Re-appropriating tools for new purposes, making inventive hardware projects, such as his Feedback video log, Strobo VJ machine or PCB hand painted circuit board, is what Gijs Gieskes enjoys most.
makers are re-inventing the design and function of ubiquitous
consumer electronics devices by creating hybrid systems and
artifacts with extended uses.
Educated as an industrial designer, he now casts Gameboy Bricks in concrete to build a garden path or a spinning photoelectronic acid machine. Gieskes’ work and live
performances are a fantastic example of where hardware hacking can take you.
