Chaos at the Museum! #CaosBA
« on: December 01, 2016, 02:24:33 PM »

My name is Fermin Enrique Ramirez, I write on behalf of the project
Sonoteca Bahía Blanca to share an experience in which we successfully
use Makey Makey.

We recently participated in "Chaos at the Museum" (#CaosBA), a
meeting-workshop that sought to reflect "on the civic responsibilities
of museums as public spaces, their potential as generators of an
inclusive community and as contributors to development of a diverse

The meeting, organized by the TyPA Foundation in conjunction with the
University of California Davis, the University of Washington and the
Central Saint Martins School of Arts at the University of London, was
held at the Museum of the City of Buenos Aires and brought together 150
Participants from 15 countries over four intense days.

Apart from the lectures, we were divided into teams in order to approach

Representatives, and the former Jesuit Provinces and Residencies among
other buildings.

installation of a netbook connected to a Makey Makey plate and an apple,
which when played allowed to listen to a podcast with stories of
neighbors of the place that we previously recorded and edited. In this
way, passers-by of all ages could access historical information of the
place in multiple formats (cartographic, photographic, timeline and

Then I send you some links of interest and... thank you so much for
bringing Makey Makey to the world!
