We will discuss about open source culture as well as projects such as 'the cybernetic artworld' project, where bots exist and interact with identica, the free micro-blogging site. The series of shareable DIY ‘readymades’ - Iconic objects from art history, appropriating and remixing art recreated as 3D digital, open sourced physically printed models. 'Urinal' is the first in this series http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6261

Katrin Baumgarten, a designer & technology artist whose work experiments with physical human experiences. Kristin will share how a spectrum of emotions can impact industrial design and user interaction. "Today, designers concentrate just on pleasant emotions— the beautiful and slick— but paradoxical emotions can actually intensify the relationship between object & user. One of these is disgust (http://katrinbaumgarten.de/project/my-work). It especially triggered my interest because of the strong link between attraction and repulsion, which is something we are scared to admit once we grow up." http://katrinbaumgarten.de

Also showcasing music and noise, providing a rolling lineup of experimental creative adventures for your amusement.
