... We can live forever, in a clean, honest, purified, Electroworld. [Gravity's Rainbow. Thomas Pynchon]
Purified Electroworld offers a two day introduction to the very basics of electronic theory and practice, through practical tuition and hands-on experimentation.
Participants will learn about the material basis and simple physics of basic electronic components, and how these materials and parts function within larger assemblages embedded in the physical world (electromagnetics, noise, sound, the body).
WeÃ¢ÂÂll also find out how to read electronic schematics, and translate these into working circuits using a variety of well-documented techniques, how to inventively hack everyday consumer devices for creative mis-use and re-use, and how to troubleshoot and fix our own built circuits.
Purified Electroworld focuses on basic principles and simple construction methods which can be adapted to suit the participantÃ¢ÂÂs temperament, and which can form the foundation for future discovery and active construction. Purified Electroworld is designed to provide a good basis for any future workshop which involves an electronics component.
No prior knowledge whatsoever is assumed. On the second day participants will construct and adapt a simple scratching transmitter instrument, or can choose to start working on their own projects.

A weekly series of constructivist workshops emphasising making and connection within the field of the existent.
Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and reception, and electromysticism. workshops solely utilise free software and GNU toolbase.
