Trenta valley, Slovenia
PIFcamp_Hacking HyperREality is a 7-day nomad maker-base set in the Slovenian nature, where art, technology and knowledge meet.
During hands-on workshops, presentations, field trips, laboratory research and with the help from experienced local and international guests from different fields, the participants actively take part in exploration and representation of climate, economic, ecological, technological, social, political, cultural, artistic and geopolitical changes and tensions of past, present and future Europe. In DIY, DIWO and DITO manner!
The workshop takes place in the amazing Trenta valley, within the Triglav national park, in the crossroad of a historical mountain pass on the border of Slovenia, Italy and Austria.
You can apply with a project, idea or just out of curiosity. During the 5-day intensive workshop programme we will form several working-groups, including some on the topics, which have already been confirmed by the international participants Lynne Brunning (wearables), Dr. Marc Dusseiller (bio-hacking), Peter Edwards (DIY electronics) and Luka Frelih (computer arts and free-software).
How and why do you want to participate is up to you. There are only 2 rules:
But to help you out – Ljudmila is looking for hackers, makers, DIY enthusiasts, scientists, thinkers, programmers, noise freaks, new media artists, researchers, obsolete and new technology geeks, bio-artists, engineers, circuit benders, nature lovers and down-to-earth space explorers eager to work with each other for a better tomorrow.
