Daito Manabe and the Face Visualiser

Title: Body Hack Workshop
Location: MadLab
Description: Daito Manabe will be running a body hack workshop as part of the Abandon Normal Devices Festival
Start Time: 11:00
Date: 2010-10-02
End Time: 17:00

Artist, coder, hacker, mathematician, sound designer, DJ and VJ, Manabe redefines the existent media and technologies from his unique perspective. Converting sounds into electrical impulses is one thing; transferring these impulses via diodes to a person’s facial muscles is quite another.

Join Daito in an electrifying workshop. Muscle sensors and electrical stimulation will enable you to use your own body as an INPUT / OUTPUT device, controlling or controlled by a computer. The workshop will also question the social and ethical problems arising from creating systems that can harvest sensory data from our bodies. Limited places, booking essential.

Tickets can be booked through the AND Festival site.
