After consumerism world collapsed, a reapropriation of our electronic devices and our human bodies becomes necessary. A virus has attacked all new generation computers, smartphones, tablets with most features becoming unusable.  This series of 4x3hrs workshops looks at how to reconnect with your machine from an embodied awareness.

  • Terminal poetics : We start communicating with our electronics and with each other. What can we do ?
  • Attent !on som(t)a(c)tics : With the micro movements of our bodies when using our devices, we improvise and explore forms of embodied emancipation within a digital context.
  • Electromagnetic computer music : The radiation of our devices is transformed into noise. By operating basic software, computer music happens in the most literal, physical sense.
  • Meditation with computer : Mindfulness technics will connect the processes at work in our minds with our computer processes.
