***** Machine Project
***** 1200 D North Alvarado Street

Presenters will include:

Deborah Aschheim

Deborah Aschheim creates works that blur biology and technology, exploring concepts of memory, architecture, and neural networks through drawings, sculpture, writing, installation and sounds.


Brian Evans

Brian Evans explores the intersection between reductivist sculptural form and the aesthetics of behavior, where structure and thought are fused. He creates simple moving objects with seemingly life-like qualities - electromechanical life forms with motivations only just beyond our understanding.


David Guttman

David Guttman creates interactive works that generate unique colors and shapes from sound and EEG.

Guest hosted by Thomas Edwards, former Dorkbot DC overlord.



= Damon Seeley =
Damon Seeley and partner Cameron McNall are Electroland, a team that
creates large-scale public art projects and electronic installations.
Each project is site-specific and may employ a broad range of media,
including light, sound, images, motion, architecture and
interactivity. Electroland is working at the forefront of new
technologies to create interactive experiences where visitors can
interact with buildings, spaces and each other in new and exciting


= Thomas Edwards =
Thomas Edwards is a technology artist who is a recent transplant from
Washington, DC (where he co-founded Dorkbot DC). He will be presenting
"Phy2Phy", his campaign to link physical objects to other physical
objects using the Interent. Phy2Phy concentrates on de-localization of
interaction through the use of affordable hardware devices, and
parallels the displacement of his own recent transcontinental journey.


= Gilad Lotan =
Gilad works to explore the intersection between culture, technology
and spatial design, made possible through new media. What gets him
excited is finding ways to create and use technology as a tool to
strengthen connections between people and to places. He builds objects
and designs spaces that take advantage of embedded technology as a way
to augment their base line functionality.

= Make:Way Design Briefing =
Also, the Make Magazine 24 Hours of LeMons race car project will be
giving a short presentation to describe how you can be involved and
get a project in Make Magazine.
Make:Way is Make Magazine's entry into the 2008 24 Hours of LeMons
race -- an endurance race where each car must be $500 or less. The
Make:Way team will be transforming a $300 1993 Ford Escort LX into a
screaming brute of a racecar. See how we do it!
We need individuals to produce side projects for inside the car, that
will include, but not limited to:
* Nixie tube (or other grabby display) gas gauge (A/D then display)
* In-car video, in-car audio
* Car-to-pitstop driver communication
* Car telemetry (data capture in moving car, transmit to pit)
This will be at minimum a "side bar" project in Make: Magazine, so you
could get a nice write up and be on the team, etc. Come on Saturday
and check it out.

Alberto Gaitan: Remembrancer

Alberto Gaitan is a composer/programmer/artist who creates a wide range of multimedia artwork. "Remembrancer" deals with transformation, memory, and the spacial, temporal and cultural resonance of events through automated robotic painters responding to news data flowing in over the Internet.

Eric Celarier

Eric Celarier creates sculpture and drawings that juxtapose artificially and naturally occurring media to portray organic forms that have never been, but, in a metaphorical way, could be, if the circumstances were favorable. His works depict biological evolution as mediated through human experience.

Tom Greaves: Compliment Machine

Tom Greaves is the will discus his machine which delivered compliments to passers-by on 14rth between P&V as a project for WAPC SiteProjects DC.

Dorkbot DC

Next Dorkbot DC Meeting:

Monday, September 10, 2007
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EDT

Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences
6th and E Streets, NW
Washington, DC 20001

Dorkbot is a technological arts organization made up of local chapters
around the world where artists, engineers, programmers, and others
share their work with the public and their peers. The motto of
Dorkbot is "people doing strange things with electricity."

The September meeting of Dorkbot DC will be held at the Marian
Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences, and will
have presentations by three artists.

Mechatronic and robotic artist Thomas Edwards will present his work
"Touch" which allows two individuals to physically touch each other
over the Internet. During the meeting, Edwards will demonstrate
touching fingers between Washington, DC, and Toronto, Canada.

Conrad Barski will present his work on the PicnicMob.Org web site.
PicnicMob is a concept to create "flash mob" picnics in parks of major
U.S. cities, but it assigns each participant to a location in the park
so that they are near other participants with similar interests
(calculated using simulated annealing).

Interactive video artist Philip Kohn will discus some of his new work
that combines live video cameras with computers to place participants
in virtual worlds.
