Scrapyard Challenge art project workshop, SangsangMadang, Hongdae Nov 27-29
Some New York artists are in town, Jonah Brucker-Cohen & Katherine Moriwaki and they gave a talk at Hongik University at Jochiwon campus about their upcoming public workshop.
There will be a free artist's talk at Gallery SangSangmadang in Hongdae on Thursday Nov 27 at 7pm.
The Scrapyard Challenge Workshops are intensive workshops where participants build simple electronic projects (both digital and analog inputs) out of found or discarded "junk" (old electronics, clothing, furniture, outdated computer equipment, appliances, turntables, monitors, gadgets, etc..) The MIDI Scrapyard version includes a mini workshop where participants build simple drawing robots or "DrawBots" with small, inexpensive motors, batteries, and drawing markers that can also be connected to Serial or MIDI interface. At the end of the day or evening, the workshop participants have a small performance, concert, or fashion show where they demonstrate and present their creations together as a group. No electronics skills or any experience with technology is necessary to participate in the workshops.
