We are looking forward to starting a collaboration in the lead up to the Tate Exchange between CYLAND MediaArtsLab artists /engineers from St. Petersburg, UAL Digital Maker Collective members, and Hill Mead Primary School in Brixton (via http://londonc lc.org.uk/). The collaborative workshop with children will start January 19, 2017 at the Digital Maker Collective project space.
January 19, 2017
Digital Maker Collective Project Space, London.
10.15 – Meet and greet in the Digital Maker Collective project space.
10.30 – Start working on the Spark Fun and Arduino kits in twos or threes – each group will have one of us available to help. We will explore multiple blinking lights, servo motors and create music as code for buzzers.
We will look at videos made by the CYLAND team in St Petersburg about how to create various robotic functions with the Spark Fun kits and how these might relate to the ELECTROACTIVE GRID at TATE EXCHANGE.
Tate Exchange is an annual programme that brings together international artists, over 50 partners who work within and beyond the arts. It is a journey of discovery into the different ways that art has become active over the last 60 years and how artists have changed our understanding of what art can be and what it can do.
Since its founding in 2007, CYLAND MediaArtLab organizes workshops and master classes for children in St. Petersburg, New York, Berlin, Tokyo and other cities and countries.
