Sonifying Wireless Data: Snuff Workshop

“Snuff” is a workshop to create a device that amplifies wireless internet traffic, bluetooth data transfer, mobile phones, microwaves and other devices with electromagnetic activity in the 2.4 GHz range. Students will construct and experiment with a portable device able to amplify and de-modulate frequency ranges between 0.1 to 2.4 GHz. THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLD OUT.

“Snuff” is a workshop to create a device that amplifies wireless internet traffic, bluetooth data transfer, mobile phones, microwaves and other devices with electromagnetic activity in the 2.4 GHz range. Students will construct and experiment with a portable device able to amplify and de-modulate frequency ranges between 0.1 to 2.4 GHz.

During the workshop topics related with vulnerability, data transfer interruption and sniffing will be discussed.

Documentation of the device can be found here: http://r-aw.cc/snuff

The workshop is limited to 15 participants. Experience in electronics is not necessary, but helpful. Participants keep the devices they create.

Instructors:

Mario de Vega. Lives and works in Berlin and Mexico City. His work explores causes and effects that determine the construction of realities, through processes and objects that conceptually connect with sound. His practice investigates aesthetic and social realms, via controlled accidents and its outcomes. His research focuses on the overlaps between stability, failure, simulation, and vulnerability. He works out of a multiplicity of mediums that include: site-specific interventions, actions, photography, video, sculpture, and sound installations. He has performed live and exhibited throughout various platforms, which include festivals, galleries and museums in Europe, Mexico, United States, Canada, Russia, Korea and Japan.

Victor Mazón Gardoqui. Born in North Spain in 1982 Lives and works in Berlin and Bilbao Fine Arts Studies at the University of Vasc Country, UPV-EHU, in the speciallity of Lithography and Engraving. Since 2009 working as a Tutor of the Experimentelle Technologien im Kunstkontext, in the A/V Labor of the Hoch- schule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig (HGB-Leipzig), with Prof. Dr. David Link. His works has been performed or shown on Museums, Galleries and public spaces in different countries like Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Russia, Morocco, Italy, Cech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, The Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Austria.
