“*Everybody should love their router!”*

«Home is where your wifi connects automatically» claims a recent popular
Internet meme. This reflects how wifi has become a basic part of our daily
needs, like electricity, like running water. One can estimate the amount of
wifi routers in the world by a few billions. Yet they (almost) all suffer
from the same discrepancy: they are all boring.

“Boring?”, you might ask. “How can this gateway to the universe's
information be boring?” So yes. While our home router caches our wildest
fantasies, our innermost secrets, it sits in its corner, unnoticed,
unglamourous.

*Celebrating WIFI freedom!*

Recently, the FCC has been considering a proposal to require manufacturers
to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones) to prevent
modification, if they have a "modular wireless radio". This means that
hardware and wifi freedom are being attacked. In response to these
ridiculous measures, we are offering a playful DIY router pimping party.
Let's celebrate our freedom of creative hacking!

No two routers are alike! *What would your individual router look like?*

Routers covered in pink and gold glitter? Routers dressed as Darth Vader?
Routers disguised as sex-toys? Routers hiding behind anonymous’ Guy Fawkes
mask?

We call all router-owners to reflect on the unique bond they have with
their router. Re-design your router in a way to reflect its position in
your life. See how other router owners imagine their router.

Send us images of your “pimped” up routers and get a place in the 12th
edition of Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF)! In order to submit your
router please post a picture of it on Facebook or Instagram with hashtags
#ADAFyourRouter and #RouterPoP and send your submission to
[log in to unmask] along with your name, age, location, model of the
router, and a few words about your re-design if you like.

The 5 best pimped routers, selected by a jury, will be invited to be
exhibited as part of the RouterPoP installation at ADAF2016.


*How to submit:*

A PDF with: your name, age, location, and model of the router.

Up to 300 words describing what your router means to you.

Up to 5 jpeg images of the redesigned router.


*Submissions: [log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]>*

*Deadline: 21 April 2016*

*The winners will be decided by 28 April 2016*


**** Routers that will be no longer in use may be donated to Sarantaporo
DIY wireless network upon their owners' request. *


*Jury:*

Yoav Lifshitz, Tal Messing, missdata, artists (initiators of the project)

Regine Debatty, We Make Money Not Art

James Bridle, writer, artist, publisher, technologist

Ilias Chatzichristodoulou & Katerina Gkoutziouli, ADAF
