Kal Spelletich has for almost four decades built interactive machines and robots. His work enacts a liberated awareness and pushes his audience toward creative responses to technology in their lives. It explores the interface of humans and science to put people in touch with philosophical interactive experiences.
Robots, Science, and Artistic Revolutionary Practices
This interactive workshop will include a demonstration of Kal's robots that are about sound, science, absurd engineering, interactivity, and poetically inspired tech. He will talk a bit about his life as an artist and educator, then demonstrate a number of his works while fielding questions. He will show you how to build low-cost robots and tech art for next to nothing. Hack Arduino sensors without using an Arduino! Collaborate as often as possible - three people are a revolution and a movement. Get advice on showing your weird tech art. Why art!? Because we can - and we are changing the world with it. By finding your voice, you become empowered and discover your reason for being on the planet! Once you do that, there is no stopping you.
