Inventions (technology, science, knowledge, discoveries, progress)
The New Encyclopedia
A bestiary is an illustrated compendium of animals complete with poems and legends. Popular in the Middle Ages, bestiaries often featured imaginary animals along with real ones. In this workshop, we will make collages of imaginary beasts, think of where they live, what they eat, and where they spend the winter.
Like engineers and designers working on new machines, we will draw plans of cars, ships, planes, and rockets. We will then project our colorful designs on transparent film onto the wall.
An Ancient Smartphone
Texture and Materials Workshop
The telephone was invented in the late nineteenth century, and the first smartphone appeared almost a century later. But let us imagine that smartphones were invented in the Ancient World. Would they be made of wood, iron, or stone? We look at how we can imitate natural textures with various materials, and create life-size models of smartphones for Vikings and early Slavs.
Man of the Future X-Ray
Scale and Size Workshop
Each day scientists invent new devices to make our lives easier and longer. Perhaps, in a few decades, we will not be able to imagine a human being without added electronic devices and enhancements. What will the man of the future look like? In this workshop, we will ‘x-ray’ our bodies and fill them with various machines.
Sketching Tour 8+
There is a great variety of textures and materials to be found in an exhibition. On this tour we will try to collect as many samples as we can.
