This is the project and community website of PROTO*. It is a ‘live’ site of experiments, prototypes, processes and documentation. So please mind that things, fonts, colours and images move, change and evolve.
PROTO* (Lab) is a digital technology makers community place at Aarhus University BTECH in Herning Denmark. The focus of PROTO* is ‘Making Digitalization’ using protocols, data processes and off the shelf products to amplify societal potential, while critically inquiring into its capabilities, concerns and controversies.
As a research lab it is a pedagogical place, sensitive to reflective technologists seeking to discern tacit knowledge from technology making. As a platform it gathers and collaborates with both international and local networks of technologists, designers, entrepreneurs, artists and security activists for shaping new businesses and value transactions. With this PROTO* will facilitate and build novel business models, innovative services and collaborative networks for transitioning society into sustainable enterprises and communities
