workshop "xtension please!"
20-23 july
villa Borego, Paris
website: http://xtension-please.uotni.org
inscription: xtension at uotni.org

The main purpose is to generate an unexpected creature with digital and
analog inputs/outputs,peripherals,and recycled electrical devices such as
TVs,telephones...assembled between each others with sensors etc.We want to
use analog and digital compost as an extension to grow a virtual-physical
The "thing"is exponential,it will cover the space in the villa and maybe
grow outside...still interacting and living for what it is done:
nothing.Thecreature will interact with itself or us. We don't know
where it's going to
end or what it's going to do.In this way,this entity is
absurd-like.Thisproject is the support that will bring us a new
experience in the
combination of technology robotics,sound design,machines and spatiality. In
that way,we'll try to use the different skills of each people involved in
the project ,to create an unexpected organism as a new territory.

Growing a "thing":an unexpected organism.
This unexpected organism is a link,is digital,can be outside or
inside,creates interaction,feed-back,tensions between places and people,is
material and immaterial,creates one simple signal with complex structure,is
an assembly of various systems,has a sensitivity and resistance,is a tool
and a toy,is mechanical and analog,has a center,a core and peripheral,can be
plugged and unplugged,contains code and articulations.

In the run-up to the workshop participants and tutors will grow up a compost
of material that could be used as an extension of an organism.

Real workbase:
Villa Borego is situated in Paris, 20th, during the workshop, the VILLA will
be used as a base to link and fit things together.By connecting the site and
the exploration of its  properties,the workshop creates a opportunity to
explore the link between analog and digital as an extension of an unexpected

Luc Kerléo
He essentially works to make derive the tools,techniques,methods and
machines which in-
tervene normally only like transmitters.His actions in the media systems
often consist in introducing a distortion,a small disfonctionement,not as a
food for the system but in the system itself,in its functioning...His
relation with reality passes by the sound,via a practice of listening.
