Mary Had a Little Lamb

8 — 11 June 2012
PrintRoom, Rotterdam

This three-day workshop is a creative collaboration with our everyday digital devices (laptops, voice recorders, smartphones, scanners, digital cameras). Tracing the glitches, flaws and corruptions that occur when a message is passed through a line of devices we will explore the implicit transformation processes and their invisible background operations. The resulting material will form the content of a publication, which will be printed on the last day of the workshop.

This experiment is based on Whisper Down the Lane, Broken Telephone, Stille Post, the famous children’s game that explores how easily information can become corrupted by errors typically accumulating in the retelling of one story. Replacing the human imagination with digital devices we will take this game to a different level.

Please get in touch with PrintRoom to book a space. And if possible, please bring your digital gadgets, laptop, mobile phone, smart phone and similar.
Saturday – Sunday from 13:00 to 17:00
Monday from 11:00 to 14:00 (optional)
