From 21st to the 26th of May i´m invited to the first part of the researchlab-project „Behind the smart World„. Founded by Artists Andreas Zingele and Linda Kronman (knows as the collaboration KairUs.org) and hosted at the „Research.radical-openness„, the research lab from the “Art Meets Radical Openness Festival”, in Linz (AT).
In 2014 Andreas and Linda bought 22 hard drives from the world biggest e-waste dumb, Agbogbloshie in Accra, Ghana. Now they invited nine European artists to work with the recovered data from those hard drives. At the end of the Artlab in May 2015 first prototypes will be shown and a selection of the works will be presented at the Art Meets Radical Openness Festival in 2016.
It will be interesting to work with lost data. Maybe they will tell their own stories like the lost Super 8 material.
