A hands-on workshop about media hacking and conducted by Marc Lee. It introduces participants to basic tools and strategies for working with live and interactive media, focuses on content grabbing and uses Marc's exhibited work, Pic-me, as an example.
In a laboratory setting, the workshop gives an introduction into artistic use of digital media and will allow participants to experiment with new media uses. The Internet is a huge information pool of content (text, images, sounds, videos, and so on), which is constantly growing and changing.
