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!!

Evan Roth created “Multi Finger Touch Paintings” “Paintings created by performing routine tasks on multi-touch hand held computing devices.”

Tobias Leingruber held a
FB Resistance workshop*, and the results can be seen in the FB Resistance Artists Facebook Group (Resistance from within the system!! ;))

*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

Short intro to FB Resistance:

Facebook Resistance is a research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook beeing the dominant social identity management system, researching on ways to change it’s rules and functionality from inside the system, locally via Browser App.

FB sets the rules of how-to behave, so we’re asking: Are we happy to live in their visualisation of our online identity or do we want to change it? A change can be as trivial as adding a background-image. Facebook designing your online identity is like IKEA designing your appartment. The only individuality lies in the family pictures standing in your BILLY shelves.
