The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium Archive
For sale: EUR €85.00
The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium Archive is a record of the Weise7 Studio show for Labor Berlin 8, a series of workshops run at Weise7 and its own creation. Unlike other books, this book acts as an Internet independent wireless server, running from a tiny, custom designed computer inside the book. Art Artwork from Germany
To start the server just open the book and connect to it wirelessly using your laptop, tablet or phone. Browse the contents in a park, library or while half way up a mountain, sharing the content with those in your vicinity. Inside can be found high resolution images of our exhibition, video, source code and texts about each of the works. To turn off the server, simply close the book..
The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium Archive was launched on March 9th at Labor Berlin at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, and was 5 months in development.
The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium Archive is served to you directly from a tiny computer, designed especially for this book by studio partner Bengt Sjolen.
The board runs the OpenWRT GNU/Linux distribution, customised for this device. The entire source code for this distribution is available in the archive. Full schematics of the board are also available, making it possible for others to customise and manufacture their own version of this unique device.
The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium Archive hosts images, video, source code, schematics and texts covering all aspects of the exhibition, workshop and book production, served to your browser directly from our book.
Our Labor Berlin 8 Exhbition was curated by Transmediale Artistic Director Kristoffer Gansing. Each of the 10 works that appeared in the Labor 8 exhibition are documented, alongside bios of the contributing studio partners.
Images, texts, code and course material from our workshop series are also served from the book.
