PUBLIC TALK: Science isn't about why, it's about why the hell not!
|Science isn't about why, it's about why the hell not! : SymbioticA Friday seminar with Perth Artifactory members
The Artifactory is Perth's manifestation of the world-wide phenomenon of hackerspaces; free-form communities of "Makers" that band together to build their own robotic CNC tools, explore cutting edge DIY fabrication such as 3D printing, share electronics and crafting skills, and generally build useful and creative stuff. Now 2 years old and 25 members strong, this creative collective of engineers, artists, artisans and technologists are based in a warehouse in Osborne Park where they run training days for topics such as computer-aided design and machining, talks and lectures by guest Artists and Scientists, and regular meetings of minds and manufacturing to produce a bewildering range of Artifacts.
Funded purely by member subscription, open to all, The Artifactory promotes curiosity and experimentation in all directions.
