Murray Royston-Ward – Exploring Peter Blasser’s Paper Circuits
Researching DIY electronics within improvised music practice, I have been building and reverse engineering Peter Blasser’s (Ciat-Lonbarde) paper circuits. Very much in-progress, this work is beginning to make connections with drawing and writing, which I am looking forward to sharing.
- Zoyander Street – tactile textile interactive portraits
Zoyander will talk about the interactive portraits of transgender people that they have been creating, and the textile installation they are going to work on at the Space Studios Art + Tech residency this spring.
- Alex McLean – The Live Loom
Explaining and demoing my handmade, warp-weighted handloom, with thread heddles controlled via an array of solenoids by a strange live coding environment, that lets you explore the abstract layers of pattern.
plus plus OPENDORK.. If you have a fledgling project you’d like to get feedback on, a dorky event on the horizon, or something else strange and involving electricity you’d like to talk about for 5 minutes or so, then let us know at the start of the event.
