With minipimer.tv we create the Possible Impossible Machine. The machine, exhibited in Liwoli festival the Kunstuniversität Linz, borns as a reflection on the limits of “human-computer-interaction” when compared with the richness and variety of possibilities offered by the interaction between humans.

The machine works only when 9 people get organized and activated together and in the same moment, the 9 sensors of the machine.

The modules containing the sensors were built by different people in a series of workshops conducted between Barcelona and Linz.The machine thus becomes a tool for discussing problems, a meta-cognitive object and a self-learning dynamic.

The machine wants to be a methodology, an open process of construction, deconstruction and mutation. It’s aim is to generate pretexts for the reflection about the dynamics of collective creation and the possible (and impossible) displacement of the notion of open source.
