City of the Future: Second Class at Tam High
Image by fabola
Our after-school students at Tam High are building a City of the Future together, using arts and electronics to make a model of what our world may be like in 100 years.
In our second class, they designed the city they envision for this project and took turns discussing their ideas with each other. In their post-apocalyptic scenario, the rich are separated from the poor, who mine the sea floor and are oppressed by a government run by machines.
They also picked characters and objects for their city — some of which will be laser cut and printed in 3D. Next, they learned to solder stick figures out of copper wire, then made light circuits with LEDs and batteries. Finally, they added these lights to their futuristic homes, which they continued to decorate with gift wrapping paper, art supplies and everyday objects.
We have a great group of eight middle school students, ages 12 to 14, in this after-school class. Through this course, students will develop a range of skills, from creative expression to science and engineering (STEAM). And they will learn to create their own interactive art with simple electronics, in a playful way that makes learning more fun.

Pataphysical Time Travel
Image by fabola
The good doctors at Pataphysical Studios gathered at Dr. Rindbrain and Dr. Judy’s home on a rainy Saturday to contemplate the passage of time and make art about it.
We celebrated Dr. Skidz’ 70th birthday in style, with small gifts ranging from an illuminated tie to an antique telephone, hearty spirits, a nice chocolate cake and stock in the Mind Shaft Society.
We then discussed our first sketches and models for the Time Machine — and sketched out more ideas about our next pataphysical invention.
We enjoyed this opportunity to cheer our old friend and design our upcoming time travel experience together.
Fire in the hole!
