Katherine and I just got back from our workshop “Hybrid World Scrapyard Challenge at IMAL in Brussels. We spent 5 days there working with participants to build networked projects out of scrap and junk. Below are some pictures of projects that were built and also check out more images on Flickr – link here.


Internet controlled “City Scape” with illuminating campfires and earthquake simulation


“Reconstructed Tape Deck Mixer” – with web-based sample setting controls.


Wearable wireless image switching and sound sample triggers via web input.


“Network Controlled Cadillac Turntable Drum Machine”


“Tripod Beat Machine”

Overall some really nice projects built in the short time frame. We had a small exhibition/presentation on the last day for people to check out what was built! Thanks to IMAL and everyone who participated in the workshop!
