Maker Monday is powered by STEAMhouse, a new centre for innovation and creation. Uniting talented people from different backgrounds in the arts, science, technology, engineering and maths – the STEAM sectors – to bring amazing new ideas to life. Artist-researcher Rosa Cisneros was invited to be part of Maker Monday on the 1st of February, where she discussed her dance and digital practice, EU projects and her activism work. She was joined by Piali Ray and Sabra Khan from Sampad and the guests reflected on the intersections of creative and digital methods. Along with the guest speakers and host, they were also joined by the STEAMhouse team and academics.
Rosa discussed the Random String residency, which developed digital shadow puppets drawing on the Turkish shadow puppetry traditions and showed a dance film SAETA the Mourning and mentioned TRUCE, which was recently screened in Italy and France at the “Over The Real - Festival International of Videoarte”.
