We are developing Aether to be flexible and user-friendly. Artworks and objects with an internet connection can be connected to the platform to send or receive data.
Each artwork connected to Aether will need a microcontroller with an internet connection. Adding a few lines of code from our library will allow the microcontroller to connect to our server.
From the Aether platform you will be able to see a list of connected artworks and choose which artwork you’d like to connect to.
Connected artworks are separated into senders and receivers. Senders gather data and send it to the platform. Receivers access the data from a Sender. Simple.
Each member will be free to interpret the data in whatever way they want and their artwork can take any form.
We will also be running an entry-level workshop programme to support the Aether platform.
