"One of the magical things about the School is its transportive power. It's like a hidden door into distant creative spaces. You can go from being curious about something to actually doing it within a month."

"The School of Machines is a traveling dreamland where artists, makers, technologists and creative whatevers can dig into a rotating roster of interdisciplinary topics, while developing practical skills and making new friends from around the world.

Thank you, Rachel, for your beautiful vision for building this inspiring and motivating community!"

"Doing the course 'The Neural Aesthetic' at School of Machines gave me the best introduction to machine learning I could imagine. The teachers were not only great at communicating their knowledge of the field, they were also pushing and defining it by providing tools for others to use. I already started using the techniques i learned in my daily work as interaction designer."

"The School of Machines opened a big door in my brain and now I work with things I never imagined I would, and never even liked. thank you! <3"

Deborah Rodrigues Moreira

"I've learned so much I'd not have ever imagined. Things that I secretly wanted to, but had no idea where to learn it or how. And I did projects I'd have never imagined before. And a project which I’ve been imagining for 4 years but had no clue how to even start. and it was done in a week here. Miracle."

"It was only after doing the School of Machines that I saw how far from ‘now’ my undergraduate in product design was. As an independent school it seemed uncensored in its ability to offer a plethora of practical skills and thinking. For me, it was a shortcut to the future."

Thomas O'Reilly

"As a visual communication undergrad, I'm constantly exposed to working with print and amongst designers who advocate the idea that #printisnotdead. I am interested in merging the practices of visual communication and new media, and was very happy to find the School of Machines, as it offers a unique and perfect place for me play with tech and art, and a starting point for me to branch out on skills that can help me to achieve my artistic goals."

"School of Machines does for coders what Josh Homme's desert sessions does for musicians. It reminds us why we started in the first place."

James Kneafsey

"I learnt so many things that cannot be summarized in a paragraph. but most importantly I learnt to appreciate art, how to use it as medium to change the way people think, inspire others and as a way to express yourself. also how technology can assist us to express the artistic and creative views of a non-artist like me."

"One of the things that I appreciated most was the utterly liberating atmosphere. Talking about ideas, associations, thoughts, sometimes related, sometimes unrelated to the projects, throughout the entire course was so special and created such a positive and fun environment."


Theresa Reimann-Dubbers

"School of Machines offers the time to explore and create projects that dive into deep questions about technology, how it affects us, and what it means for the world we live in. It fosters both creative and technical skills while still managing to be fun and lighthearted."

"The school of machines is a playground, Bootcamp, community centre, and lucid dream in equal parts. The mix of giving students, brilliant instructors with giant hearts, and visionary and thoughtful leadership made this exactly the art/tech education experience I've been trying to find for a long time."
