People Deserve New Interactive Experiences with Creative Technology. Minneapolis Center for Digital Art will offer Creative Tech Exhibits & Activities to Help Create a Better World through Unexpected Participatory Experiences, Social Connectivity, and Inclusive Practice
Creating these activity centers will be the focus of 2016/2017
Participants will watch custom MakeART videos on iPads mounted to a giant work table to learn simple creative tech projects. All the materials needed to experience creating these self-guided projects will be available in bins at the table to: solder LEDs, create LED Throwies, create a #wearabletech patch with LEDs & conductive thread, experiment with conductive ink, and more rotating projects! Pose at the #SelfieWall and take a photo with your finished works for Instagram. Fun - Quick - Cool... 20 min ArtLab!
Imagine a room full of projectors with iPads. Participants draw the theme of the week, or their own designs. When the image is uploaded options for creating merchandise, delivered to their home, and an option to make a charitable donation to local non-profit organizations will be offered. At the T-shirt station, print your own t-shirt with your iPad drawings using a heat-press for wearable digital surface design creation in live-time.
