Vinicius Marquet’s “Tell Me a Secret” Workshop

Join us Thursday, January 21 at 12:00 in the ModLab (Fine Arts 215) for a workshop called “Tell Me a Secret.” The workshop will be led by visiting artist Vinicius Marquet, and lunch will be served.

Marquet, author of Anacrón: hipótesis de un producto todo, on display in the “E-Lit: A Matter of Bits” exhibition in the Stedman Gallery, will lead this workshop as part of an experience-sharing project between communities. Participants will graphically depict secrets shared by people in the Netherlands. At the end of the workshop, participants will be invited to anonymously share their own secrets in order to feed future versions of the project.

The Typomatic Visits the DSC


On December 2-3, ALIS will visit the DSC from Paris to help construct Camden’s own Typomatic. The Typomatic appears to be a photobooth, but it is much more. Once inside, you can cut words in half and discover how you might piece them back together again. You might begin by typing your name: You will come out of Typomatic with half of a new identity.

conf-1-typomatic2-e1435916011782Students and faculty are welcome to join in the construction of this device, which involves building the booth as well as writing code. The two-day workshop will culminate in an official opening of the Rutgers-Camden Typomatic at 3:00pm on December 3 in the ModLab (Fine Arts 215).
