The Multitouch Console / c-base
As part of "MetaSpace in DiscourseLab" (curated by J. Grenzfurthner) / Paraflows 2007
THE MULTITOUCH CONSOLE -- Reconstructing artefacts from the space station
A workshop with members of the C-Base crew.
For more than twelve years, a diverse community of artists, hackers and generally crazy people have been excavating and reconstructing artefacts of the crashed space station c-base. We will give a short introduction to the history of the reconstruction project, highlight experiences gained and then exhibit the latest result of our archeological work: the famous multi-touch console MTC.
Using the MTC as an example, we will talk about the process of reconstruction, the technologies discovered and future possible excavation plans.
The second part of the workshop will offer the opportunity to play with the artefact and write your own application or demo for it.
