Tim O'Rourke

Tim O’Rourke has spent the last 35 years involving young people in Designing and Making in schools and colleges and from 2000 to 2015 he was a senior lecturer in Design and Technology at Bath Spa University.

Tim’s particular interest within mechanical art is the power source; we have all been quick to abandon older technologies in favour of the three-pin plug but are there other viable sources of power out there that make mechanical art a more accessible artform for young people to experiment with?

With a background in musical instruments and furniture it is no surprise to see that Tim’s work often leans towards the aesthetic possibilities of well finished wood

The MAD Museum will be closing at 4pm on Thursday 21st September 2017.
