The article by Marni Usheroff about biotic games, wetPONG and general discussion about the use of lifeforms in play has finally been published. I, dusjagr, was happy to speak through skype with her, explaining the history of the wetPONG course I did at FHNW since 2008, which is where the whole DIY microscopy started, even before we started the hackteria website.
“Especially in the field of nanotechnology, you wouldn’t expect to do this kind of trashy do-it-yourself setup for practical teaching,” Dusseiller says between drags of a cigarette. “But that’s my style … I think the idea of the game was very fruitful for inspiring the students — instead of just giving them simple measuring tasks in a lab course, which is usually done using expensive equipment, to find out something that’s already known.”

Throughout the Poolloop Festival in Zurich, 1.- 7. July 2013, we are setting up a lab for the experimentation at the interface of living materials and audio/visual experimentation. Feel free to join us to explore the sound of microscopic worms, the visual potentials of blood sucking leeches and other playful experiments. There will be laser!
This week we finished with the first series of “frogology” field trips lead by Brandon Ballengée. The last 5 days, together with various local participants, Brandon went out to the Barija, checking various sites, ponds, lakes, canals in the area around Ig, to investigate the local frog and tadpole populations, checking their physical conditions, wounds, [...]
