Next Thursday, November 21st, at 5:30 p.m. in the IDeATe Media Lab (Hunt Library A10A), students from the IDeATe course Robotics for Creative Practice will showcase two robotic and kinetic sculptures that they have created.

This collaborative course brings art and engineering together into making performance machines which are surprisingly animate. It explores interdisciplinary practice at the intersection of drama, music, and robotics.  These works were developed within the general theme of the course: using expressive dynamic behavior as a creative medium.
