The Science Club Talks Art Machines
We asked you to build a machine that could make art, and you delivered, with dozens of projects that somehow direct or convert energy into something artistic. (See our gallery of #MachineArt projects here.) Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich of the Exploratorium’s Tinkering Studio, who helped design this project, join Science Club founding member Ariel Zych to talk about the creative process and the art of tinkering, and to recap this month’s Science Club project.
Ariel Zych is Science Friday’s director of audience. She is a former teacher and scientist who spends her free time making food, watching arthropods, and being outside.
Karen Wilkinson is director of The Tinkering Studio at the The Exploratorium in San Francisco, California.
Mike Petrich is director of Making Programs at The Exploratorium in San Francisco, California.
