Making Art With Weird A.I.

Get Tickets

Whether intelligent or not, we can agree that artificial intelligence (AI) is pretty weird. Students will learn what AI can and cannot do, and how Surrealist artists were all about stimulating their imagination in weird ways. Then we'll bring the two together:

We'll learn to use Runway (a program that makes using AI really easy) to generate creatures, objects, scenery never seen before. Working like a Surrealist artist, we'll use them as prompts to create our own fantastical drawings and collages.

Memory Enchantment

SIGN UP HERE

@dreampr00fx presents MEMORY ENCHANTMENT on Friday, August 23 - Internaut Day - to celebrate the anniversary of the World Wide Web >>>

Our embodied experiences have transformed from digital techno-ecologies. Thumb-scrolling & finger-thinking, whether as mobile phone or computer users, our bodies have adapted accordingly. While wires & wifi help us communicate across planet earth, how do we keep in touch with our own bodies? @dreampr00fx conjures an evening of MEMORY ENCHANTMENT to re-member the body as techno-ecology. Offerings include Cyborg Yoga, medicinal elixirs (blueberry juice / peppermint matcha / butterfly pea brew & more), video art & altar installation for asdfhjkl; (godlord of internet) by the CosmiKnots (@theparhelia & @kkdelavida), a punk ritual by @brujaluna & more.

“[In] our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs… A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, a creature of social reality, as well as a creature of fiction… Technology is not neutral. We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade." - Donna J. Haraway /// Cyborg Yoga activates practices of hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, asana, pranayama, somatic movement & yoga nidra to release excess stress accumulated from daily digital activity. Through 60-minutes of embodied flow, we re-program & re-circuit our cyborg selves/cells, cultivating an inner strength & serenity at our root core, so we may confidently continue to transform the world around us.


Energy exchange is $10-15 +/or fruit to share. No one will be turned away for lack of funds or fruit. Bring your own yoga mat, or let us know (24 hours in advance) if you need one to borrow. Cyborg Yoga offering is capped at 23 participants. After 8pm, entry is $5-$10 sliding scale donation for elixir drink + ritual performances.

Introduction to Writing Your Own Website With HTML and CSS

SIGN UP HERE

POWRPLNT in collaboration with the Tech Learning Collective presents: Introduction to Writing Your Own Website in HTML and CSS. This workshop, based on the Tech Learning Collective’s intensive WEB101 course, is a practical introduction to the basics of creating Web sites of any size, from personal blogs to full-fledged Web applications. No prior experience in Web design is assumed, but even experienced “front-end designers” will leave with a better understanding of what Web sites are really made of:

The Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the de-facto standard for publishing information online, a kind of digital equivalent to learning to read and write. Why, then, is it so rarely explained in terms of the language that it actually is? What is HTML’s grammar, where do HTML “sentences” begin and end, and how is meaning represented in its elements? You don’t need a computer science degree to learn a foreign language, and that includes HTML.

This workshop is designed for anyone who ever wanted to toy with HTML once or twice, whether it was in the 90’s or just last week. Based on a portion of the Tech Learning Collective’s WEB101 course, it is a remarkably thorough treatment of some of the Web’s most powerful and most-often overlooked parts. Covering the structure of HTML and extending to the richness of semantic data formats like Microdata and RDFa, learn how to write in the Web’s native language so that both humans (like your friends and comrades) and machines (like Google!) can find, use, and most importantly understand what you’re saying.

$25 - Suggested Donation (no one will be turned away for lack of funds!)
Class space is limited! Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to reserve your seat.

The Punching Machine - Art Show Opening

RSVP HERE

The Punching Machine is a month-long residency at Powrplnt presented by Disclaimer Gallery featuring the work of Beca Acosta.

Through a small installation and three-event series, the residency and exhibit will explore the souls of interactive sculpture and how they can reflect those human emotions that seem impossible to express. In Acosta’s work, objects believed to have no feeling - pain/stress/desire - become extensions of ourselves and their own beings through mechanical technology. 

Join us for an opening reception Thursday, June 13th 6-9pm!
