Biolab X Hexagram X Ars Electronica Material Workshops

On September 9th at 10am EST / 4pm CEST, Brice Ammar-Khodja, Vanessa Mardirossian, and Matthew Halpenny led three separate material workshops on sensitive membranes, textile dyes, and open-source microbial fuel cells.

Brice presented a short video that showcased three research-creation projects exploring the concept of screen-membranes:, Fossilation, and Blob Detection.

Vanessa led a live cooking show and introduced participants to techniques for non-toxic and local textile dyes creation from food waste and bacteria.

Matthew discussed the research-creation process followed during the making of their open-source microbial fuel cells — energy storage devices that slowly harvest energy (ions) from their environment.
