access to tools fair – att @and Rijeka

“Instead of optimizing our machines for humanity, we are optimizing humans for machinery.”
— Douglas Rushkoff

We are HAPPY to announce a double-bill event:

5/6 february 2016 in Rijeka and 9 february 2016 in Ljubljana at Cirkulacija²!


Participants in Ljubljana: Paula Pin ( Spain), Dmitry Morozov (Russia),  Radiona (Croatia), Nataša Muševič, Robertina Šebjanič, Boštjan Čadež, Dominik Mahnič, Borut Savski (all Slovenia), Stefan Doepner (Germany/Slovenia)…

C0\P/roduced by Aksioma -> facebook event

Access to tools and knowledge that new communication technologies will bring about was at the root of what the techno-hippies of the 70s were declaring. Half a century later the reality is not quite such. People have been reduced to mere users of “user friendly” technologies – technologies to be used and not understood. Appropriating, dismantling and creatively reinventing these “tools” is the only way to resist their biases, and ultimately to understand them. Open source-code is the key to knowledge and the unlocking of technologies.

The event is in conjunction with AND Fair Rijeka, that will happen on 5–6 February 2016 at Filodrammatica gallery in Rijeka, organized by Drugo more (HR) in collaboration with Aksioma and Abandon Normal Devices (UK).

Drugo More
facebook event

In Rijeka, apart from Cirkulacija 2 and Radiona, there will be local artists and enthusiasts presenting their work.  From UK, the AND (Abandon Normal Devices) festival/partner will bring 5-6 artists/projects from different parts of Europe  (there is also a project from Korea that recognizes face forms from “looking” at clouds)…

Fair in Rijeka will open on Friday, 5th February at 5 pm. We plan to start with the half an hour project presentations at 6 pm (altogether 10 presentations), and then at 11 pm Radiona will start with the concert with their devices. On Saturday the fair starts at 10 am and begins with the second round of presentations between 11-12. Performances with devices start from around 8 pm.

Formatting: the fair is planned as a FAIR, with tables and stands where everyone can display their projects and interact with visitors. To add more dynamic to the whole event, occasional spotlight and/or microphone gives a participant an opportunity to present his/her project(s) so they could be in focus at that moment. No stage in Rijeka! Presentations can be up to 25 minutes long, but also much shorter than that. They can talk about the idea, the process of construction, show how it works… in other words, it doesn’t have to be in any way different from the moment when a visitor approaches to you and asks you about your project and how it works! So, it can be pretty informal and relaxed, without any stress.

Ljubljana situation:

Takes place starting from 5pm on Tuesday 9th february 2016 at Cirkulacija², Tobačna 5. The place will be heated! In Ljubljana we will have one day of presentation and a performance final party in the night.

The Access to Tools Fair is dedicated to exploring how technologies create new forms of social dialogue. The fair is a new media art and performative event inspired by AND Fair, first proposed in 2014 by Abandon Normal Devices for the AND festival in Liverpool where, much like the World Fairs of old, inventors could showcase new inventions and discoveries. The aim is to create a “Device Based Fair / Event,” a Temporary Autonomous Zone where experimental products (goods?) are exhibited and exchanged, new relationships are established, and audiences learn from the creators and are introduced to new products.
Artworks and technology will be on display at several stands, and visitors will be able to experiment and interact with them. The authors will be available at all times for explanations, help, demonstrations, consultancy and knowledge exchange, and they might even try to demystify and open up the black box of technology.

Details – The Devices  on Display (DDDD):

Synthomir by Igor Brkić, Damir Prizmić (Radiona, Zagreb)SYNTHOMIR

is 8-bit Arduino based open-source DIY synth by RADIONA.ORG. During the fair in Cirkulacija 2 the authors will prepare a workshop! Make your own Synthomir!! It only takes 4 to 5 hours of your back!!! Number of participants is limited!!!! Contact sonjagrdina@gmail.com.

Radiona / Makerspace – Association for Development of ‘do-it-yourself’ Culture has been founded in order to enhance the visibility of makers’ open source culture and self sustainable production, as well as with an aim of connecting all possible fields of art, science and technology. The objective here is to create new realities of networked and collaborative intermedia and new media practices in line with world trends such as DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others). Radiona.org focuses its activities on education, research processes, artistic projects, curatorial practices, international and domestic inter-sector collaborations, renewable systems and social awareness related issues…

Borut Savski /Cirkulacija2 will bring most of the small arduino systems/ gadgets:

1. Cirkulino midi sequencer (interface for time and pitch sequencing with enhanced functionality)
2. XGMidi synth module with LCD to play XG midi voices
3. Moire generator of visual moire effect with high power LEDs
4. Wardenclyffe Tower sensorized sound generating piece (raspberry pi and arduino)

and maybe:
5. Bride’s Harp (rubber strings)

Together with Stefan the C2 positioned sound system:

1. A couple of IBalls wireless midi controllers with XYZ sensors
2. 2 pieces of XY positioned loudspeakers
3. A couple of IBalls wireless sensors to be used with computer

Boštjan Čadež

Projection Scanner

is a MIDI controlled mirror which allows one to redirect the projection to any position in an area constrained by a cylinder shape. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it allows continuous rotation in one of the axes. it consists of 3d printed mechanics and a controller board based around a Teensy 3 microcontroller board.


Robertina Šebjanič
presents her DIY hydrophones.
She invites you to fish for the underwater sounds in the waters of Rijeka and Ljubljana!

Aquatic  reminiscence, features underwater sound recordings, collected in rivers and seas (Donau in Linz, Adriatic sea and  Norwegian Sea ). With experimental DIY hydrophones recorded underwater field recordings are imbued live during the performance into a new sound waves landscape.

Nataša Muševic Dot

Fair: Sonorose
Nataša Muševič Dot will be presenting her latest experimental research project Sonorose (with Zavod Rampa) during which she intents to investigate the possibility of developing a zero-distortion organic shaped speaker based on the topology of flowers. Bionic acoustics being the main field, the author experiments with developing phase plugs and speaker driver surface that would enable all different sound wavelengths to sum up more accurately than on conventional drivers. Speakers shaped like flowers will be 3d modeled based on the acoustic properties of different sound wavelengths. The author opens up the debate and invites the observers to think about which flower would suit as the origin for a perfect speaker and why. She will exhibit her organic shaped speakers built until now and showcase the importance of bionic shapes used for sound.


Dominik Mahnič

DIY LED and laser dia-projectors

Mahnič will present his development on different mobile, low cost hand dia-projectors and possibility of use.


Stefan Doepner / Cirkulacija2

1. sonicPartner – autonomous driving robot platform with bluetooth soundsystem
2. midiRegister – a 8 fader MIDI interface, inspired by pipe organ registers, with MIDI editing
3. stringBaton – 2 models of a simple made one string guitar with relay-coil pick up
4. forceBoard – a 8 force/pressure sensor MIDI interface for synthesizer and computer.
