how did that happen?
May saw the end of the spring semester here at CU Boulder, which also meant watching two of our undergraduate volunteers finish their degrees and move on to new things - we’ll miss them but we’re so excited for their next steps!
End of the semester also means that we’ve shifted to summer open house hours. We don’t have a fully stable schedule for summer, so the weekly open times will be updated every Monday on our social media accounts. Some weeks will have more availablity than others. If you are planning on visiting, make sure to check the week’s schedule. If you have a special visit request, feel free to email and we’ll do what we can to accomodate.
The most exciting part of May, though: Lori and libi spent two weeks as part of the teaching team for an intensive grad course titled “Mess and Method” at the Milieux Institute at Concordia. We worked with the lovely folks from our sister not-lab, the residual media depot, and a fantastic group of multi-disciplinary graduate students. The course focused on ideas of maintenance and repair, and we all did a zoom week of theory-based discussion and guest lectures, and then Lori and libi travelled to Montreal to do a week of hands-on thinking.
The resulting projects were FANTASTIC - the students divided into 5 groups to do projects around radio, solar-powered GameBoys, SuperNintendo output modifications, and Gestetner mimeograph restoration. Some pictures from our week below:
