Light Hacking Weekend

Let there be light hacking! 

Sat. + Sun. April 5th + 6th | 10:00am - 4:00pm 

Join us for a two-day exploration/build session/make-a-thon that explores optics, light, and interactivity. There will be a variety of projects each day for you to play with, and some for you to build and take home with you.

Day 1 (Saturday): Learn how the Old Master painters did their work back in the analog days with the help of prisms, pinholes, and other optical illusions. Play with a large-scale camera obscura, and build your own mini-camera obscura to take home, and try your hand at the NeoLucida, a remix of an old drawing aid that was funded by an amazing kickstarter campaign.

Day 2 (Sunday): Come explore the code and equipment artists use to make amazing, immersive digital installations that respond to your movement. Build your own POV kit that has a secret message that can only be seen when it moves, or a light saber! We'll take some long-exposure camera photos once it's dark enough and play light pictionary and make some light graffiti. (Please note there will be an additional material cost of $10-$20 for these specific items).

All ages are welcome, under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
