Denisa Kera

Denisa Kera is a philosopher and a designer, who uses prototypes to rethink history of science, but also future scenarios related to emerging technologies. She views prototypes as critical probes and tools for public deliberation, reflection and participation in science. In 2013 she became a collector of DIYbio prototypes and Hackteria network archivist. The collection will support open science and citizen science advocacy. The open hardware prototypes enable us to map the network between community labs, alternative R&D places (Hackerspaces, FabLabs), DIYbio movements, and citizen science initiatives. They revive tinkering and 16.century pre-modern science, but also serve as tools of democratizing science and supporting R&D in the Global South. Denisa Kera has an extensive experience as a curator of exhibitions and projects related to art, technology and science, and previous career in internet start-ups and journalism. Currently, she works as an Assistant Professor at the National University of Singapore and Asia Research Institute fellow, where she is bringing together Science, Technology, and Society (STS) studies with Interactive Media Design. Between 2010 – 2012 she was organizing the DIYbio Singapore movement, which is becoming active again as part of the Hackteria network in SE Asia and gathers a community of scientists and designers interested in open hardware for science projects.
