On Holidays at Linden > Futuristic Inventions

COST > FREE, DROP- IN ACTIVITY 

Inventor Thomas Edison said, “To have a great idea, have a lot of them!” What great idea do you have waiting to happen?

The world’s greatest inventors started with some pretty crazy ideas that seemed almost impossible. Yet here we are today, flying through the sky in aeroplanes, playing video games on smart phones and planning for life on Mars.

This school holiday, we invite kids to drop-in to the gallery to design their own futuristic inventions. Nothing is too crazy nor too impossible!

What can you come up with?

VENUE > Linden New Art, 26 Acland Street, St Kilda
COST > $25 , 18+ Includes a drink on arrival 

 

Kick off the Grand Final long weekend with some sophisticated, cultured chit chat.

Just kidding, let’s head to the pub. 

And answer our burning question: Who says geeks and footy don’t mix? Because not us. In fact, we’re so certain geeks and footy DO mix that we can make a whole event about it. Don’t believe that?

The evening will go something like this: each of our experts will present their topics for 20 minutes only. Then it’s over to you. Ask a question, any question. Only catch is both speakers have to answer the same question. “Is it possible to program a perfect game strategy?”  (Prizes for the best question.)

Girl geeks and footy fanatics; strange bedfellows or best buds?

Addressing topical and environmental issues, hear from the artist about the significance of Brodie Ellis’s work which features a rocket weighed down by rendered clay. Ellis grounds her sculptural SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket to question whether the purpose of this technological feat should actually be realised.

Ellis’s exhibition presents a video, sculpture and sound installation. Beautifully abstracted fragments of dozens of rocket launches are blended together in a fluid animation that focuses on jet propulsion and the burning of resources. The sculptural components reference design elements of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy, the most powerful operational rocket in the world, which holds contracts with the U.S defence force. Ellis’ work will distil the vessel to its essence through rendering in white clay, pine, linen and paper.
