Workshop in Toronto

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be giving a workshop in Toronto, Canada at the end of this month!

Join me at InterAccess on July 26 for the first in the “Social in the Studio” series.

The first in InterAccess’ new “Social in the Studio” series invites you to come and work on projects alongside an artist in our community, because making together is both more fun and more critical. Or as Matt Ratto has said, “Critical making emphasizes the shared acts of making rather than the evocative object. The final prototypes are not intended to be displayed and to speak for themselves. Instead, they are considered a means to an end, and achieve value though the act of shared construction, joint conversation, and reflection.”

Michelle’s session in the studio will investigate a Pop Art hero, pizza, and glitchy 3D models. Bring your own smartphones with Autodesk 123D Catch installed and objects you want to capture for printing (or whatever else you’re working on). Part of the conversation over the course of the session will also look at what it means to be a “practising artist”, taking career breaks (to have other careers), and finding the threads of your practice that are always there, no matter the media.

For more information or to RSVP, check out the Facebook event page or the InterAccess website.

Planning first research question workshop

My primary supervisor is Chris Csikszentmihalyi, ERA Chair and Scientific Director of Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute. At M-ITI, I’ll be organizing a small workshop (which was initially just going to be for me) around working through the strong and weak points of my research question, and structuring my literature review.

I’m opening this workshop up now to anyone, and will post pics from the session when it happens. In the meantime I’m diving into reading and looking forward to a tour of Madeira that is being organized for us new PhD students!
