Switch On Switch Off is originated from all-public workshops we did during certain Dorkbot Paris events.
The Switch On Switch Off workshops taking place in 2011 during Transmediale, FutureEverything and Cynetart are part of a research study in the SiDE program at Culture Lab. http://www.side.ac.uk
Thanks to the SiDE program at Culture Lab, we are able to take it to the next level. This workshop-as-a-festival-stand will unleash the creative power of dozens of innocent people ;-)
We are artists and nerds, we love low-tech and mid-tech hacking, we love teaching and sharing. We believe prototyping is a great way of learning.
