Sample hackteria workshop.jpg

The workshop is an experimental make-workshop with multilayered outcome for people interested in sound, DIY-biology, microscopy and simple technological interaction with living microorganisms. Participants will become involved in hacking webcams to be used for live-video microscopy, finding microorganisms from the urban environment, and then develop open hardware and software tools with which these organisms can be both viewed and become the subjects for simple interactions.
