Ideas

-bacteria that prevents corrosion

-Time keeper or clock

-Combustible bacteria

-Related to weather - smell of rain

-Bacteria that is resistant to Scientific Probing/Instruments

-Mirror of bacteria

-Buoyant bacteria

-Interactive bacteria(painting)

-Another creature made from bacteria

-Bacteria and sound

 - Bacteria visualizations. (Both colour changes and 'choreographed' movement)

-Neuro transmitters- bacteria as sensors for emotions

-Glue

-Bacteria that detects cravings

-Magnetic bacteria

-Self mutating Bacteria

-Lie detector

-Bacteria creates an identity

-Bacteria becoming material on death

-Constructing a 'Bacterial Ecology'

-Bacteria that acts like oil

 - A lubricant
 - A liquid that can withstand high temperatures
  • Facilitate a group of children to design their 'perfect creature' through visual/tactile media and then draw from these experiences and ideas to build another structure.
  • Basic information on micro biology-synthetic biology becomes accessible in the forms of brochures/charts/posters in the team's work space.

Workshop

-May 15

-We discussed two Claire Pentacost Readings-Beyond Face and Critical Inventory of BioArt .

-The gist of the Pentacost readings were that artists work with the symbolic and that the Artist's consent to work and learn in public is important.
-We also discussed the political and cultural implications of Scientific Authority.
-We also looked at Tuur Van Balen's Urban Geography project
-Most of the Ideas[see above] today, dealt with the use of bacteria as 
   -a) A sensor or Reactor - (to Inputs,emotions,light..etc)
    -b) A Producer (of energy, proteins..etc)
     -c) A Material

-Is there Any way in which we can look at Bacteria from a purely non-symbiotic / non-anthropomorphic viewpoint? -Can we use our technological "progress" to give a non-selfish gift back to our ecological siblings?

-Replace financial transactions with Bacteria


-May 16

Here's some creatures we created using techno-scientific jargon and aesthetics:


Today's reading was called Speculative Fabulations for Technoculture's Generation by Donna Haraway.

-The article is primarily a review of the Australian artist Patricia Piccinini's work and a recapitulation of Haraway's philosophies .

-One of the things enduring about the reading was her appeal to "love" our creations, not in a tech.no- phillic sense but in a more nurturing and caring way.
