Getting Up

This 2012 documentary profiles renowned graffiti artist Tempt One, who loses his creative voice after sustaining amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. In 2009, Mick Ebeling and his Not Impossible Foundation brought a motley crew of international hackers and artists to Los Angeles to invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that allows Tempt to once again create art, using the only part of his body that still moves: his eyes.

After months of harrowing trial and error, EyeWriter was born and Tempt was once again able to exercise his creative muscle.

When:   5:30 - 8:30pm Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
  
Where: Cambridge Public Library
                   449 Broadway, Cambridge

The nerve disease ALS left graffiti artist TEMPT paralyzed from head to toe, forced to communicate blink by blink. Entrepreneur Mick Ebeling shares how he and a team of collaborators built an open-source invention that gave the artist -- and gives others in his circumstance -- the means to make art again.

Mick Ebeling is founder of The Ebeling Group, an international production company and creative think tank, representing some of the world's leading design and directing collectives.
