Tonight, 9. November, starting 21h CET, we are giving a remote mini-workshop on edible DIY gel electrophoresis from the new BioTehna Lab, to our friends in Zürich. Dock18 has an interesting night of “Kleine Experimente” with various speakers on the topic of Art&Science: Jill Scott, Soren Berner, Dragica Kahlina, Daniel Fels, Urs Gaudenz and Hackteria (remote). We present live from the BioTehna Lab, which is temporarily set up in Kiberpipa the concept of Agar is the Media, a DIY gel electrophoresis chamber to run food colors in an agar agar gel. Yummi, and then we’ll eat it!

In the recent edition of ABSTRAKT N°8 “The Power of Making – Machen ist Macht”, there was an interview with dusjagr about hackteria and other biotinkering activities. ABSTRAKT is published by the W.I.R.E..

This workshop on BioElectronix for Artists and Geeks will introduce the participants into the very basics of electronics and simple circuits to be used to measure, amplify and control a living environment, sensing and actuating for biological applications, simple programming of Arduino compatible, cheap microcontrollers aka BioCheapuino. During three evening sessions we will go step-by [...]
Today we’ll continue our series of algae hacking sessions with experimentation on getting electrical signals out of large cell Chara Corallina algae and send it to pure data. We, Stefan Deuber, Ralf Weise and dusjagr, met at Ralf’s HomeLab, the best fabbing workshop i ever saw installed in an apartment, we set up the Bio-electrophysiology [...]
Through the Playaround workshop which many Hackteria members (Marc, Yashas, Spela) had been joined as a tutor throughout the years, somehow many people who are interested in bioart or who are already a practitioner in BioArt got the chance to meet each other. We’ve decided to start regular meeting from now on. Who ever are [...]
We are happy to announce the start of our new initiative – BioTehna, a collaboration of hackteria | Open Source Biological Art and Kaplica Gallery. BioTehna is a platform for interdisciplinary research on life sciences and a series of workshops for youngsters and students, each mentored by expert/s in a specific scientific field. Create and [...]
After our first experiments with the BubbleBot at the NanoŠmano lab and evening a playful experimentation we had to look more into them. So Robertina and dusjagr met for NanoBRKFST at dusjagr labs II, this time we got the right concentration of H2O2 and were ready to rock the nanorockets.
see some of our experimentations on [...]
Some reflections from the BioSense DuDu workshop as part of NanoŠmano – LifeSystems / ŽiviSistemi. Paula Pin, together with the NanoŠmano Team, Marc, Romie, Stefan and Bostjan, spent twice 3 hours with some kids in the garden, investigating new ways to sense, interact, play with living things.
