Slattery's New Brain

slatteryledb

Work continues on a replacement brain for Slattery's Lamp, now permanently resident at the >>Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. Slattery's original brain was built using a blue-and-white G3 Macintosh which was second-hand back in 2004, and eventually stopped working a few months ago. The technology of sensors and embedded systems has moved on a lot since then, so a totally >>Arduino-based solution is now feasible. Slattery's new mind (hosted in C++) will be roughly as complex as the old one (in MaxMSP), but without the indefinitely big persistent memory, and hence unable to effectively "dream".

Ironically, given that Arduinos are ideally suited to sensor-based artworks, IMMA have commissioned a non-responsive "port" of the Slattery system. Hopefully, the lamp can be equipped with some senses at a future date.
