Bio-Fi: DIY Data Hijacking by Matt Kenyon and Doug Easterly

Date: 25 July
Time: 9am - 3pm
Venue: Republic Polytechnic, Fabrication Lab
Capacity: 15 persons

This workshop is designed as a hands-on workshop that combines data mining and data visualization expressly for the creation of artworks. Firstly, it will introduce the participants to real-time data mining. Then, participants will construct wearable computing appliances that will explore the poetics and politics of data visualization. Bring your notebooks and laptops, we provide everything else.

This workshop is most recent in a series of physical computing workshops by Doug Easterly, Assistant Professor at Victoria University of Wellington’s Department of Architecture and Design, and Matt Kenyon, Assistant Professor of New Media at Penn State University.

Luminous Green : Reflecting on the role of the arts, design and technology in an environment of turbulence

Date: 31 July
Time: 10am to 9pm
Venue: Singapore Management University, School of Information Systems, Level 5 Function Room

A workshop about a possible future; about a human world, that is enlightened, imaginative, electrified and most importantly – living in a fertile symbiosis with the planet. One of the series of gatherings, initiated by FoAM (Belgium) calling on the creative sector to enrich the public debate around environmental sustainability, ethical living, eco-technology and design. The workshop encourages transdisciplinary discussions and collaborations between people from all walks of life, including artists, designers, academics, activists, social entrepreneurs, economists and policy-makers. What lifestyles and systems can we envisage beyond the status quo? Is there anything that we can learn from existing social experiments, arts, design and technology, to help us make our systems less fragile and unstable? Or vice-versa – what can artists and designers learn from the way policy and business approach the environment? Collaborative creation, open source technology, distributed play, mixing realities, and locating media become tools to transform our wasteful consumer-society into more inclusive, entangled and participatory cultures. The objective is to explore these questions by spawning inspiring contacts and propositions, holistic methods and interventions, looking beyond conservation and sustainability. Using participatory facilitation techniques based on OST (Open Space Technology) and ARG (Alternate Reality Gaming), the workshop is designed to encourage interaction and commitment.
