Hej, my name is Lucas.

I craft all sorts of visual stuff with passionate people who love what they do. Like me. I feel especially comfortable creating for screens, but I’m driven to explore, learn and experiment across all kind of media. Basically I’m simply obsessed with form and function, texture and material.

This is my personal blog. For more information about why I started it and
what content to expect from future articles, check out my very first post.

Enjoy! 🖖

Learning Arduino /pt.1

I’ve wanted to tinker with an microcontroller since I first heard of it during my studies back in the days, but I was always missing a specific idea I would consider worth pursuing. Up to now. Inspired by the Bachelor Thesis from my colleague Tobias Wolf I finally got some rough ideas and a potential use case I want to test out.

I love the idea to experiment with electrophysiological data. For one thing, I’ve never done anything with this type of data before and secondly, I really dig the idea to use such an extremely raw and natural input together with some tech for something ‘artistic’, so I gathered all the necessary hardware I need to start crafting. At its core:

  • an Arduino Uno Rev.3
  • an Elegoo Electronic Fun Kit I bought for the Breadboard, the cables, the LEDs and all the other bits
  • an Olimex Shield-EKG-EMG to convert incoming electrophysiological signals for the Arduino
  • a basic EKG-EMG-cable with some matching GEL electrodes to pick up electrophysiological signals

That’s it for the kick-off already. I’ll keep you updated on my progress, more details on what I have planned down the road with my Arduino will probably follow soon.
