January Melbourne Dorkbots this Sunday, and special(!) next Thursday

[Bring your dorks, but please don't forward this to other lists]

Dorkbot Melbourne
>>> people doing strange things with electricity <<<
4pm, Sunday 27th January, 2008
7.30pm, Thursday 31st January, 2008
Level 1, 124a Johnston St Fitzroy 3065 (just east of Brunswick St).

January 2008 brings not one but two Dorkbot Melbourne events, both at the
usual venue.

This Sunday (27th January) we're holding a social afternoon of DVD
screenings. Doors open at 4pm, films start at 4.30. We'll be screening the
following inspiring documentaries:

1. Works of Art by Theo Jansen [http://www.strandbeest.com] (31')

2. "The Way Things Go" (Der Lauf Der Dinge)  Peter Fischli and David Weiss
[http://www.tcfilm.ch/lauf_txt_e.htm] (30')

3. Paricipatory Installations - Interactive Wood Machines. Bernie Lubell.
[http://blubell.home.att.net] (50')

Please bring drinks and nibbles and join us for a relaxing social gathering
of Melbourne Dorkbots.

...

But wait, there's more! This coming Thursday (31st January), we'll be
holding a special, but more regular-style Dorkbot Melbourne meeting. Doors
open 7.30pm, presentations start at 8. Our special guest from Berlin, Robert
Henke, aka Monolake will be joining us to talk about the design,
construction and evolution of his Monodeck performance controller - a custom
built MIDI controller he uses to perform live electronic music
[http://www.monolake.de/monodeck/].

Please invite all your potentially Dorkbotish friends but don't repost this
announcement to other mailing lists, we'd like to avoid being overrun by
Ableton groupies :-) thanks.

...

Monthly dorkbot meetings are scheduled for 4pm the last Sunday of every
month (except December) so whack it in your diary now.

May the dork be with you.
