Splinterfields is an initiative of several Brussels based organizations active within the fields of technological and media arts (Constant, FoAM, nadine and OKNO) to foster collaborative, agile and flexible learning. The programme of workshops, study-groups and field-tests is open to artists, designers, technologists and other generalists curious to explore tools and mindware for experiments in contemporary culture and daily life.

workshop organised by Constant

In the weekend of the 17th-19th of December we will look at the act of repairing. We focus on textile and clothing, looking how something is woven, stitched together, consisting of threads and layers, and how these structures break, wear and tear with a body inside.

The Friday afternoon from 14 to 17h Abla who works as a volunteer in the Vaartkapoen repair and retouche atelier (http://www.vaartkapoen.be/socecnaai.htm) will show us the work they do. She will also show a technique for repairing.

Interference-free Foraging Mobility in Brussels
on Electromagnetism, Psychogeophysics and Urban Beekeeping

Electromagnetic fields can have adverse effects on living organisms - honeybees are especially sensitive.

Although urban environments provide beneficial habitats for bee colonies, the electromagnetic field concentrations can disturb the bees' orientation and communication capabilities. To assist city bees with this issue, participants can work on an interference free foraging map.
