Miss Baltazar's Lab workshops in Christiania – Copenhagen April 2013 – only women and trans

A3FlyerMzB

In a three-day workshop we will hack hardware, make noise and produce stencils with open-source software. We will ask a lot of “dumb” questions and also develop technology together to accomplish an artistic project. No expert is required for participants. We want to share our knowledge and equipment and use the opensource tools of technology to express ouservelves in a new way. Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory offers to women and trans the opportunity to acquire skills in electronics and programing to realize interactive projects. The workshops will be held on Fridays at 15h in Maelkeboetten/ Christiania.

12.04.2013 at 15h

maria_workshop

Ma soeur cent têtes is a gender-feminist street-art project. Maria Hera collected biographies of women who did interesting things in the past/future, made stencils out of their portraits and sprayed it in public space. Every stencil is basically provided with a bar- or QR-code witch leads to the wiki- or website of the shown woman.

The workshop is structured in the following way: depending to possibilities a viewing of the stencils on location or online is intended. Hereby the intention and concept are presented. In the second part the participants can learn the technic, according to individual interests, by creating self-chosen females or by cutting all ready existing stencils and spray them. The workshop empowers the participants to realize individual ideas or participate as a multiplicator in the process of publishing the women heroes.

This workshop aims to introduce the basics of electronics, focusing on what is essential for exploiting the open source Arduino platform and therefore to build things using different kinds of in and out-puts. We propose a relaxed approach and we aim to provide a pleasant environment for exploring, playing with the tools and above all having fun!

Christine Schörkhuber – The beauty of distorsion visual generation without laptop

26.04.2013 at 15h

chris_workshop

This workshop provides features to create visuals without the use of a laptop. In a playful way the powerful technical “magic box” is demystified and hacked.

Electric disturbance signals generated by Audio Signals are used to create abstract video landscapes. To open up cables and learn how to modify the signals is a first insight into the operating mode of signal transmission and basic electronics.

“Beauty of distorsion” is a glitch art project on the intersection of Video Art, Sound Art and Literature.

 

With thanks to our Founding Partners: Statens Kunstrad Danish Arts Council & Osterreichische Botschaft in Copenhagen who have made this workshop series possible.

Switch On, Switch Off

WORKSHOP:  ‘Switch On, Switch Off’,
 a creative workshop for people who shy away from technology

with Joëlle Bitton (FRANCE)

WHEN: Friday 01.06.2012, at 2pm – 6 pm (you  can drop by at any point)

WHERE: PUBLIC SPACE “HOF 7” in Museumsquartier, Innenhof, neben Architekturzentrum Wien


Switch On Switch Off is a workshop on the basics of digital interaction in the physical world. Participants hack their bodies and their environment, turning them into the switches that activate and inactivate simple electronic circuits. A team of artists and designers guide them as they try and invent creative interactive gestures.

For beginners and pros

Switch On Switch Off is a interaction workshop for people of all ages, from all backgrounds, including absolute beginners and people who typically shy away from technologies. The main idea is to keep it simple —  not simplistic. More advanced practitioners can also get a lot from the simplicity of the workshop, being able to quickly iterate and try things. The constraint of  a very simple building block is in fact liberating, as you concentrate on the gestures and the scenario.

Bio
Joëlle is a new media artist, a human-computer interaction researcher and a traveller. She looks at the creative uses of technology and their potential social impact in the ‘Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy” (SiDE) research program at Culture Lab, Newcastle University. She pursued similar questions at Media Lab Europe in Dublin, between 2002 and 2005, in the research group “Human Connectedness”, with the projects “RAW” and “Passages”.
She co-founded in 2000 in Vienna an experimental collective “`Superficiel” in support of works that explore, among other things, the ideas of surface, screen, and body movement as interfaces.
In 1999, Joelle holds a postgraduate degree from the University of Sorbonne in History of Techniques. Her thesis, “Les Machines de l’Imaginaire” describes the impact of emerging technologies and networks on the 19th century European society.
She also co-organises Dorkbot Paris events.
