Interested in biology, technology, case-modding, hacking, and the potential future of nature and technological integration?
This summer, Biomodd are hosting a workshop at the pioneering Create Space in London.
Workshop Dates: Sat 25th, Sun 26th, Mon 27th July
Workshop Times:10am til late
Location: Create Space London
Biomodd is a global series of art installations in which computer technology and ecology converge. Computer networks, built from up-cycled computer components, are provided with living internal ecosystems. In a symbiotic exchange, plants and algae live alongside electronics and use the waste heat to thrive. Sensors and robotics provide increased interactional possibilities with the organisms. The first version of the project was completed in the US in 2007, while the second version was built in the Philippines in 2009. Since then, several iterations manifested around the world from New York to London, and from Shanghai to Santiago de Chile.
How you can get involved:
This workshop will be run over a three day period (27-29 July) and is open to a multi disciplinary audience, basically anyone with an interest in reimagining our relationship to e-waste, biology-technology integration, permaculture and creating closed loop systems and mobilizing a community to co-create and explore through play. We want to transform the entire floor of Create Space and provide a platform for other artists that may be interested in themes being explored.
We are giving 50 people the opportunity to come and work first hand with an incredible duo. Biomodd founder, Angelo Vermeulen, teams up with Curiosity Design Research founder and PHD researcher Diego Maranan to run a classic Biomodd workshop in London. In 2013, Senior TED fellow, Angelo was crew commander on the HI-SEAS project, a NASA funded, Mars simulation program exploring food-growing in space. Together with Diego Maranan, co-lead of Biomodd Philippines, and the Biomodd London team he will host this incredible one off opportunity.
