September 13, 2013,Â Splinterfields Workshops, Brussels
Splinterfields is an initiative of several Brussels-based organisations (Constant, FoAM, nadine and OKNO) active in the fields of ecological, technological and media arts to foster collaborative, agile and flexible learning. The programme of workshops, study groups and field-tests is open to artists, designers, technologists and other generalists curious to explore tools and mindware for experiments in contemporary culture and daily life.TheÂ workshopÂ is designed as a master class, bringing together practitioners and enthusiasts in the art, science and technology of biochemistry and fermentation to learn from one another and find connections between their respective fields of interest.
FoAMâ€™s Splinterfields workshops explore emergingÂ technological artsÂ through the lens of preindustrial crafts and contemporary sciences. The idea is to learnÂ with bio-hacking, the fundamentals of biochemistry and the craft of fermentation.The workshop will include theoretical discussions aboutÂ biochemical conceptsÂ with hands-on experiments in a wet lab and kitchen.
