Generic Lab Equipment

Urs tools.jpg To start up an independent and open lab it is crucial to get affordable lab equipment (besides having an enthusiastic and open group of people, see How to start a BioLab). Most of the tools we use are do it your self (DIY) and open source and are built from widely available and recycled parts found in consumer products such as DVD drives, hard disks and pc fans.

HUMUS sapiens

Humus sapiens.png We bring DIY (do it yourself) and DIWO (do it with others) approaches as well as an open source based ‘hacker spirit’ into soil ecology. We invite you to reflect on current scientific discourses and critical societal challenges through hands-on tinkering and curiosity driven research. We are building a network of soil enthusiasts for long-term collaborative research and invite YOU to join us.

About Hackteria

Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art, DIY Biology, Generic Laboratory Infrastructure

Hackteria is an international network active since 2009 in the field of Open Source Biological Art. As a community platform hackteria tries to encourage the collaboration of scientists, hackers and artists to combine their experitise, write critical and theoretical reflections, share simple instructions to work with lifescience technologies and cooperate on the organization of workshops, temporary labs, hack-sprints and meetings. Hackteria is a network of people practicing DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others) biology with an interest in art, design and interdisciplinary cooperation. Hackteria operates on a global scale, and is based on a web platform and a wiki for sharing knowledge, which enable anyone to learn but also test different ways of hacking living systems. Hackteria is not based in a physical space, and its goal is to allow artists, scientists and hackers to collaborate and test various biohacking and bioart techniques outside the official laboratories and art institutions, basically anywhere in the world.

See our front website also for more info, news and articles.

A lot has been written about hackteria, see our overview of press and media.

About the International Hackteria Society
Under the name “International Hackteria Society”, is an association according to article 60ff of the Swiss Civil Code (ZGB) with seat in Zürich. The association aims to guarantee the organizational and financial processes of the project “Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art”. It wants to further development and access to practical knowledge in artistic engagement with the lifesciences. It wants to create platforms for public discussions and invite international artists and scientists for critical and theoretical discourse. The association works as a non- profit organization to reach its aims.

HUMUS.Sapiens-Field Notes

Field_Notes - Ecology of Senses, in Kilpisjärvi, Northern Lapland, will explore the role of sensing within this convergence: the ways we make sense of the world, how worlds are made through our senses and the changing sense of self which comes along. We expanded our original sensorium considerably with technology. The spectrum is wide: in it we find our own human body senses, but also animal- and bio-sensors we learned to appropriate, chemical and electronic sensors and also the future prospect of a fully quantified computational planet with its first implementations of orbit tracked, networked bird swarms or fully wired forests already being tested.

Let’s go underground! Within HUMUS.Sapiens-Field Notes we are interested to explore approaches to sense the hidden and dark places which lie below our feet. The complex networks of microscopic organisms that co-exist with us in the dark soils underneath the plant cover are fundamental in sustaining life for the creatures above ground, as well for the whole planet’s atmosphere.

MedTech-DIY @ Fablab Luzern, HSLU, Luzern

Das Modul verbindet Anwendungen der Medizintechnik mit Do It Yourself (DIY) Ansätzen. Dadurch wird das tiefere Verständnis von Medizintechnischen Geräten durch einen direkten, interdisziplinären und möglichst selbstgesteuerten Zugang gefördert. Basierend auf verschiedenen elektrophysiologischen Messmodulen (EMG, EKG, EOG, EEG) entwickeln die Studierenden im Team Ideen für innovative Produkte. Erste Prototypen werden mit den Mitteln der Digitalen Fabrikation hergestellt und getestet.

DIWO Culture: HaSTA @ MAS Art and Society, ZHdK, Zürich

HaSTA DIWO Culture : Hacking art/Sci/Tech & Activism

To engage with the most pressing issues (environment, social injustice, globalisation) of society, artist have embraced new transdisciplinary practices, which combine the use of open source tools (OST) and hacking strategies in a collaborative manner with "others". DIWO (Do It With Others) Culture will introduce such strategies through case studies, hands-on experimentation and team projects to the students. This first edition will focus on OST for environmental monitoring and artistic interpretation.

Open Science Friction and Noise Disturbance & Performative lab]o[dy Ritual @ Open Source Body, Paris

Performative labody Ritual

Pechblenda/Hackteria as a transhackfeminist queer science laboratories wants to propose a time and space for the confluence of cyborgs, cyber-witches and degenerate alchemists. Open the lab to experiment and be traversed by practical experience of noiSEX disturbance from the DIWo tools, fluids and non static bodies.

Projects
Project 1: The Bacterial Net- Microbial Telecommunications.
2.jpg

Quorum sensing is a type of decision-making process used by decentralized groups to coordinate behavior. Many species of bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate their gene expression according to the local density of their population.The Bacterial Net attempts to transfer this decision making process over the Internet. Using Microcontollers and sensors to detect bacterial population and a public web service http://www.pachube.com that helps transfer sensor information. The Bacterial Net is an exploration in bringing the Internet into the Natural Ecosystem.
