Triggered by RFID

By Rhizome

Mediamatic workshop


Are you tired of standing in line in front of the cash desk? Lost your luggage at the airport? Your cat is missing again? Or could’nt find your favorite parfume on the store shells anymore? RFID seems to be the solution!
RFID is the barcode of the future, equipping individual objects with IP addresses. Metadata for physical objects will make an internet of things possible.

After a succesfull RFID workshop in July, Mediamatic introduces the ideas and technology behind RFID for the second time in November. It seizes initiative to adopt RFID for artistic and social purposes and is designed for artists, designers and researchers, who want to look beyond the logistical horizon of this emerging technology.

In 3 days, theoretical views are combined with practical experiments. You will learn all about the technical components with an RFID set of tags, readers, and database in your hands. There is enough space to develop your own ideas and discuss them with like-minded fellows and professionals.
