Playful Spaces Workshop

Art on Wires Festival, Oslo, 2010

We will toy with the constraints & ressources of gadgetry and modify it for some "artistic" purpose

In this workshop we will show you how to modify gadgets and how to turn them from plain nuisance to a tool of glitchy, noisy awesomeness. The techniques shown are pretty easy -- even for the unexperienced in electronics. All you need is to be willing to make mistakes, repeatedly pop batteries in and out in order to reset things after crashing the processor, and a desire to make cool new stuff.
