When billboards and advertising screens are the first to be unplugged after earthquakes, it again becomes evident, how those are only being used for commercial content. How can screens and media façades then become platforms for artistic and cultural interventions in urban space?
To remind us that the Internet can exist without centralized control, INTK has created unCloud, an application that enables anyone with a laptop to create an open wireless network and distribute their own information.
This workshop is a tool for artists who wish to go beyond common usage of these mobile-controlled consumption interfaces on the Kindle and iPhone—and for anyone interested in what is happening underneath these surfaces.
Local Autonomy Networks (Autonets) is an artivist project focused on creating networks of communication to increase community autonomy and reduce violence against women, LGBTQI people, people of color and other groups who continue to survive violence on a daily basis.
Using e-waste as raw material, the workshop offers participants to become familiar with basic circuit bending, hardware and software hacking/recycling while gaining hands-on experience making an interactive art project at the same time.
Any kind of media installation based on electronic systems or micro-controllers requires some sort of printed circuit board (PCB). To get a PCB one has to manufacture them. Paperboards or PaperPCBs are a smart way to spare you the trouble. In the workshop Wolfgang Spahn will teach how to create and modify PaperPCBs. At the end of the workshop every participant will have designed and built his or her own Paperduino-Uno.
