Arduino for Artists by Matthew McClain

A photograph of my scenic design of Spring Awakening appears in Arduino for Artists as an example of practical and artistic use for Arduino technology. Click on the link below to find the book online.

Arduino for Artists is a guide for amateur and professional artists interested in using the Arduino microcontroller platform to create dynamic and interactive works of art. While most how-to books approach Arduino and electronics from a scientific and engineering perspective, Arduino for Artists is designed for creatives who want to use technology as a tool for artistic expression instead. In this book, you'll learn about programming Arduino microcontrollers and connecting them to electronic components to create art. You'll learn to do things like create kinetic art displays using motors, program individually addressable LED light strips to create complex and mesmerizing light displays, and add sensors to your art pieces, allowing them to respond dynamically to input from their viewers.
