Drink & DrawBots
Jul 8, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $20
How do you spice up the tried and true Drink and Draw?
You throw in some electronics!
Join us for a night of drinking and creating machines using littleBits that draw and paint. Successfully make a DrawBot art-generating machine and your hands will be free for more–you guessed it–drinking!
$20 suggested donation will get you unlimited drinks and bots.
All levels of experience with electronics, drawing, and drinking are welcome (21+ for alcohol). Art supplies and littleBits will be provided by us.
Open Source has taught BitBots workshops in multiple schools, the MoMA, The Cooper Hewitt Design Center, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, and at a TEDxYouth Day event at the Brooklyn Museum. It is a STEAM initiative that invites students to innovate, prototype, iterate, design and incorporate new technology with other materials to make something that does something. We use littleBits, simple electronic modules, each with specific functions, which can be snapped together with magnets to create large and elaborate circuits for prototyping and play. Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system.
