dorkbot pittsburgh: January 24, 2008, 7:30-9:30pm

dorkbot pittsburgh meets upstairs at Brillobox, the event is open to the general public, non-smoking, and admission is free. See Events for full details and directions.

We have two speakers for this month:

Jennifer Gooch (seen above in the piece “An Attempt to Blow Myself Up) is a multimedia artist interested in our attempt to, and inability to, connect. Interested in “mediated exchange” – how people use technology and other means of mediation to interact – Gooch’s work often looks at mediation, the mediated, and the awkward space between. She is currently working on her web and community based project,, “a site for the collection and hopeful reunion of Pittsburgh’s dropped gloves.” A banjo-toting singer from Dallas, Gooch received her B.F.A. in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Arlington and is currently a M.F.A. candidate in Studio Art at CMU.

Richard Tuttle joined the Plextronics team in July of 2007 and has been working as a Formulator in the Inks & Applications group during that time. He is a 2006 graduate of the University of Akron with a M.S. in Physics. While at Akron, he was part of a research team that studied the processing and applications of electrospun ceramic fibers. This team researched the effect of variables such as humidity, temperature, precursor concentration, collection procedure, voltage, and annealing conditions on the formation of polymer/ceramic composite fibers. He also holds B.S in Physics from Muskingum College.
