Invented to raise awareness about electronic waste, its (wrong) abundance and its (exciting) creative potential, a typical Wrekshop consists of two main phases: deconstruction and reconstruction. Participants will be invited to take apart one or more item(s) of electronic waste and extract mechanism and components. The selected parts will be rewired and integrated in an improvised collective Frankenstein machine featuring programmable electronics. Participants are invited to bring along one item of electronic waste i.e. printers, scanners, VCRs, PC towers and laptops, game controllers, electric toys and music instruments, audio units etc.
Paul Granjon is known for his performances and exhibitions with hand-made machines. Travelling the world with silly robots, he investigates the co-evolution of humans and machines, trying to open dialogue and share experiences.
