Wish Lab

*Wish Lab* is a workshop where participants become makers and fulfill other people’s electronic wishes. Just as someone would go to a tailor or carpenter to have some clothing or furniture of their liking made, *Wish Lab* is the place to go for custom electronics serving individual needs and desires. It is like a factory, but unlike ordinary factories that mass-produce standardized electronics. The aim is to unleash electronic desires, hidden under one’s perception based on one-size-fits-all production of electronics, and to interpret and realize them through the collaboration of artists and makers.

*Wish Lab* focuses on soft electronics using e-Textile and combines fabric craft techniques such as sewing, knitting, embroidery and weaving with basic electronics. To ease this task, different types of material including ordinary fabric, conductive fabric and electronic parts is included in the *Wish Lab Maker’s Kit* along with a manual booklet.

Makers will also hack and re-use various devices that are broken or not used anymore. Reverse engineering is an important approach in *Wish Lab*’s attempt to turn manufactured products into more personal objects. The resulting designs and codes will be open source or accessible via a Creative Commons License.

Electronics in *Wish Lab* is a tool rather than a science, and the goal is to realize wishes. Hence the process of collecting someone’s wishes and revealing the underlying desires by interpreting them through observations and conversations is as important as the actual making. Finally, the whole process will be complete with the maker giving the wish back to the submitter. *Wish Lab* can be modified and repeated, with different participants and locations or specific themes.

코바칸트 KOBAKANT

Mika Satomi and Hannah Perner-Wilson have been collaborating since 2006, and in 2008 formed the collective KOBAKANT. Together, through their work, they explore the use of textile crafts and electronics as a medium for commenting on technological aspects of today’s “high-tech” society. In 2009, as research fellows at the Distance Lab in Scotland, KOBAKANT published an online database for sharing their DIY wearable technology approach titled *HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT*.
