Electronics and digital technology can infuse works of art with an element of magic. At my organization, The Hacktory, we have literally put this magic in people’s hands, through classes and large public events. We want to do more though. We want to make our classes available to artists. We've found that they are usually the most excited to take our classes, but are usually the least able to pay for our classes.
The Hacktory is creating a program called T.E.R.A. Incognita: Tech Education and Residency for Artists. Our goal is to support artists who want to create new work and experiment with technology such as cameras, projectors, sensors, robots, software and circuits. We have a kickstarter going now to get the project off the ground. Sorry for the self-promotion here, but it's a one-of-a-kind project, and we've won a challenge grant that we need to match to make it happen.
