Brewed in HotGlue
Wayang Kulit is the oldest theatre form of Indonesia and one of the most important theatre traditions of Southeast Asia. This piece was developed as an interactive artwork for educational museums and as a thought experiment on how tangible, culturally-specific interfaces can constitute instances of academic research outputs. We developed a Tangible User Interface (TUI) using open source hardware (Arduino microcontrollers and an array of sensors), together with a web platform (Node.js and http://socket.io) to show how culturally-coded objects are important for archiving performances.
