This workshop aims to build a series of prosthetic devices using discarded electronic equipment collected from around New York City, using anatomic sensorial features of animal species found in Colombia for inspiration. The main tool in this process will be the Arduino interface, which will help to give these obsolete electronic devices a new purpose and function. The workshop culminates in a public performance featuring participants and their creations.
Space is limited. Drop-ins on the day of the program will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis in the Cullman Education and Research Building, beginning one hour prior to the start of the program.
Workshop duration is 90–120 minutes.
Studios are free, interactive spaces offering drop-in programs and artist- and educator-led workshops to visitors of all ages in conjunction with an exhibition or a topic related to modern and contemporary art. These experiences complement looking and talking about works of art in the galleries, allowing for engagement with art in participatory, creative ways. Visitors can experiment, play, and create as they make connections between their lives, their own creativity, and the processes and materials of modern and contemporary art. Learn more
