Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop participants will make, monitor, sense and invent with the Aerocene. We will assemble air pollution monitors from raw ingredients, and hack a router to make an airborne mesh network. We will tune-in to aerial phenomena on the radio spectrum. These hands-on practices will generate new questions of the Aerocene project and the possibilities of Aerocene collaborations in the future Fab City.

Collective Sensing  >  In this workshop, we will employ a portable antenna and software defined radio to listen to the Aerocene. Moving through different bands, we will listen to the flying Aerocene Explorer, as well as radio amateurs, air traffic, medium wave AM broadcasts, and other interesting phenomena.

Air pollution monitoring  > Building an air pollution monitor for Aerocene Workshop
We build a particulate matter pollution monitor from raw ingredients: sensor, arduino board, proto board, cables etc.

Hacking the Network > Hack a router to make an airborne mesh network. Workshop hacking some cheap commercial routers with open mesh firmware to create an airborne and fossil-fuel free communications network.

The workshop is hosted by Aerocene community members Sasha Engelmann, Julieta Arancio, Tomás Saraceno, Erik Vogler and Joaquin Ezcurra.

Aerocene emerged with Museo Aero Solar in 2007, a collectively produced aerosolar sculpture made with reused plastic bags. The Aerocene Explorer was collaboratively invented in 2015, to enable anybody to sense the air in a new way. Together with the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary... Read More →
