Fair Acupuncture sonification

Join Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory (Patrícia J. Reis & Stefanie Wuschitz) and build a device to sonify your most active acupuncture spots on the surface of your skin (no needles involved). You can later connect the input from your acupuncture points to Pure Data. For more sophisticated sounds and more detailed findings on how the environment changes your body we will build several prototypes of instruments. This workshop is trying to use only hardware that was created under fair labour conditions. Without harming the environment and avoiding commodity chains connected to mining. This can work if we use fair trade certified electronic components, self made and recycled electronic parts and explore the capacitive quality and resistance of our own body.

About Miss Baltazar’s Laboratory :

Miss Baltazar’s Laboratory is a feminist hackerspace in Vienna, encouraging art and technology that is developed from a female perspective. Founded in 2009.

Artists bio:

Stefanie Wuschitz works at the intersection of research, art and technology, with a particular focus on Critical Media Practices (feminist hacking, open source technology, peer production). She graduated with an MFA in Transmedia Arts in 2006 (University of Applied Arts Vienna). 2008 she completed her Masters at TISCH School of the Arts at New York University and became Digital Art Fellow at Umea University in Sweden. 2009 she founded the feminist hackerspace and art collective Mz* Baltazar's Laboratory in Vienna. In 2014 she finished her PhD on 'Feminist Hackerspaces' at the Vienna University of Technology. She held research and Post-Doc positions at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, Michigan University, Weizenbaum Institut, Universitaet der Kuenste Berlin and is currently project leader of an FWF research project on 'Feminist Hacking. Building Circuits as an Artistic Practice' affiliated to Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She is working on an artistic research project at the TU Berlin titles "Coded Feminisms in Indonesia (Berliner Hochschulprogramm DiGiTal).

Patrícia J. Reis is an installation media artist based in Vienna, whose practice encompasses different formats and media to examine our relationship with modern technology. Through an ongoing investigation that destabilize the boundaries between science, technology, magic and spiritual believes, she explores questions “How do we believe in machines?” and “How technology is shaping us bodily?”. In her complex installations she often appeals to the visitor’s sensoriality in an intimate and sensual way, encourage them to become active participants. Seeking to subvert visuality as a primarily mode of experience, she plays with technology as a mean to expand and stimulate corporeal perceptions in the viewer. Inspired by Media theory and Cybernetics, Reis analyses similar modus operandi among humans and machines, such as program, system and automatism, suggesting the human body as such, and playing around with its own sensorial mechanisms. Her work becomes distinctive in the contemporary art scene by combining such disparate imagery, with contrasting media (painting, sculpture, photography, video, interactive systems) and materials (paper, resin, styrofoam, wood, metal, foam, textile). Since 2012 Reis has been offering workshops, exhibitions, and talks, locally and internationally (Brussels, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Madrid, San Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco).Since 2012 she is a board member of the collective Mz* Baltazar’s Lab, a feminist hackerspace based in Vienna (AT) in which she is curating exhibitions and collectively creating and researching on interactive installations on the intersection between art, gender, science and open source technology. Reis has exhibited her work frequently nationally and internationally in solo and group shows.
