About Make x Art

“The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.”
----- John Lasseter, PIXAR

Make x Art is a brand new concept developed by Makeblock with the aim of promoting STEAM education by showcasing the people and projects found at the intersection of technology and art. When creativity combines with mechanics, electronics and even objects found in daily life, it often results in unheard of inventions.

We believe that the future of education is the combination of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, with the Arts – STEAM education. Learners, educators, artists and makers are invited join our initiative and show off their artwork, exhibitions, classes or workshops.

From artist to artist, an experienced software engineer integrated his technical knowledge of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) into a compact music box, and programmed the notes from “Canon and Gigue in D”. The reason behind the selection was from one of the most impressive Korean movies that he saw in the early days, “My Sassy Girl”. Through the simulation of this classical piece, he wished that more people could enjoy and interact with this music box, a combination of music, arts and technology.
