Fresh from her world premiere collaboration with Pinquins the night before, artist Kjersti Alm Eriksen leads a workshop for children and their parents. Kjersti’s work centres around analogue machines and the way that they embrace failure or imperfection. For Borealis she’ll be leading you through the construction of sound making machines – centred around a small motor that drives a DIY kinetic machine that can make sound in different ways, using every day objects like tin-cans, cardboard and tin foil etc. Each participant will get to take their little machine home with them, with the potential to expand it or use it in different ways outside of the workshop, opening ears and minds to the potential of all sounds and objects to create art.
