Michelle Poon & Savio Woo / HK
Workshop 1 - Sónar+D
Utilising the techno-magic of hardware-hacking, f i e l d combines a stroke of graphite, a slip of copper and an audio speaker to create a musical instrument. This two-hour workshop lets participants explore and assemble such an instrument and then use it to create sounds. No prior knowledge is necessary; we invite mistakes, experimentation and random static.

Sónar+D workshops require separate registration and payment.
Michelle Poon works in the inter-disciplinary field of architecture, design and research by combining engineering and interaction/user experience design towards immersive environments.
The approach that borders commercial architecture and subversive work occupies the interstitial space between physical and virtual; art and architecture; technical and abstract. These investigations are to examine patterns in perceptual mechanisms and social identities emerging in these points-of-tensions.
