Alex Keeling is hosting a two-part workshop on “wearable electronics” at Struts Gallery during the OK!Quoi? Bilingual Contemporary Arts Festival. Phase one, on Monday, July 28, will be an assembly session, during which participants will build circuits with oscillating LED’s into their clothing, and learn to program them to emulate the recently torn down RCI radio towers. Phase two happens at night on Tuesday, July 29, when participants will don their wearable electronics and walk to the broken bridge at the end of Bridge Street to juxtapose their oscillating lights on the horizon where the towers used to be. We talked about the workshop, which merges geography, art, and technology, and discuss the assortment of electronic components that Alex brought into the studio.

At the time of release, there are still a few spaces available for the workshop.
