Workshop 2: Hybrid Scrapyard with Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki
The workshop will introduce how ubiquitous computing (Ubicomp) and
network technologies allow the design and deployment of augmented
objects connected to the Internet. We will address how the Internet
and our online behaviors can be made tangible in the physical world
and how our physical acts have roles, presence or consequences in the
Workshop attendees learn how to build a variety of projects from
found and/or discarded objects which will be augmented with embedded
computing and connected to the Internet or configured iinto network
of communicating objects.

Fee: 100 EUR
Maximum Participants: 15
Location: iMAL, Brussels
An "Internet-of-Things" is under construction with technologies for
unique digital identification (RFID), geolocation (GPS), embedded
computing (ubiquitous or pervasive computing) and mobile networking
(e.g. wifi, wimax, umts/3g). Places and objects become linked to
digital media which can be everywhere people are.
Our digital life and social interactions are going to happen through
tangible augmented objects and our physical environment will become
the playground of new social and artistic behaviors, interventions,
actions both in data and media spaces.
"New Brave World" proposes 4 workshops exploring the roles of
artists, designers, media makers and creative scientists/developers
in this context of the merge of digital and physical spaces.
