Videotage

Videotage is a leading non-profit organisation in facilitating, promoting and presenting new media art in Hong Kong. Since 1986, Videotage has developed itself from an umbrella for media artists to a media art and culture network for cross-disciplinary cultural productions and international exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Session 1: hackteria | open source biological art
Time: 2:00-2:30pm

Hackteria is a collection of Open Source Biological Art Projects instigated in February 2009 by Andy Gracie (UK), Marc Dusseiller (CH) and Yashas Shetty (IN). The aim of the project is to develop a rich web resource for people interested in or developing projects that involve DIY bioart, open source software and electronic experimentation. In this session, co-founder Dr. Marc Dusseiller will introduce the field of bioart in a simple language by explaining the works of hackteria. Audience will get to understand how hackteria. as a community platform, encourages the collaboration of scientists, hackers and artists to combine their expertise, write critical and theoretical reflections, share simple instructions to work with lifescience technologies and cooperate on the organization of workshops, festival and meetings.

Session 2: Transdisciplinary Approaches on Education at the Art & Science Interface
Time: 2:40-3:10pm

In his work, Dr. Marc Dusseiller has been developing various new approaches in working with science and technology by bridging with creative and artistic methods. The overview of his work shows how new educational tools have been investigated both in education of non-scientists, such as children, artists or a general gallery audience, or in university education of scientist to include critical and creative thinking by integrating artistic approaches. Hands-on Workshop: Audio/visual experiments with DIY microscopes/hacked webcams.

and learn Pure Data for Microscopy.
Date: 15 November (Sun)
Time: 2:00-6:00pm (4 hrs)

(You can choose to attend only one session, but attending both would be more fun.)
*Participants are required to bring their own laptop (PC, Mac, Linux will all work).
*Please note NO specific background knowledge is needed for this workshop. Anyone could join.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Let’s hack into the world of LIVE microorganisms!

In this workshop, participants will learn how to hack webcams to be used as microscopes, observe the behavior and motion of the water bears and other microorganisms, hack into electronic devices to integrate into bioelectronics culture devices and build habitats for the animals.

The workshop is an experimental hands-on workshop with multilayered outcome for people interested in BioArt, DIYbiology, microscopy, audio/visual experimentation and simple technological interaction with living microorganisms. Participants will become involved in sourcing and isolating microorganisms such as tardigrades or nematodes. They will learn how to hack webcams for live video microscopy and then develop free libre open hardware and software environments. This will let these organisms be both viewed and become the subjects for simple interactions. A primary aim of the activity is to demonstrate that scientific/artistic experimentation can take place within the DIY and open source domains, and that biology and custom electronics can be friends.

The experiments will take place in a close-up view of living microorganisms (e.g. water bears aka tardigrades, amoebae, nematodes and collected organisms from urban environments), which appears to be a world by itself maybe due to the scaling and the amplification of a microscope, but maybe also due to all parameters of imagination that the microcosmos provokes. With the image and the movement of the organisms, the participants are encouraged to collect inspiration and bridge video and sound to what they experience with these small “animalcules”, as termed by their first observer Leeuwenhoek in 1677 The software will be based around the use of Pd (and some of its libraries) and Arduino. The DIY video microscopes will allow various forms of video tracking via PiDiP and its possibilities for generation of sound and visual environments through Pd. Participants will also be free to use processing / wiring or any other open source tools they prefer.


ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR/

Marc R. Dusseiller is a transdisciplinary scholar, lecturer for Micro- and Nanotechnology and artist. He works in an integral way to combine science, art and education. He performs DIY-workshops in lo-fi electronics, music and robotics, has made various short movies and is currently developing means to perform biological science (mammalian cell culture, microfluidics, live-microscopy) in a DIY fashion in your kitchen or your atelier. He is also co-organizing dock18, Room for Mediacultures, and various other engagments like the diy* festival as the president of the Swiss Mechatronic Art Society, SGMK.

ABOUT FEED!/

FEED! is a series of programs that put new media art into a border vision in technological world and the
network culture. Like the renowned Ted Talk, FEED! introduces talks, workshops, and conferences by artists,
designers, scientists/ engineers, entrepreneurs, architects or other professionals that are innovative and
original in ideas. The programs will be documented and archived in videotage’s library and website in the near future.
