STEAMhouse, 4 Belmont Row, Birmingham B4 7RQ
A workshop exploring systems of communication through making and playing to create unpredictable outcomes from which new ideas can arise.
What’s a STEAM Lab?
STEAM Labs are highly experimental collaborative workshops where participants work through a STEAM process that impels them to think about the development of projects, products, and services in completely new ways. Every STEAM Lab is different but each one is underpinned by our five guiding principles: conversation, exploration, collaboration, openness and newness.
What’s this one all about?
This STEAM lab explores the transference of information as a creative act and looks at how chain reactions feed into each other and are transitioned through methods, materials and challenges. Through these activities, you’ll consider whether mistakes in communication might be analogous to the mistakes that occur in genetic code during reproduction and how this may power the evolution of the creative process.
What will happen during the STEAM Lab?
In Mike’s own words…”You will use the transference of ideas through working together, playing games and using machines to create a spatialised neural network. Undertaken in groups, you will try out different creative production techniques while exploring ideas of chaos and order, meaning and meaninglessness, pre-determinism and spontaneity.”
Who’s it for?
This STEAM Lab is for anyone who is curious about how the format of play facilitates the exchange of ideas in an empathetic and imaginative way.
What will I get out of it?
This is up to you to define! You’ll get a deeper understanding of how miscommunication, limitations and corruptions created by the rules of ‘play’ uncovers new and unexpected ways to see through other people’s eyes.
