Disobedient Electronics: Protest – the revolution will run on a microcontroller

A follow-up to the influential 2012 booklet series Critical Making, Disobedient Electronics: Protest is a new zine by Vancouver-based theorist and educator Garnet Hertz that uses dissent as a lens to survey electronics-based projects and practices. An editorial mandate forged the day the world woke up with a ‘Donald Trump, was elected?’ hangover, Hertz introduces the 60-page book as a demonstration of how electronics can be used to foreground pressing social issues including “the wage gap, homophobia, racism, surveillance and privacy, human rights, economic disparity, and climate change.” Drawing on material submitted to an open call, the zine collates two-page submissions from approximately two dozen designers from North America, Europe, and Asia.
