<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Free sound art workshop is offered to children and everybody interested in creative use of technology and tinkering by artist Paula Vītola. During the workshop participants will create and record sounds with unique devices developted by the artist:

Inspiration for Light works comes from Alexander Graham Bell's invention – photophone (light telephone) that uses sunlight for transmitting sound in distance, and for converting sound signal into electric signal. This invention was the first wireless communication device – already in the 19th century.
"Waves - lights - shadows" is a series of artworks that applies this technology to get sound signal via light as a medium by using solar cells instead of a microphone.
1st device:
Sun Tracks
Sound is recored onto vynil plates using sun beam and a mirror. Mirror recieves vibrations of sound and reflects modulated sun beam onto solar cell thus allowing to record sounds near the mirror.
2nd device:
Shadow player
Shadow of the vibrating string is directed towards the solar cell which recieves the vibrations of the shadow and translates them into sound signals.

Additional to the workshop exhibition curators Anna Priedola and Ieva Vīksne will lead visitors through the exhibition "On the Clipboard" and explain the conceptual and technological background behind the new media art pieces.
