use everyday become more and more mystifying to the average user. Most of us are able to competently operate our cellphones or computers, however much less are able to confidently explain how or why a given piece of technology works. This is the first in a series of five seminars, each guest presenter will be an arts practitioner who explores the social and artistic aspects of technology through their work.

Here, Kim Newall discusses Arduino’s controversial history and shares his experience working with this platform within his cross-disciplinary practice.
