HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta

HackteriaLab 2014 is a creative development and research phase in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, where a highly interdisciplinary and multicultural group will collaboratively work and share their knowledge with various networks of local artists and institutions, as well as a public audience. The nodes of the projects are based on ongoing activities by Lifepatch with actual conditions in three ecologies, bioremediation of volcanic soil on Mount Merapi, water monitoring and sanitation in Code River and biodiversity conservation in Wonosadi Forest. The participatory process will be documented on the Hackteria wiki platform and in form of video. We will explore novel formats of an exhibition followed with a booklet publication to further communicate our activities.

Network of International and Regional Partners
The programs attached to HLab14 are now organized by Lifepatch in close collaboration with the International Hackteria Society and affiliated with both local and internatioanl collaborators. The program involves field research, participatory art practices, open laboratory, retreats and workshops. Designated final activities are two days of presentations from all makers/participants and an exhibition of selected processes followed by workshops. These two particular activities will be opening up an opportunity to meet and exchange for all participants and local practitioners to create chances and possibilities for future collaborations.

Call Closed!
For the last call we were reaching out to motivated artists/makers/researchers, from the SE-Asian region to join and collaborate at HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta.

Please contact the HLab14 Coordinators with a short biography and a detailed description on how you see your contribution to the HLab 14 main research nodes.

We expect each of the participants subscribe to at least one topic (Ecologic Research Nodes) and work together with facilitators under three main topics tightly relating to the daily life of Yogyakarta. They are: 1. Bioremediation of Volcanic Soil, 2. Environmental Monitoring of the Rivers in Yogya, 3. Biodiversity conservation in Wonosadi Forest, together with the focus on Open Source Hardware and DIY & Low-Cost Laboratory Infrastructure. The local communities that have been working intensively with the issues with the local people will participate as facilitators within the framework of HLab14.
