Happy Holidays and New Year!
I will be teaching a three-day workshop on Motion, Mechanisms and Kinetic Sculpture at Machine Project, in the first week of January. Click for more info.
This workshop will serve as an introduction to simple machines, linkages, couplings, basic mechanism and how all of these combine into more complex machines. We will cover many critical concepts including levers, block & tackle, gears, work, force, machine elements, and most importantly: translation of force. Focus will be on creative applications.
Machine Project is a non-profit community space in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles investigating art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food. In our storefront on North Alvarado street we produce events, workshops, and site-specific installations using hands-on engagement to make rarefied knowledge accessible.
