REGISTER FOR INDIVIDUAL WEEKS
Most art doesn't ask you to do anything but sit still and look at it, watch it or read it, but this week we'll create interactive art projects that ask our viewer to participate, take AGENCY and become an explorer, detective, co-creator, or even the hero of the story.
Every day we use tools to carry out a particular function: hammers strike nails, spatulas flip pancakes, watches tell the time, brushes apply paint. This week, we won’t just be using tools to make our projects, we’ll be making the tools to make our projects!
Since the invention of fire, humans have harnessed the power of heat to transform materials and make stuff. We'll spend a week exploring this ancient idea, which led to the invention of ceramics and metalworking, continues to be relevant in contemporary technologies like lighting and laser cutting.
