SURVEYANCE: CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
WORKSHOP


as part of their residency at the transmediale festival Jamie Allen & David Gauthier, set a series of workshops around the themes "Critical Infrastructure": public events leading to an artwork for transmediale 2014 afterglow.

 

CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE unearths the undergiring of media technics, as a ‘media archeology of the present’ — understanding the post-digital as not just horizontal and temporally but material, stratal, and vertical — infra-digital and infra-technical.
 

 

WORKSHOP FOR NONINVASIVE SENSING OF SUBSYSTEMS
 

systems get built on top of systems (that get built). they interrogate the regimes of visibility and invisibility in art and technological making. how do we render present the substrates, the substructures, the undergirding of the complex informational, energetic, percolating frameworks 'beneath our feet.' 

 

for the workshop non-invasive and non-contact sensing in the environment around the workshop is be planned - participants will learn and discuss these technologies and their potentials, and take part in a 'mapping exercise' of Berlin's streetscape in order to seek out points where systems can be made to leak material and information.

 

START: 2:00 pm
 

PARTICIPANTS/NUMBER: approximately 10-15 participants.

 

PARTICIPANT NOTES:
 

base technologies include Arduino and Rapsberry Pi's although no prior experience of either is necessary - please come and discuss!  bring a laptop and an open mind. the workshop is free but a deposit is required to register a place. you'll get your money back when you show up on november 16TH.
