Hope you'll join us next Thursday, April 30th at 7PM for the next installment of Chicago Dorkbot. This time Brian Comnes will take us on a journey through crunchy tube labyrinths into a fiery halo of home-made distortion gear. We'll also get a close-up look at some of the technical and aesthetic differences between analog and digital distortions, climaxing in an earsplitting A-vs-D cage match.

See you at:

WTF:

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is of "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!

On Thursday April 2, current dorkbot Chicago organizers jonCates and Jake Elliott will give a short presentation on the past, present and future of dorkbot in Chicago. The artist-run organization Enemy Sound will host and Todd Bailey will present a sneak peak at a new project.

Dorkbot veteran Todd Bailey will demonstrate his latest project, "Where's the Party At v1.0", an 8-bit audio sampler in kit form.

H3X3N is a group of Computer Witches who have built an enchanted cube that casts magical spells on computers. This cube, called IX, is a New Media Artwork that will be shown at DEADTECH, an art and technology center and gallery in Chicago, this Saturday May 10. The IX cube casts spells on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers, hacking and hexing these operating systems. IX combines traditional stage magic tricks and irony as elements of Hacker culture to create an Interactive Installation and Software Art project. IX has been exhibited previously at the Interactivos? exhibition at the Media Lab Madrid in Madrid, Spain.

H3X3N, a collaborative computer witchcraft club from Chicago, Mexico City Mexico and Linz Austria, is currently composed of Mark Beasley, Sandra Rosas Ridolfi, jake elliott, tamas kemenczy, Alex Inglizian, Nina Wenhart and jonCates.
