Robot, Meet Art.

Monday, August 28th, 2017 - General, News

I’ve embarked on a HUGE project. ‘Robot, Meet Art.’

It’s possibly the most challenging thing I’ve ever taken on in my life. I’m nervous and excited and, honestly, a little scared. But, this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. I’ve created a Google+ collection to document it all which you can check out and follow here!

With my recent admission to Google+ Create, the upcoming art exhibition I’ve put myself forward for and my recent acceptance into the University Of Sydney’s Mechatronics course (which I’m not sure if I’m going to do or not), I feel like this is a great time to launch this project off.

Basically, my grand schemes are to learn about robotics and combine my newfound knowledge with my passion and experience in music, as well as my love for art.

I want to bring the three fields together. Create robotic artworks worthy for exhibition in galleries, new mind-boggling musical instruments that could make for unforgettable performances, and other fantastical oddities that will inspire and delight you!

In the collection, I’ll be posting photos and videos of my learning and creating processes. I’ll post inspirations and news/events that have made me think or question things. I’ll reveal the final versions of my robot-music-artworks. And, I’ll hopefully be able to collaborate with others in the community too!

Although the project will be centred primarily on my Google+ page, I’ll also be posting things on my YouTube channel and big, landmark things on this blog.

I can’t wait to go on this journey and bring you along with me! It’s time to put a calculator, some microcontrollers and wires into my lab kit and, as the Doctor says… Allons-y!
