On April 13th at 6pm we will have Mike Tyka from ALTSpace at the store to tell us about: “a) Installing a 26ft, functional, LED-driven Rubik’s cube at the Pacific Science Center. We first presented it at Burning Man 2009 and we’ve had a lot of fun upgrading it and making it suit a museum environment. b) Exploring the art of copper work and making sculptures of proteins. Proteins are beautifully evolved molecules and have fascinating shapes and symmetries. Expressing these hidden aspects in artwork has been a fascinating journey. [and] c) Setting up ALTSpace, what we have learned in the one year of our existence and how we’ve evolved into a slightly different direction from the other spaces in Seattle.”
As you can see, the Rubik’s cube looks amazing! The protein structures too! I can’t wait for this talk. It should be really amazing. So far, our hackerspace events have been super interesting, and this one looks like it will not disappoint.
*About this series: Seattle is the home of many amazing hackerspaces and each of them have really interesting projects that they are working on as well as events going on throughout the year. Here at Ada’s, we love hackerspaces and wanted to create an event series centered around these hackerspaces. At each monthly event, a member of a local hackerspace will come into the store and talk about what he or she is currently working on and how that particular space is helping with the project.
