the mechanics of community

  the mechanics of community is the latest DIWO project. we are coming together as a community to turn the most public gallery at San Jose State’s Art & Design School into an open workshop on electronics. we will be teachng artists how to use small electronics & robotics in their work and practice.

James Stone is collaborating again with his class called Augment Teddy, in which we will create cyborged teddy-bears.

on Tuesday we are taking advantage of the school holiday to build a small simple bot that can follow the brightest spot of light (what i refer to as ‘moth behavior’), the Quickly-bot. here’s an old blog post about the device & a followup

you can follow our Ustream simulcast and recordings at:

the classes and worshop is open to all SJSU students, faculty, and staff and there are no charges for the classes but there is a small charge for the kits ($10 or less).
