Drink & DrawBots

July 19, 2017
7:30pm
$20 suggested donation

Join us for a night of drinking and creating machines 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 drawbot-making! All levels of experience with electronics, drawing, and drinking are welcome (21+ for alcohol). Supplies will be provided by us. All donations support free and low-cost programming at Open Source!

This event will be led by Eric Wood. Eric is a front end engineer, a tinkerer and displaced Austinite. Sometimes he makes music even, but really he just wants to build cool things.

This event is inspired by our BitBots after school program. Open Source Gallery 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. At Drink & DrawBots, we create generative art (created with the use of an automonous system) by created DrawBots that can often function as sculptures in their own right.
