In this art-technology workshop, Stefanie Wuschitz (Vienna) teams up with Lesley Flanigan (New York) to playfully demystify technology and open up an atmosphere where learning new technological tools is fearless, interesting and clear for women and trans artists.
Using a grab bag of materials that include graphite, plexiglass, conductive thread, recycled electronics, microcontrollers and various sensors, participants learn to create simple systems for interactive art by merging both digital and analog materials in fluid, poetic ways.
While participants are free to explore the tools and technologies at their own pace, we encourage them to ask many questions and share their knowledge with other workshop participants. We expect our participant’s energy to be equally spent on exploring new outlets for self expression as well as learning the basic technical skills used in making interactive technology.
We invite creative and curious women and trans ages 16 and up to join us for an intensive workshop this March at Labitat (H. C. Ørsteds Vej 5, 1879 Frederiksberg, CPH), an independent makerspace working with diverse individuals to bridge interactive technology with design and art. While previous programming experience is helpful, it is not required! The workshop will take place on March 22, 23, 24 all day. Participants are asked to commit their time fully on all three worshop days in order to contribute to the focused, creative working environment the experience fosters. Starting on the 24th you will be supported in making your own project for the exhibition.
On the evening of March 29th we will present all projects in small a public event. The freshly developed pieces will be on display to the public until the 31st of March 2013 at Science Friction (Sankt Hans Gade 26 a kld, 2200, CPH).
