By attending a 3D tour of And Now the Good News: Works from the Nobel Collection exhibition, which features over 400 works by 164 artists who have used a variety of media, such as painting, photography, collage, drawing, installation, and video, participants have the opportunity to view the most important periods of modern and contemporary art. Then, under the guidance of Bager Akbay, an artist known for his many works on physical interaction, artificial intelligence and art, we attend a workshop on the Scratch platform. Using visuals, texts or sounds we have produced or found elsewhere, we code our own work of art, deriving inspiration from some of the Dadaist work that captured our attention in the exhibition.
