hACkathon by Justin Tyler Tate

27 September 2021 @ 18:30 - 19:00 EEST

hACkathon is a multifaceted project, produced for and executed during Pixelache Festival 2021 (2021/06/06-13).

The project encourages individuals to dissemble, examine, hack and repurpose discarded or functional air-conditioning units for the purpose of giving them the added passive functionality of extracting carbon from the atmosphere. Through research conducted for hACkathon, a methodology was discovered that can be applied to all types of AC units. This method is explained in detail during the 30 minute long hACkathon radio program, where the host - Justin Tyler Tate - walks participants through a process of designing and building their own parasitic passive carbon capture devices to augment their air conditioning units using readily available materials and processes. As Individuals cool their spaces in the increasingly hotter summer months, they will also be passively capturing carbon and offsetting their ecological footprint.

Audio material will be supplemented by visual material at the website: http://hackyourac.weebly.com/

Pixelache Festival Radio is broadcast 6-13 June on {openradio} in partnership with Pixelache, Korppiradio, Oodi library, M-Cult. Festival programme at http://burn.pixelache.ac
