What is the Monster Project?
Kids draw monsters, then artists from all over the world recreate them in their own styles! We hope to help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.
Behold! Over 100 monsters created by kids and artists from all over the world! A huge thanks to the kids for dreaming up these crazy creatures and another to our artists for making them come to life.
The 2016 Monster Gallery
How is it done?
"We simply invite Elementary students to draw monsters. Once their creations have taken shape, we bring them to life in our own artistic styles.
Then, when we deliver these new interpretations back to the students in person, we are able to demonstrate new art techniques within their original creative context.
They are able to see what their idea sparked in others."

Katie Johnosn is speaking
Katie: A huge part of the project is sharing the importance of art education. Schools are continuing to undervalue art ed and are increasingly cutting art out of their budgets. It's happening in the school districts we work with–it's happening everywhere. I get emails from New Zealand, Canada, Germany–all saying they see it in their schools, too. The more people who hear our message, the more support art education has.

Patterned UV coating on glass is invisible to humans—but not to birds...
Each day, more than 250,000 birds in Europe die from collisions with glass windows—and annual estimates in the U.S. run into the millions.
Birds either don’t see the glass, or they see reflections—of trees, for example—in the glass that make them fly into it.
In an attempt to reduce the number of fatal bird strikes, the German company Arnold Glas developed a new kind of insulated glass with a patterned UV coating that mimics how spiders keep birds from flying into their webs (Inspired by orb weaver spiders Araneidae], one of the largest families of spiders).
The special reflective coating appears almost transparent to humans but is clearly visible to birds because they can see UV light.
Some species also incorporate UV-reflective silk strands into their webs, creating so-called decorations to attract insects and to distract or warn larger animals, including birds. This helps prevent the destruction of the spider’s web and its temporary loss of ability to capture prey.
Independent field testing by Dr. Hans-Willy Ley from the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology showed that 76 percent of birds avoided the Ornilux panel and instead flew toward the conventional glass panel.
Roboticist Angelica Lim programmes robots to be more human - what happened when she brought one home?
Jenny Brusk didn't know what she was letting herself in for when she enrolled in a university Masters course in computing in 1990.
She went on to become Sweden's first female games developer but she was often mistaken for the company receptionist. The experience made her stronger. She says, "rather than go hide somewhere in the office I would fill my space".
Jenny is now researching how game characters can be made more psychologically realistic by using natural speech, gossip and lies. She is also the founder of DONNA, an organisation which aims to attract more women into the games industry.
Roboticist Angelica Lim is a self-professed 'geek' who programmes robots to have more 'human' traits, like compassion and empathy.
She has lived, baked biscuits and made music with a robot, all in the name of research.
The goal is creating the perfect companion robot which might provide help and therapy to the elderly or provide assistance at home to anyone.
At some points when she was sharing her home with the robot, Angelica found herself questioning the relationship asking, "is it my servant or is it my kid?"... URL

“the upper story wall, casting a shadow on the wall and mimicking many of Dali’s works. The foyer is adjacent to the piano room featuring Attente, a trompe”
“Various surrealist touches, such as a painting by Matta, and furniture bySalvador Dali and Antonio Gaudi, add a touch of humor to a formally rigorous design”

Sam Van Aken, an artist and professor at Syracuse University, uses "chip grafting" to create trees that each bear 40 different varieties of stone fruits, or fruits with pits.
The grafting process involves slicing a bit of a branch with a bud from a tree of one of the varieties and inserting it into a slit in a branch on the "working tree," then wrapping the wound with tape until it heals and the bud starts to grow into a new branch.
Over several years he adds slices of branches from other varieties to the working tree. In the spring the "Tree of 40 Fruit" has blossoms in many hues of pink and purple, and in the summer it begins to bear the fruits in sequence—Van Aken says it's both a work of art and a time line of the varieties' blossoming and fruiting.
He's created more than a dozen of the trees that have been planted at sites such as museums around the U.S., which he sees as a way to spread diversity on a small scale.

This workshop is part of the Transformer project and was done in collaboration with Marcel Bilow/Buckylab and Ulrich Knaack/Facade Research Group.
Utopian yet practical
The Transformer project is one of the most utopian and at the same time one of the most practical projects of the Why Factory. It is based on a hypothetical material.
Various research institutions are busy with the idea of programmable matter.
But it is unlikely that such a material will be available for large-scale usage within the coming ten or twenty years. At the same time, the Transformer includes very practical, scientific strategies in the field of ergonomics, interactive design and negotiation which are related to furniture, building and urban design.

Better Poster is a resource for improving poster presentations.
Academic conference posters are often ugly, with tiny text, confusing layouts, and dubious colour schemes. Better Posters is about making posters informative and beautiful...
► Highly Supportive with Guidance:
► Do's and Don'ts of Poster Presentation
► Bonus I: Publish your poster with the Faculty of 1000 Poster
F1000Posters, an open access repository, provides a permanent, structured environment for the deposition of posters and slide presentations as well as a trustworthy venue for ongoing discussion and development of the information being presented.
The early scientific information presented in conference presentations is universally agreed to be an important resource but, unfortunately, it is almost always completely lost once a conference is over.
The system of removing work from view after a conference is over represents a vast loss to the scientific community of unique and potentially valuable information.
