Around the globe there is a movement of small, autonomous functioning
groups with a similar goal: offering
artists/programmers/engineers/geeks an opportunity for informal peer
review; establish a forum for the presentation of new art
works/technology/software/hardware; help establish relationships and
foster collaboration between people with various backgrounds and
interests. This movement is called Dorkbot and on April 6th we started
up in Eindhoven and on June 8th it continues.

PRESENTATIONS/PERFORMANCES (in dutch)

art, science and technology, and since 2004 he has been working at his
own studio in Dordrecht on a project about time movement. The project
is based on the Paso's of Spain and South America during the week
before Easter, the Semana Santa. This is the walk in which several men
carry a big statue of the Virgin Mary through the streets of the city.
Michiel will be presentings his own project studying the 'Paso
carriers' with the goal of building a (real-size) Paso that can be
carried through the streets independently by 4 robots (Xavier, Pepe,

Paso-carriers.
