This workshop/laboratory, in colaboration with Daniel Canet, software engineer, was held during three practice and theory based sessions at Hangar and presented it’s experiments during the fourth date in form of a performative internet flea market, inspired by the concept of Yami-Ichi at Sala Ricson, Hangar. We were also proud to hace Violeta Mayoral as a special guest to talk about her no-face project.
As a result of the three sessions the participating group presented their digital life hacks brought to physical existence, prints, performances and games, mixed with ‘pongos’, a spanish word for useless objects you don’t dare to throw away. Everything was on sale. During the event, a huge ham was to be conquered by posting a picture with it on Instagram and the group elaborated a fanzine of 40 pages reflecting the experiments and thoughts inspired by the workshop. You can consult it online on Hangar’s site for publications
The workshop was comunicated through mostly private social media platforms and by analog posters on the streets of Barcelona.
