DIY-Festival Zürich



diy* — Art and Technology Festival
Friday 5th until Sunday 7th December 2008, Zurich
* do it together, the culture of collaborative art-making
Exhibition, concerts, talks, workshops and a juried prize: the festival of Making Art is being held for the 4th time and is once again conceived as a transdisciplinary platform for those who aren’t satisfied with commercial products and artwork, as well as people who prefer to tailor their tools by themselves to fit their own wishes.
The venue is Dynamo and its open workshops in the center of the city of Zurich. The festival is being organized by the Swiss Mechatronic Art Society, SGMK, in partnership with the Cycle Opérant art collective.
Amongst other artists matchees is going to show how to built oscillators (inspired by Nic Collins) in a walk-in workshop. We are gonna pack them nicely in plastic fruits (or whatever comes to hand) and have a nice fruit-salad at the end of the day. It is gonna be delicious in taste and sound. Oscillator signals will be send through both your dish and your body; you are welcome to have a try and become a living switch.
