In the case of RAW, more specifically, the system records sound continually but only commits to memory the one minute of audio before – and after – the moment at which the photography is taken. Based […]

Thus, participants “hack” their bodies and their environment, turning them into switches that activate and deactivate simple electronic circuits. The workshop was created and is facilitated by two artists and designers who do not […]

RAW

An audio/photographic tool for conveying minimally-mediated impressions of everyday life Records and accounts of everyday life in our pasts and presents are often mediated by numerous third parties (researchers, producers, editors, and so on). We feel this mediation degrades the full sense of awareness and appreciation we could achieve of other peoples and places. The […]
