The Luminous Green hands-on workshop has been conceived for artists and designers using electricity in their work. The tutorial will focus on the following topics: power generation, renewable power sources, low-power computing and audiovisual displays. The workshop will be lead by Slovenian artist Marko Peljhan and attended by Belgian and international artists and designers from the 1st until the 4th May 2007. The workshop will end with an Open lab, a participatory event where an interested audience can meet the participants, chew over their experiments, relax and learn, play and chat in the informal setting of the FoAM studio.
Workshop Leader: Marko Peljhan
Marko is the coordinator of ‘Project Atol’, ‘Makrolab’, as well as ‘Insular Technologies’, a high-frequency global radio network initiative.
