Former Make: Online contributor Jonah Brucker-Cohen wrote in to tell us about ReFunct 09, a symposium of the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art, that he’s involved with. This series of events will combine workshops, discussions, performances, and an exhibition on hardware hacking and circuit bending. On August 22, Jonah will be presenting one of his Scrapyard Challenge workshops:

Participants will build simple electronic projects (both digital and analog inputs) out of found or discarded “junk” (old electronics, clothing, furniture, outdated computer equipment, appliances, turntables, monitors, gadgets, etc..) in order to create audio/visual outputs. At the end of the day, the workshop participants will demonstrate and present their creations in a performance / presentation open to the public: Data Event 36.0.

Other events in the series run through to September 12th.
