Join us for a free film screening of Getting Up followed by a conversation on future technologies and how they will help us to reimagine user-centered accessible design.
Getting Up tells the story of graffiti artist TemptOne, who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), which left him almost completely physically paralyzed. In 2009, members of Free Art & Technology Lab, OpenFrameworks, the Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities teamed up to develop an open-source device called The EyeWriter that allowed TemptOne to once again create his art.
