We Make Machines Not Art I This is a rigorous introduction to the world of Do-It-Yourself Electronics (Elektronikbasteln). "We Make Machines Not Art I" proposes an art-making methodology where concepts and aesthetics emerge through hands-on investigation of the materiality of technology. By employing processes such as deconstruction; experimental circuit construction and reverse-engineering, this course seeks to critique the economic systems embedded throughout electronic technology and investigate how this impacts humans and nature.
We Make Machines Not Art II This is an advanced course in Do-It-Yourself Electronics for students who have successfully completed "We Make Machines Not Art I" ("formerly Machines of Perception"). It builds on techniques and concepts from the previous course and focuses specifically on sound, electromechanics and fabrication techniques. This course proposes an approach to art-making where concepts and aesthetics emerge through a bottom up approach to the electronic medium and looks at how this methodology resonates with broader themes in individual practices.
