imagining and inventing new mechanisms for interpreting the environment

Sensor HackLab proposes an art-making methodology where concept and aesthetics emerge through hands-on investigation of electricity and the materiality of technology. Here, we will focus on building devices and prototypes that consider alternative ways of sensing and responding to the environment. We aim to go beyond the capabilities of consumer electronics made to measure the world by imagining technology that connects us to the environment (and the environment to us) in adventurous ways.

This course takes a bottom-up approach to the electronic medium through techniques such as deconstruction; experimental circuit design; pattern recognition and reverse-engineering. By employing processes that make the hidden inner world of machines accessible, it also seeks to critique the economic systems embedded throughout electronic media and its impact on humans and nature.

This course is best suited for students that have already taken an introduction to electronics course with the instructor.

Sensor HackLab schlägt den Pfad einer Kunstmethodik ein, aus der Konzept und Ästhetik aus einer haptischen Untersuchung voN Elektronik und der Materialität von Technik erwächst. Wir konzentrieren uns hier darauf Geräte und Prototypen zu bauen die alternative Möglichkeiten bereitstellen die Umwelt zu erfahren und darauf zu reagieren. Wir zielen darauf ab uns auf ein Abenteuer einzulassen die Grenzen und Möglichkeiten von Geräten, die gemacht sind die Welt zu quantifizieren, hinter uns zu lassen in dem wir Technologien entwickeln die uns mit der Umwelt (und die Umwelt mit uns) verbinden.

Dieser Kurs basiert auf einem bottom-up Ansatz sich dem elektronischen Medium durch Dekonstruktivismus, experimentellem Schaltungsdesign, Erkennen von Mustern und Reverseengineering zu nähern. Der Kurs strebt auch nach einer Kritik in wirtschaftlichen Systemen integrierter elektronischer Medien und deren Einfluss auf Menschheit und Natur mittels Prozessen, die die verborgenen inneren Welten von Maschinen offenbaren.
