A project about DIY cultures and bricolage strategies in electronic art and media.
Interest and research of artists in new technologies has repeatedly led to fascinating experiments with productive results. No wonder this is also true in times of everyday use of computers, analog and digital electronic media.
The HOME MADE LABOR ("home made lab") takes form in a variety of formats:
Since spring 2005, closed as well as public workshops are being organized. The former offer artists and tinkerers a platform for professional exchange, sharing knowledge and ideas, and collaboration; the latter are open to a broader public (a.o. encompassing courses for kids and young people). In both cases, the results are presented to the public.
These lab activities taking place in real space are being accompanied by continuous research and networking activities (see a.o. the list of related events and publications), documented in the HOME MADE LABOR : WEBLOG.
HOME MADE is a project initiated by Migros-Kulturprozent — Direktion Kultur und Soziales/"science + future"; head: Dominik Landwehr.
