Lifehack

Last Thursday we had the third workshop of the Electronic Knitting Circle; a series of workshops investigating art and technology.

The workshop “Lifehack” investigated how the principles and tenets of hacker ethic could be applied through the Hands-On Imperative on a much wider scale that just within digital systems. Hackers believe that essential lessons can be learned about the systems—about the world—from taking things apart, seeing how they work, and using this knowledge to create new and more interesting things.

Within the workshop we applied this strategy to what is presumed to be trash and obsolete products, trying to discover more divergent functions beyond their original purpose.
