A collective Tie-Dye event where people can bring fabrics to be dyed. The aim is to connect everyday items to the theme of hacking by encouraging people to modify clothing beyond what the manufacturer originally intended. The process of tie-dying will be split into a series of CSS-like steps printed on paper sheets that participants can combine to formulate a style sheet for their tie-dye (similarly to fridge-magnet poems, where pre-printed words can be combined into a pome). Participants will then take on the role of a render/browser by executing each step of the dying process as if they were the CSS interpreter. At the end of the process, they will have "rendered" their own hacked t-shirt or another fabric item, which they can wear and keep as a souvenir of the event.
