Ljudmila, Ljubljana based laboratory for science and art, showcases its workshop activities and art production with an “on-spot” workshop of creating DIY electronic instruments.
Three sets of kits from which various instruments can be made exploit electrical changes during different interactions: when in contact with water, when touched, through a body contact and also as a reaction to light. Kits are: Touch Tone – responds to touch, MicroNoise – responds to light and Teremini – reacts to vicinity.
