Ljudmila, Digital Medialab of Ljubjliana, in collaboration with SGMK of Zurich and Medialab-Prado are seeking for proposals for an upcoming workshops in collaborative prototyping which will be hold in Ljubljana in space of Ljudmila Media Lab with the participation of advisors and technical assistants.

Ljubljana's edition of the workshop will be dedicated to explorations of Obsolete Technologies of the Future, collaborative prototyping vol. 1, rethinking the qualities of outdated technology and making way for a long-term, sustainable usage of technology in our environment in the decades to come.

Suggested areas of focus include:

* Projects that suggest different usages of existing urban technological infrastructures
* Rethinking outdated technologies and recycling the computer and IT wasteland.
* Projects which allow people to interact with technology to provoke new ways of perceiving the surrounding, the self, the visual, the material, and stimulate aesthetic experience.
* Particular attention will be paid to projects which promote open source communities, collaborative work and collective modes of behavior.
* Playing with data - submissions for works, which connect data forms and physically embody data streams, bridging 'on' and 'off' line worlds.
* Products and services that provide sustainable solutions for our needs, including the use of open data, data mash ups and remixes.

We are seeking proposals for:

* Installations (interactive, responsive, generative)
* Performances (participatory, gesticular, dance)
* Visualisations (moving images, generative, projections, holograms)
* Free Software (FLOSS) / Open Hardware / Open Design / Services / Start-ups / Apps / Devices
