Machine-making bootcamp for dystopian futures
29 April-5 May
Plug-in-City (Leidingstraat 17A, Eindhoven)
An initiative by Creative Lab Brainport, École Supérieure d'Art et de Design de Valenciennes (FR), Fictional Collective at Plug-in-City
As we acknowledge and celebrate the 500th death anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci in 2019, we will explore the world of machines and automaton - a pretext to reflect upon the automated world and to experiment with engineered movement.
This bootcamp aims to trigger the imagination and speculate on machines functioning in a dystopian future . Starting from your personal vision, working on a dystopian scenario, we will imagine a lost city with its machines, their purpose, the space and environment in which they
will function. Based upon the constructed scenario, you will work in group to design a machine, a tool or an automaton ( a self-operating machine).
As a result of the bootcamp, we expect a series of machines, engine or human-powered and presented in a dystopian context, in a future society. We foresee the inclusion of all the media necessary to express this vision (models, videos, drawings), in order to immerse ourselves in this imaginary world and experience it.
If you want to take part in the bootcamp , please send an email to Lorenzo Gerbi, ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) introducing yourself and explaining why you want to join AUTOMATON More details on the bootcamp will be uploaded in the next weeks at this link: http://fc-plugincity.tumblr.com/automaton
