four23 have curated a series of workshops to explore an open source approach to creativity.
Using Sam Labs’ SMART construction kits, guests were invited to experiment with the Internet of Things, transforming everyday objects through sensors and code.
After setting up their own connected networks, input triggers and actions, guests created hacks using automated sound modules, step counters and Twitter responsive lights.
The event was hosted at Fish Island Labs in Hackney Wick, a co-working space created by the Barbican for creative entrepreneurs working across art, technology, fashion and design.
The workshops were hosted in collaboration with tech innovators Sam Labs who create kits designed to encourage children to explore their inventive potential.
