“Currents, Fibers, and Forms” is an exhibit from the CodeCreate Collective at the Homewood Science Center that partners making and technology. With the intention to bring “art, science, and worlds” together, the exhibit consists of eighteen pieces built with common materials such as cardboard, fabric, simple circuits and cell phones. The show includes a “Blengin,” a dragon paying homage to artist Henry Darger and the “NeuroPentaptych” alluding to the trauma of chronic illness. A video reel brings CodeCreate’s design process to life.
Young people — both in age and spirit — learn in a special way when they’re making. Join the CodeCreate Collective and Homewood Science Center at an opening reception of Currents, Fibers and Forms, along with three family workshops. The reception, on August 4th, will introduce twenty pieces in mediums like cardboard, fabric, electronics and video. Wednesday evening workshops, on August 1st, 8th and 15th, will coach participants of all ages in making their own cardboard models, computer code, puppets with lights and magnets, sun prints and short videos.
