DIY solutions for a life free of technological pain is a workshop focused on creating DIY objects against health problems that arise from technology, using materials you can find in your own home. It’s so cheap and easy, even five year olds can do it! During this workshop, you will think critically about the impact the devices you use everyday have on your body, both physically and mentally, while working with your hands in order to create a one-of-a-kind solution to the problems you’ve encountered.
If you have ever experienced eye dryness from staring at a screen for too long or neck pain from looking down at your phone too much, this workshop is for you!
The workshop takes place at the HeK. Due to Corona travel restrictions, the artist will be present via online channels, which will also be set up for discussion and exchange with the artist.
