How to communicate with an old speciment, an obsolete technology ? Will we even be able to turn it on and speak with it ? Are we missing a key, a chord, a code ? What happens if we don't have the tools to understand each other ? For this workshop, I will bring a pen plotter, it's a printer from the 80's and it was used to draw technical plans. So I propose we talk about obsolecence, we try to understand together what is needed to create a link between us an an older digital technology. And most of all, I propose to draw with it and make a "Hackers and Designers : Everyday Piracy summer camp 2024" colouring book !
