metamedIalab: ontohackInG & metaGamInG In the alGorIcene Jaime Del Val Spain

MetaMediaLab is a citizen lab for exploring and elaborating minor perceptions, a laboratory of research into the ways in which media shape societies not so much at the level of content but of their very structures, particularly in terms of how they organise perception. This is what we will call metamedia: The thinking of the very frameworks and perceptual structures mobilised by media. Ontohacking implies a critical reinvention of such structures, which alters the way bodies move, relate and constitute social ecologies.

Gambiologia is a Brazilian creative hub which adopts the country’s tradition of “gambiarra” (“life hacks” or hechizos) as a source of inspiration for works on art and technology. It materializes itself on the production of multifunctional devices which are recognized either as electronics, installations, sculptures or decorative objects. In this workshop, we will collect unused objects from urban landscape and hack them in order to create upcycled design objects. For that, we will explore the concept of “industrial coincidence”, in which two industrial objects with distinct origins fit perfect in each other. We will also provide basic electronics theory and materials that will be applied in the student’s creations.
