Physical Computing Open LabsThursday October 2, 4:00pm-7:00pm RSVP
Sunday October 5, 12:00pm-3:00pm RSVP
Members of the Queer Art and Technology research group based at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, Miki Foster, Erica Kermani, and CultureHub’s S.O. O’Brien, invite artists and enthusiasts to participate in an open lab centered on Arduino and physical computing. Focusing on an in-process design for an upcoming interactive installation, QUAT members explore the use of micro-controllers in combination with large surface transducers and bone conductors. If you are working on your own Arduino or physical computing projects and want the opportunity to work in a more collaborative session or just want to get feedback on your project, come join us in the studio for these open work and skill sharing sessions.
I Am HereOctober 11, 5:30pm RSVP
Nine performers from the University of South Carolina at Lancaster share their personal stories surrounding racism, violence, and loss, as they wait for their passports to be cleared at the Rome airport. In this devised piece, these remarkable students assert their identities through theater, movement, song, and text. Directed by Marybeth Holloway and Andrea Paciotto, with dramaturgy by Catherine Filloux, I AM HERE grew out of a year long process that linked Filloux’s play SELMA ‘65 with students from USC Lancaster. SELMA ‘65 premieres at La MaMa September 26 and runs until October 12. Please visit lamama.org for more details.
