call for participation!
come come come to a workshop around gebauede::a building and
the building is the schokofabrik in dresden, a workplace for students,
which calls to be modified, hacked, augmented transformed.
the organism is something you will discover, something we want to construct.
come come come and play with low-tech sensor- and motor-modules,
interconnect them, install them into the schokofabrik, enable the building
to sense and (re)act.
come come come and bring what you think, you need to construct an organism.
sensory modules are light sensors, sound sensors, touch sensors, switches,
internet remote sensors (peoples keyboards and mouses),
motor modules are tiny gearmotors, 220-Volt plugs switchable with 5 V
signals, little led-matrices, computer displays, loudspeakers, webpages,
interconnections can be colored cables, thresholding units, oscillators,
can an organism or an organic building emerge out of the construction and
installation of these modules ?
will this building behave or misbehave?
come come come and rethink concepts of architecture, rethink the relation
of human and housing: do people need houses or do houses need people?
rethink the concept of workplace and space of presence.
during 4 days we will colaborate on prototypes and and create durable
installations in and around the schokofabrik building, which will
ultimately transform the place. then we will have a party and leave this
new space to its users and the public.
