We had an incredible night at the first ever Uniqlo Tate Late event at the Tate Modern this month. It was a chance to explore the Tate after-hours and take part in an amazing array of different activities and art including DJ's, workshops, puppet shows and much more. We were overwhelmed by the positive and enthusiastic response to all our projects from the over 14,000 people who were there!
We had an amazing time at the Hackoustic Festival this summer. It was our first ever festival, and gave us chance to showcase some of the exciting musicians and artists associated with Hackoustic. Thanks to all those who came and those that performed and showed their work, and especially to the wonderful folk at Machines Room who hosted us for the day and gave us access to their excellent facilities! More media and info to follow, so watch this space!
We had another fantastic session this month with Stan Lewry from the Optosynth team fresh from their appearances at the opening of the new wing of Tate Modern and Music Tech Fest, Berlin. We had demonstrations of their new laser keyboard and laser mixing desk along with a lot of other new toys!
This is our regular monthly hacking session on the second Sunday of every month.
These sessions are an opportunity for you guys to bring your own projects along to the Hackspace and get some work done on them. There'll be other hackers working on their own projects and everyone's always keen to help each other out, trouble-shoot problems and give a bit of feedback.
