At the RFID workshop…

Now listening at, to the talk of Melanie Rieback — a technologist connected to –. I came in late, but here are some of what I heard her saying:

“the RFID-technology is in a young enough state for artist & designers still to have an impact on the development of it.”

“performance art can be as effective as technology demonstrations….”

She gives a lot of examples of lo-tech, well, let’s say activist art-stuff, of ‘hacking’ RFID… which are possible because some (a lot) of RFID-tags are pretty unprotected, or, even because of the simple fact that RFID-tags can’t be read when inside foil.
