> What attracted you in this workshop and what were your expectations? Visualisations of electromagnetic pollutions. How to make audible the frequencies of GSM, wifi etc. > Can you describe what things you learned in this workshop? What did you learn that was unexpected? I learned to do solder components that are usually soldered by machines. I learned about the activities of the workshop host and his network.
