Machine Project: classes and workshops

24 January 2011

Author : jeanne-salome-rochat

Machine Project is a non-profit community space in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles investigating art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food (more keywords here). In their Echo Park storefront, they produce events, workshops, and site-specific installations using hands-on engagement to make rarefied knowledge accessible.

Outside of the storefront, they operate as a loose confederacy of artists producing shows at locations ranging from the Santa Monica beach to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They’re currently developing a year long project exploring how visitors experience the Hammer Museum.

Notably, they are organizing in February their very first online writing workshop intitled “Online Writing Workshop in Experimental Science Fiction”, with instructor Mark von Schlegell.

As told on their website, “the class will explore experimental science fiction through readings, discussions and writing workshops. Drawing on readings from the Book of Elijah through to Samuel Delany and beyond, the course will explore how science fiction as a genre works and how to push it to its limits. Students will also write and submit original sci-fi writing in an online workshop and receive feedback from their peers and from Mark.”
