Making as method for Openness, Flow and Co-creation

Together with my colleagues Emöke Bada, Berit Janssen and Inge Ploum from the Digital Art Lab Project, I presented a workshop at ISEA2011 in Istanbul. With the Weird/Wonderful Fair we want to direct our attention to openness, flow and co-creation. We invite the local residents of Istanbul to explore with us in a mixture of interactive workshop, intervention and collective art piece.


The city as open space classroom for mobile peer-teaching

The Fair attempts to transgress the conference’s boundaries and incorporate the city’s public space, transforming the streets of Istanbul into an open space classroom. Instead of the conventional teacher-student approach which still dominates our educational systems, we propose a mobile peer-teaching format, a more subversive structure where we can use simple DIY projects to facilitate insights. Workshops included: Vibrobert, Electronic Whistle developed by Berit Janssen (see video below) and Invisible Ink.
