In September FAT participated at “Meeting Hub“, a hacker’s festival arranged by Platform4. Platform4 is a non-profit art and technology organisation which runs a gigantic open-space in Aalborg, Denmark. Defnetly check it out when visiting Denmark!
The following projects were created with the help of Platform 4:
Geraldine Juárez tinkered a little mobile device – the FAT CRIER – to amplify information gathered from Twitter trough a megaphone so it can be brought it to the streets. The original FAT CRIER is a commissioned piece created for PLATFORM4 and will be installed on their warehouse for everyone to use. A second workshop is coming-up on the 22nd of October!!
*FB Resistance is research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook being the dominant social identity management system, researching on the ways to change its rules and functionality from inside the system. More about FB Resistance
