ALVISO'S MEDICINAL ALL-SALT

Are you feeling depressed? Sick of paying exorbitant rates for birth control? Try Alviso’s Medicinal All-Salt - harvested locally at the 01SJ Biennial.

All-Salt is a unique low-dosage cocktail of our most commonly used drugs, all brought together in one simple salt remedy. Our process harvests two popular commodities, sea salt and recycled pharmaceuticals from water treatment plants, to produce All-Salt: a medicinal salt for every condition, hand harvested and sun dried for purity.

At the 01SJ Biennial, All-Salt founders will build and operate on-site salt evaporation ponds, offer up samples of their fine product, provide tours of South San Francisco Bay harvesting waters and industrial salt ponds, and provide information on the medicinal bounty supplied by the yet-unregulated pharmaceutical disposal industry. http://www.all-salt.com

These events are for: Anyone curious, all ages.

URBAN PROGRAMMING 101: STAGE DIRECTIONS
discussion with Taeyoon Choi

Saturday, September 18, 2:30-4PM

In this performative lecture and discussion Taeyoon Choi and invited artists will examine ideas presented in Taeyoon's new project 'Urban Programming 101: Stage Directions'. Excerpt text from the book: "There is a logical system in which urban spaces operate; therefore it is understood as a 'program'. 'Programming' urban space means controlling your urban experience and producing your space...I realized producing an alternative space is indifferent to experimenting alternative politics. I'd like to take you on a journey of thinking creatively and critically about urban space, hoping there still is a space for intervention and creative community." www.urbanprogram.info

This lecture + discussion is for: Anyone curious, teen–adult

/// Ticket Machine Makeathon! ///

Drop-in anytime during these hours:
September 15, 12-8PM
September 16, 9AM-5PM

James Stone - a new media artist with research in robotics and physical computing - is joining the Roadshow team to work with us to finish Kaho Abe's Ticket Machine.

The Ticket Machine is a collaborative Rube Goldberg installation which starts with a coin drop and ends with a receipt-printer that prints out a ticket; between the coin and the printer are any number of electronically or mechanically triggered elements. Collaborators will create each element of the Rube Goldberg machine, that is triggered by the machine before it and will trigger the machine after it - the only rule is that the machine has to reset itself. The workshop will use simple sensors, triggers, and recycled machine parts, and the Arduino Mega to connect all the machine elements.

We are looking for tinkerers, hackers, engineers, and designers to wrap this puppy up. Some experience with physical computing and machine hacking required. Teams of 2 or 3 can sign up together, in which case, only one team member has to understand the hacking components. We expect an team of two will need at least 4hours to complete a project.
