'Buqs' are electronic lifeforms that shift the experience of the streetscape from the primarily visual to a more auditory experience.

The project aims to divert the invasion of the virtual realm into our public spaces by emphasizing the physical.The lifeforms invade surfaces within the built environment and use them for the creation of sounds, exploring the city as an instrument through it's material properties. Popular embedded technologies including cheap radios and microcontrollers are used for a new purpose. Instead of measuring and control, the electronic lifeform is used to explore, inspire and rethink how man and machine can relate to their built surroundings.
In this workshop verkerk and Hoogeboom will give an introduction to the project, followed by a hands-on experience for participants in which they will learn how the 'Buqs' are programmed and build.
