Hi all.  Sorry for the delay on posts recently, but there have been a lot of changes.

But back to the digital realm…

I just received a note from Carla and Ezio about their upcoming SPECULATIS workshop.  Here is a quick statement from them:

The deadline for applications for the SPECULATIS workshop has been extended to JUNE 25th, 2010!!
To apply, contact: education@opolab.com

SPECULATIS is a workshop that introduces and explores techniques of algorithmic design and fabrication integrated with interactive components. The platform integrates seminars and construction of a design piece at natural scale – a working chandelier – as a means of investigating different techniques and potentials present in the intersection of morphological discovery through algorithmic processes, fabrication technologies, and interactivity modulation.
The workshop will be held July 10-17th in Oporto, Portugal. Please find attached our advertising poster and press release. We thank you in advance for helping divulge this initiative.
More info can be found at:

For general information, questions: info@speculatis.com
For applications/registration: education@opolab.com

This is a great opportunity for anyone in Portugal (or in Europe in general) who is interested in computational methodologies to get a first-hand experience with algorithmic and advance fabrication techniques.  Also, since it has been scheduled over the summer, it shouldn’t conflict with regular academic schedules.  So don’t hesitate to sign up.  🙂
