We live in a fast-paced world in which we invent technologies to make our lives even faster. The latest developments in artificial intelligence only seem to reinforce these processes by generating a large number of finished works within a few seconds. But what happens when we consciously turn to a “slow” design material and try to slow down the creative process? In this workshop, the participants will learn to design with textile materials in connection with handcrafted electronics, and invent, narrate, and create their own visions of alternative futures. Together we will speculate about the technologies of the future and experiment with the different methods of crafting electronics, which enable an unusual way of creative self-expression and play with our inner sense of time.

Please note: Registration required. Minimum age: 12 or children accompanied by parents.
