Deep in their basements, in their garages and underground, a movement has begun. A reprise of nerds, hackers and scientists have been gathering together to share and create 'strange things with electricity'. By day these are office workers, pencil pushers and professionals but by night they come alive; mashing together ideas of art and science into Frankenstein creations. They are transformed into Dorkbots .

All over the world these groups have been gathering to foster a love of interdisciplinary creations'. In Sydney we have witnessed such amazing projects as destructive robots, light scythes and non-Newtonian fluids. Now it's time to showcase some of the best and dorkiest projects. In this, the 4th annual Dorkbot group show there will be a new take on the classic snake game from MPU, electronic sound art and biofeedback devices for your dorkish pleasure.
But Dorkbot is not about  showing-off. It's about getting people together with a love of experimental and interdisciplinary art. So in the spirit of Dorkbot, spark a conversation or share an idea at the group show and embrace your inner dork.
