Date: Saturday, July 2, 2011 Time: 4 pm – on Part of Flux Factory's Summer School program, this day-long event explores the practical, philosophical, and playful applications of the term “hacking.” Presentations cover topics such as culture jamming, dumpster diving, email encryption, and the repurposing of waste items into useful tools.
In an interview from 1986, Isamu Noguchi described the newly-created Noguchi Museum as “a place to reflect and see an alternative existence.” The Noguchi Museum’s upcoming Community Day celebrates slowing down and focusing, and explores the contemplative opportunities offered by this special museum space.
This year, Flux Factory is pleased to participate by hosting a Slow Art viewing experience in the museum. Choose from among five experiences, curated by hosts from the local LIC community, in which participants spend ten or more minutes with each of three works of art. Then join your host for a discounted drink at a nearby restaurant, to discuss the experience.
