What you will do
3 hour workshop
After a quick introduction to the machines I built and robots I work with, you will choose the machine and technique to draw your own artworks. Whether you want to draw figurative or abstract, I will walk you through the bespoke processes I have created to use the machines as creative tools, and together we will bring your ideas to life. While composing your artwork with the machine, you will also get a chance to experience other digital art forms such as painting in virtual reality, creating pattern in real-time through generative art as well as experiencing other robots such as Sphero, Rovio and even a robotic arm. Finally, I will also give you up-to-date information on new media art that can be currently be seen in London.
