ReFunct Media Modular

Since 2015 (ongoing)
Module Size 12 x 25 cm
E-Waste / Hardware Hacking

Refunct Modular is based out of the ReFunct Media project. This wall mounted version, uses a set of modules created for the project. Each module connects to the next using custom made connectors, they share power (5 and 12v), audio signal, video signal and spare lines for misc connections. This first set of modules was created during a mini residency at the Toktek studio in Eindhoven with Karl Klomp, Gijs Gieskes and Tom Verbruggen in June 2015. More guests will be invited to participate to this project.

"ReFunct Modular" is a series of multimedia sculptures that (re)uses numerous "obsolete" electronic devices (digital and analogue media players and receivers). Those devices are hacked, misused and combined into a complex chain of elements. To use an ecological analogy they "interact" in different symbiotic relationships such as mutualism, parasitism and commensalism.

Voluntarily complex and unstable, "ReFunct Modular" isn't proposing answers to the questions raised by e-waste, planned obsolescence and sustainable design strategies. Rather, as an installation it experiments and explores unchallenged possibilities of 'obsolete' electronic and digital media technologies and our relationship with technologies and consumption.
