labor für elektronische artfakte is the workspace of Jens Alexander Ewald. I write code and build hardware, mostly for art projects; I am a fellow of the Staalplaat Soundsystem collective and recently joined the Open Design of Trusted Things (OpenDoTT) project at the University of Northumbria as a Marie Curie PhD research fellow focusing on the topic of Wearables and the Self. The OpenDott project is a joint effort of the University of Northumbria and the Mozilla Foundation in design research to explore the how the internet of things can become healthier and more trusted. Some might know me as the author or maintainer of some code, possibly for the Arduino/Firmata plugins for VVVV or the Websocket library for Processing.
