About This Event
Join the Hamiltonian Gallery Saturday December 15th, at 1:00pm at the crossroads of art and technology. Hosted by Billy Friebele, Hamiltonian Hackathon will be a daylong event in which guest collaborators Jonathan Monaghan, Alberto Gaitan and Nathan Wallace lead discussions and interactive workshops on 3D printing, 3D scanning and open-source computing. RSVP required.
Hamiltonian Fellow Billy Friebele will demonstrate his latest work Current Recorder, a motion controlled kinetic sculpture installed in the gallery and speak about how technology is an integral component of his interest in mapping space.
Hamiltonian Fellowship Alumnus Jonathan Monaghan will be discussing his time at Makerbot Industries as well as his recent work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Met 3-D. Jonathan will lead a workshop on 123D Catch and 3D printing.
Alberto Gaitán has been a working in DC since 1980 as a multi-media artist, helping to start the first DC hackerspace HacDC as well as being a founding member and current Co-Overlord of Dorkbot DC. Alberto will speak about his approach to art making and how technology has provided a conduit for working collaboratively on inter-disciplinary projects. He will have a few demos of existing tools available to artists interested in incorporating physical computing into their work.
Artist Nathan Wallace will show and tell a CNC wall plotter, speaking about how technology has impacted his own art practice moving him towards a more collaborative creative process.
