Space available in toy hacking workshops
If you are anywhere in the vicinity of San Jose, CA in September please come participate in a solar toy hacking workshop called DIY Solar Sculptures. There is still space available. Sign up online here. Below is a little more about the overall event…hoping for mostly sunny days.
Tiffany Holmes will be showing solarCircus in Out of the Garage Into the World, a large exhibition that is part of the 2010 01SJ Biennial curated by Steve Dietz and Jaime Austin (http://01sj.org/).
Holmes’ solarCircus (2009-2010) is an interdisciplinary platform for eco-dialogue about the future of renewable energy in urban spaces. Inside South Hall, visitors can browse a resource library, hack a solar toy, and experiment with solar cell construction. Outdoors, a miniature city of the future displays the creative potentials of solar power. This imaginary world is constructed from recycled materials, various electronics, and solar panels.
