Superglue: Run Your Own Web
In reaction to the opaque systems revealed to be at play online, artists, engineers and designers have been progressively exploring new ways to hand control back to web users. With this need for independence growing out of initiatives such as the Self-hosted and Internet-independent movements, Superglue provides users with the option for creating and hosting your own website from home.

Superglue is an easy, entry-level visual web authoring tool which operates on an inexpensive personal server, enabling you to host your own content and skip the Cloud.

This hands-on workshop presents an opportunity for you to try out this exciting new platform and learn the process of converting an off-the-shelf device into a fully functional, personal web-server.

Over the last 18 months a team of artists, engineers, programmers, designers and researchers have been building Superglue.  It saw a test launch in October 2014, and is now ready for public trials.  With user experience in mind, the Superglue visual web authoring tool comes as a handy, easy-to-use, browser add-on, which enables you to create websites directly in the browser window. To host your website at home, Superglue operates on a personal server - a modified device which you plug into the wall, instantly creating your very own web server.

Superglue is developed by Danja Vasiliev, Joscha Jaeger and Michael
Zeder in collaboration with Teresa Dillon, VERBALVISUAL and zerbamine.

No specialist technical or web development knowledge is necessary.

Please bring
- laptop
- your own server
We recommend these two inexpensive models.  Please let us know if this is not possible (email erica@eyebeam.org); a few pre-configured servers will be available for participants to test during the workshop.

Danja Vasiliev is a Critical Engineer born in Saint-Petersburg, currently living and working in Berlin.  He studies Systems and Networks through anti-disciplinary experimentation with hardware, firmware and software. Using computational platforms he engages in examination and exploitation of System and Network paradigms in both the physical and digital realms. Based on these findings, Vasiliev creates and exhibits works of Critical Engineering.  Since 1999 Vasiliev has been involved in computer-technology events, media-art exhibitions and seminars around the world. He has received a number of awards and mentions at Ars Electronica, Japan Media Art Festival, and Transmediale, among others.  In October 2011, together with his colleagues Julian Oliver and Gordan Savičić, Vasiliev coauthored The Critical Engineering Manifesto.
