The exhibition runs until 16 September 2018.
•– Making a Drawing Robot from Scratch – free workshop
I will run a workshop for teachers and artists in the Waterfront Arts Centre, Newport, Wales on September 28th. Participants will make a crude drawing robot with a switch and a motor and self-destructive tendencies, then learn to program a Microbit so as to add a funny face to the drawbot.
Aimed at beginners, this workshop is free and you get to go home with your bot and your Microbit! Only 12 seats, first come first served.
•– Kikk Festival
I will present a lecture for the forthcoming Kikk Festival in Namur, Belgium, running from 1st to 4th November. “KIKK is an international festival of digital and creative cultures. Its interest lies in the artistic and economic implications of new technologies.” It has been running since 2011, presenting a mix of lectures, live events and installations. This year the theme is Species and Beyond. I will talk about machinic life and mudpies (en Français).
