Insecure Territories: Exploring hidden territories
03.02.2011-05.02.2011 11:00 – 19:00
Location: Weise 7, Weisestrasse 7, 12049 Berlin Neukölln

Insecure Territories

Public space does not end at the borders of visible, perceptible reality but extends into the invisible. The increased population of communication devices in public life results in a dense layering of electromagnetic content passing through both air and bodies, on route to its target. As such we are not just senders and recipients but carriers of signal.

We unwittingly move through numerous digital and analog networks, leaving traces of our electronic passing with the devices and gadgets we carry. More so, we inadvertently leak information about ourselves that can be analysed to a disturbing level of accuracy with publicly available forensic tools.

In form of a workshop and presentation, the technologies and techniques of how to read the plethora of signal in the air, manipulate it and pass it on will be adressed.

Network Insecurity

Experienced wireless hacker Bengt Sjölen will present the WiFi spectrum (2.4-2.5Ghz) as a rich material for activist intervention, study and play. In tandem with Gordo Savicic and Danja Vasiliev, from a temporary outpost in Sao Paulo, they will lift network packet analysis and manipulation into a trans-continental domain.

Invisible Territories

Brendan Howell and Martin Howse will take investigation and intervention into other bands of the spectrum, introducing custom hardware and rigorous techniques for a psycho-geophysical reading of the area around Tempelhof airport.

Martin Howse
Martin Howse is a programmer, theorist, performer and explorer of open hardware who founded the ap project in 1998 to implement a truly artistic operating system (OS) in its most expanded sense and within a free software context. From 2007 to 2009 he hosted a regular workshop, micro-residency and salon series in Berlin, most recently under the banner of micro-research. For the last ten years he has collaborated on numerous open-laboratory style projects and performed, lectured and exhibited worldwide.

Best Arduino How To in the WWW by Ladyada: Learn Arduino

  • Lesson 0
    Pre-flight check…Is your Arduino and computer ready?
  • Lesson 1
    The “Hello World!” of electronics, a simple blinking light
  • Lesson 2
    Sketches, variables, procedures and hacking code
  • Lesson 3
    Breadboards, resistors and LEDs, schematics, and basic RGB color-mixing
  • Lesson 4
    The serial library and binary data – getting chatty with Arduino and crunching numbers
  • Lesson 5
    Buttons & switches, digital inputs, pull-up and pull-down resistors, if/if-else statements, debouncing and your first contract product design.
