The DIY Networks workshop is oriented towards electronic artists with a
special interest in the possibilities of approaching technologies
beyond the paradigm of control. Participants are invited to build their
own artistic micro experiments and perform hardware and network
hacking. The focus will be on sustainable, customised, wearable,
networked instruments and sound ecologies.
Notions of control versus influence will be discussed in relation to
technology, in a context where unknown histories of technology will be
re-created. The work of philosophers such as Lyotard and Guattari will
be introduced during four days of experimentation with sound, sensor
technology and networks. Participants will work in collaboration with
an exciting mix of musicians and DIY practitioners.
The workshop is theoretically complemented by the Critical
Ecosystems seminar on Thursday 12 from 10:00 to 13:00hrs.
