Raspberry Pi Art Contest v2.0

pi More art less pie.

The Digital Media Arts Department announces the 2nd Iteration of the Raspberry Pi Art Contest.

Make an art project with the new version of the Raspberry Pi computer: Video installation, audio art, interface art, non-games, physical computing, you-name-it…
