Abstract / Description: 

Kickoff for community sculpture to commemorate EE's 125th anniversary


Starting our weekly workshops on the interactive light art installation we're building to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department. These weekly workshops are a way for students, faculty, staff, and alumni from across the university to be involved in and contribute to the art piece. Charles Gadeken, the artistic director for the project, will be leading the workshops. This quarter, the workshops will be on Mondays. They will usually be in the afternoons, but Charlie will move the time around some so that almost everyone will be attend at some point.

The workshop on September 30th will be 1-3PM.  If we need more space we'll move to an open area upstairs and leave a sign.

In the workshop, we'll
* Brainstorm artistic visions and ideas
* Look at suggestions from the town hall meeting
* Look at the feedback from the students already in the class
* Begin writing the story of what we are trying to achieve and creating a road map to getting there

Topic: 
Nothing Half Way - Being Fearless With Your Projects
Abstract / Description: 

Quinn has been making games for 36 years, on platforms ranging from the Apple II to all manner of newfangled things. She currently manages engineering for mobile games at Scopely. She also pursues consulting, independent development, mixed-media engineering projects, and writing. In her spare time she welds things, races cars, hacks electronics, and berates her friends with sarcasm.

Editorial comment: Quinn decided that if Steve Wozniak could make a computer in a garage, she should be able to do that too. She then embarked on a journey to build a computer from scratch (PCBs and all) in her kitchen / garage. The result, which she calls Veronica, is a truly homemade programmable computer. You can find out more about all this on her web sites.

 

Please RSVP for Quinn's talk (and free food) by 2/13/16.

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 4:00pm
