Re-imagining Smart

Cover placeholder.jpg

This two-day workshop will explore the subject of autonomy in a networked world. Like castaways stranded in a post-Google society, we will attempt to design, build and program our own devices and appliances - using relic open source software, silicon from the waste of the smartphone industry, and post-consumer composite materials to give them shape.

The objects can be critical, funny, or genuinely useful. Containing our own software sketches (written in Processing) in their cores, and working either solitarily or in a (local-) networked fashion, they are meant to give us comfort in the times when we feel a sense of loss for our watchful corporate overlords.
