The workshop will guide participants in using the basic principles of direct current motors and electric generators and making their paintings shine through a hand crank generator. Participants are encouraged to break the rules of traditional art by making sensual paintings. They will use low-tech methods to create alternative new media works and realise their ideas. The activity aims to encourage participants to think about medium and creative methods and experience the aesthetics of uncertainty driven by machines and materials.
