DORKBOT Eindhoven

************************ ENGLISH VERSION ************************

DORKBOT #1 Wednesday  April 6
DORKBOT #2 Wednesday June 8
8.30 p.m. at the Gaslab, TU/e

Around the globe there is a movement of small, autonomous functioning
organizations with a similar goal: Offering a platform to (mostly
local and regional) artists, designers, scientists, nerds, students
and others whom, in their work let themselves be inspired by
technology. This movement is called Dorkbot. DorkbotEindhoven begins
April 6th.

The purpose of dorkbot is: to give artists/programmers/engineers an
opportunity for informal peer review; establish a forum for the
presentation of new art works/technology/software/hardware; help
establish relationships and foster collaboration between people with
various backgrounds and interests.


We are looking for arty/techy/dorky people that want to present their
technology-related projects or ideas (in English or Dutch) on April
6th or June 8th.

Some imaginary presentation topics are: a demo of the new motion
tracking software you're writing; playing a video/sound-art you made;
an explanation of how you hacked your game boy to get it to make cool
bleeping noises; trouble shooting your remote-controlled sandwich
making robot; bringing in some dancers you're working with and having
them demonstrate the interface used in your new mind-control ballet;
discussing your approach to electronic sculpture.

If you have questions or would like to present your project at the
next Dorkbot contact us at: dorkboteindhoven AT dorkbot.org

Dorkbot Eindhoven is an initiative of Art & Technology Festival STRP
