WORKSHOP : Introduction to Processing: Programming Fundamentals
Tuesday, December 3rd and Wednesday, December 4th from 7-10pm

There are still a couple spots left in this workshop, in which Raphael Arar will teach the fundamentals of programming in a visual context using the Processing programming language/development environment. The workshop will teach programming basics to attendees while branching on concepts in visual art, design and interactivity. Basic computing skills and a laptop with a free download of Processing are all that’s required.

Registration is $85 for Machine members and $95 for non-members. Combine this class with next week’s Advanced Processing: Programming Generative Art workshop and take each class for $80.

EVENT : Los Angeles: City of Butterflies Native Plant Sale
Sunday, December 8th from 12-5pm

Join us as Ann Hadlock and the Theodore Payne Foundation transform our 99-cent store into a native plant store and butterfly education center! Each butterfly species requires a unique host plant which their caterpillars consume before they chrysalize and metamorphose into their flying form. We will be selling fifty of these ‘behind-the-scenes’ plants at cost to visitors, as well as giving away wildflower seed packets, flash cards, and field guides for butterflies.

PARTNERSHIP: Machine Project and KCET’s Artbound

 
We are pleased to announce a new partnership with KCET’s Artbound to share essays, interviews, and videos that chronicle The Machine Project Field Guide to L.A. Architecture, our summer-long initiative that invited artists to respond to 20 notable architectural sites as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.

Read the first two installments below, and keep an eye on our partnership page for new content weekly!
*Welcome to the Field Guide to L.A. Architecture by Mark Allen
*Jmy James Kidd and the Sunland Dancers on Flat Top Hill by Bennett Williamson

NEW VIDEOS :
*It’s Not Right, But It’s OK, by Cliff Hengst
Join Cliff Hengst on a Starline Bus Tour as he has his body taken over by the soul of Whitney Houston. Starting at the Beverly Hilton, Whitney reminisces down memory lane on a double decker tour bus and takes one last look at the legendary boulevard of luxury, industry, and Subway sandwiches. The tour concludes at MacArthur Park, which is currently melting in the dark. Then the bus returns the audience back to the starting point at the Beverly Hilton.

*The Dawning of the Age of Aquariums, by David Eng
David Eng leads us on a tide pool visit accompanied by a live string ensemble featuring Melinda Rice, Mona Tian, Andrew McIntosh and Chris Votek. The event concludes in the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s auditorium with a brief lecture on the origin story of 19th-century aquaria.

*Furniture Music: A Concert for Household Objects
An evening of noisy new music exploring the sonic potential of household objects. The event takes place in a 1914 Venice Craftsman redesigned and remodeled in 1998 by architect Roger F. White to emphasize the historical conditions including site, culture, environment and economics in relationship to the context of the time. Alterations to the house are always in progress as part of the evolution of a Contemporary Bungalow for the 21st Century.

These videos are part of Machine Project’s Field Guide to L.A. Architecture.

THE REVIEWS ARE IN : Machine Project’s Greatest Hits DVD
Looking for that perfect gift for your secret santa recipient that includes dog operas, trapdoors and plants on vacation? Then consider the purchase of our Machine Project Greatest Hits 2010-2012 DVD. Recent reviewers say “It’s too LOUD!” and “I learned that from the Indians!” (Gigi, 8 years old), and call it a “highly entertaining in its own right, and a more-than-adequate précis of a curatorial vision that doesn’t lend itself to reductive translation.” (Doug Harvey, Artillery Magazine).

PS : Registration open for December Processing classes
We’re offering an Intro to Processing class next week, and a Generative Art in Processing class the following week. Register for both and get a discount! More information is on our classes page.

*Saturday, November 2 at 2:00pm, 3:30pm, and 5:00pm: Abstraction Reaction – Kelly Sears
Kelly Sears curates a program of experimental animation that explores the space beyond the pictorial, figurative and often the recognizable — abstraction as a craft and a wide variety of techniques with which contemporary artists forge a lyrical, graphical, and liminal visual practice.

SOLD OUT, sorry

Learn the basics of hand embroidery from Jenny Hart in Embroidery for Artists, a class that focuses on textural effects and free-form techniques.

EVENT : Musical Soldering at 1450 Ocean, Santa Monica
Saturday, October 12th, 2-5pm

We’ve partnered with 1450 Ocean in Santa Monica to bring some of our most popular workshops to the Westside. Our first beach-side class will be the ever-popular Musical Soldering, led by Machine Project founder Mark Allen on Saturday, October 12th from 2-5pm. Participants will learn to solder by building a primitive (but rad) synthesizer. As people get their synths working, we’ll add some music-making, and by the end of the workshop everyone will play a simple and inevitably out of tune musical piece together.

Registration is $40 for Machine members and $50 for non-members. For more information and to register click here.

If you’re more into thread than resistors, consider our Embroidery for Artists class at 1450 Ocean the following Saturday, October 19th.

ARCHIVE : Walking Places: Four Walks in Los Angeles, Ken Ehrlich

A series of four playful, absurd, critical and activity-based walks in different parts of the city that examine the architectural landscape up close and reveal Los Angeles as a space of ghosts, projections, limits and possibilities. Led by Ken Ehrlich and an invited collaborator, each walk presented a framed experience of a part of the city, rather than a narration or tour of architectural history.

This event is part of Machine Project’s Field Guide to L.A. Architecture.

SAVE THE DATE : Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater opens next week
Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater will be open to the public starting Thursday, October 17th from 8-11pm. The storefront cavern will be open from Thursday through Sunday from 8-11pm through November 24th. We are currently inviting opera singers, poets, performance artists, musicians, actors, scientists, and playwrights to develop programming for our basement theater related to hauntings, the uncanny, and the mysterious. The schedule for the theater will be updated here as shows are confirmed.

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS : We need actors and puppeteers!

As we just mentioned, the Machine Project storefront has been transformed into the haunted Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater, and now we need volunteers to complete the magic. If you’ve been hankering to learn Victorian-era seance and theater techniques and/or have some time to spare on the occasional Thursday through Sunday evening for the next several weeks, drop a line to machine@machineproject.com with the subject line [feeling caveish], and mark your calendar for a training session this Wednesday, October 9 at 7:30pm (where you’ll also get a sneak peek at the caverns!).
