Humans & Machines is the experimental laboratory in art and technology that María Castellanos and Alberto Valverde have designed and taught at auLAB 2017, at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial. Spain

The workshop has taken place during six work sessions, with students from 15 to 17 years old. It consisted in an aproaching to the intersection between art, science and technology trought the view of exampes of artists, scientific milestones etc.

Así mismo se realizaron una serie de experimentos, a lo largo de las diferentes sesiones basados en la práctica artística de los propios artistas, que permitiera a los alumnos experimentar y comprender el funcionamiento a la conceptualización que hay detrás de las obras.

Se introdujo el concepto de wearable, desde una perspectiva creativa, a través del desarrollo de un ejercicio DIY, que permitiera la experimentación con sensores y actuadores. Gracias a un Kit, basado en arduino que los artistas crearon para la docencia, los alumnos pudieron experimentar las posibilidades se los sensores y actuadores, para más tarde aplicarlas a un proyecto personal que llevaron a cabo durante las dos últimas sesiones del taller.
