HackteriaLab 2013 – Bangalore, held from 30. Jan – 12. Feb, 2013, is the third edition of an intensive two-week interdisciplinary collaboration between international and local artists, hackers, activists, scientists, and designers. This year we hope to expand on the various ideas and methodologies developed during the two previous versions of HackteriaLab 2011 – L’Arc, Romainmotier and HackteriaLab 2010 – Dock18, Zurich.
A micro documentary video about HackteriaLab activities, mainly in Bangalore, 2013. Hackteria is a collection of DIY Biology, Open Source Art Projects that use Biology, LifeSciences, Biotechnology.
HackteriaLab 2013 will host scientists who work on cell evolution, biomechanics, insect flight, toxins, stem cells, muscles, bacteria, crickets, plant biology and butterflies; makers, hackers, activists and educators who work on DIY instruments, 3D-printing, low-cost sensors and playful electronics; and artists who practice sculpture, video art, performance, experimental film, installation, design, sound art and bioart. Within the framework of “Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art” the HackteriaLab’s immersive format plays a key role in experimentation and the development of new models for knowledge sharing and collaboration building, in the emergent artistic practices related to biology and in science in general, as well as hacktivists and educators exploring citizen science, DIY bio, DIWO (Do-it-with-others) and public participation in the life sciences.
