In-person sessions available for this cumulative, three-day workshop. Attendance at all three sessions is recommended. Specialty supplies will be available to registrants from the Westport Library.
New media artist Balam Soto combines cutting-edge, digital technologies with traditional media. At this workshop, students will construct a light sculpture that can be programmed with a 32-bit controller board. This project was inspired by Balam's current work in progress, Forest of Light, which will be unveiled in June at the Five Points Galley in Torrington, CT.
