High Five is a workshop to explore celebration over a distance
(Matthew Karau, Cindy Jeffers, Stefan Agamanolis)
People often "high five" each other to communicate mutual satisfaction or congratulations, but gestures like this aren't possible if you are far away from your fellow celebrators. High Five is a multi-day electronics and design workshop in which attendees build physical networked computer interfaces for expressing celebration over a distance.
In the High Five workshop, participants explore how to express celebration over a distance by creating novel inputs and outputs that connect to each other over the Internet. In addition to skills for building basic electronic circuits with a variety of sensors and actuators, the workshop emphasizes conceiving and implementing interface designs for celebration that are personally meaningful. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants connect their interfaces together and demonstrate them to an audience. In a second High Five workshop held in Madeira, participants worked on more celebratory gestures such as squeezing hands, making puppets dance, and blowing out birthday candles over a distance
