PIFcamp is returning to the heart of Triglav’s Alpine paradise with a solemn purpose – to reactivate the hacker community. PIFparticipants will join forces in the exploration of various notions and interests at the intersection of DIY new media practices and modern technologies, putting special emphasis on creating playful and exciting collaborative projects in the fields of e-textiles and wearable electronics, bio-art, DIY electronics, computer art, citizen science, as well as open source software and hardware in connection with the local Alpine world around us.
