Sew your own computer, an IT and textiles DIY workshop

Thursday 8th Dec, Digital Urban Living and DARCDARC hosted a DIY workshop on textiles and IT, featuring DIVA artist in residence Valerie LamontagneValerie Lamontagne.


Danish description (the CfP) of the workshop can be found on DARC's website herehere. During this full day of sewing, knitting, coding, soldering and concept development, 15 lucky workshop applicants were invited to inhabit the soon-to-be-opened Digital Design Lab at Aarhus University. Here, several quickly made prototypes showed how one might use soft materials to experiment with current and future life with digital objects.

The workshop will be followed by more workshops in the future as soft materials will be one of several technologies available for experiments in the DD Lab. Furthermore, one or more of the prototypes will be further developed with the aim to integrate them into one of the DUL-events at the upcoming 1700th Century Festival in Aarhus (Danish description of the festival).
