Erasure Poetry with Makey Makey

  • 1808 5th Street Berkeley United States (map)

This workshop is for ages 18+

Erasure is the act of erasing fragments of an existing text to create a new one. In this workshop, you’ll physically “erase” books, magazines, and newspapers with markers and paint to create your own poems. Then, we’ll use the Makey Makey to make your poems interactive!

We will be collaborating with our friends at Atiq: The Jewish Maker Institute to think about freedom as a topic for the compositions. This workshop will be a first draft for a poetic automata workshop at Maker Faire in May.
