Artist Taeyoon Choi is one of the co-founders of school for poetic computation in New York, exploring the intersections of code, design, hardware and theory, focusing especially on artistic intervention. Their motto is: more poetry, less demo. In this exploratory workshop you will be able to build your own 1bit computer, and understand electronics and computer science by demystifying computational technology. Taeyoon will playfully ask us to consider what it would be like if our computers were handcrafted with love, much like the early home-brew computers from the 60s, but for today’s needs. What kind of hardware and software will we be able to create by manual labour in the future? And can this alternative vision help us understand our relationship with everyday technology? What can we do with very little computational power?
