dusjagr's research / networking trip to Thailand

AST-directory ProH.jpg

What is it about?

dusjagr goes for a research trip to deepen his existing collaborations in Thailand, extend the global hackteria network, explore and find new interesting intitiatives. Focus on DIY workshop methodologies, Bioart, art&science in general, sound and synth making communities, and open to surprise encounters.

Hopefully we can aim at longer term collaborations? HackteriaLab Thai? I have the t-shirt somewhere 🐵

Topics of interests go towards:

  • Art & Science: find interesting local initiatives. BioArt, add new people to forum and hackteria network
  • Media Arts: What practices and artists are around?
  • thGAP: find partners and themes to work on future artistic research around human germline editing and art in the different cultural and economic context of Thailand.
  • GOSH: finding interesting hybrid practitioners working with and on Open Science Hardware
  • DIY & Synth maker communities, that work creatively and with the arts
  • Meet curators and practitioners
  • General overview of the spectrum in art scenes and it's workings

Workshop: Make Your Own Synthesizer Noisy Toy

Date and time: Saturday, 3.Dec, 16.00 - 20:00

Location: Pa rang cafe & Art stay - Open door 15:00

Map:37/1 Sinharat road Lane2 Chiang mai old town

Limited places available: First come - First serve

Prize: ฿200 (or reduced prize ฿100)

Description

Turn on your soldering irons!

Together with Helmi and dusjagr, we will build a simple do-it-yourself synthesizer, based on the "classic" µ-Noise circuit by SGMK, made since 2008 thousands of times all over the world! Only with a few electronic components, resistors, IC, potentiometer, light sensors, we will solder the little noisy toy and jam together. We will guide you into "how to solder", describe and explain the circuit, make electronic music with square wave oscillators and LFO. All particpants will make their own synth and can take it home!

Helmi Hardian (Surabaya, Indonesia) | BIR residensi

Helmi

Helmi Hardian is a grassroots artist and ghetto scientist, with a specific interest in cooking and smoking at the same time. He lives in Surabaya, the city that is well known for its industry and technology, as well as being the center of electronic component trading (chiefly, Pasar Genteng). Hence, almost all of his works are closely related to science and technology as the medium of creativity. He is the co-founder of Waft Lab, a creative-based initiative that works at interdisciplinary practices. Currently, he focuses on tech development through DIY/DIWO culture and playing his role in researching, hacking, or deconstructing daily materials to provide some devices with new functional aspects, as well as developing workshop kits, lecturing contents, and presentation materials, which aim to learn, share, and exchange knowledge.

HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta

Watch the full movie / documentary: "SENI GOTONG ROYONG: HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta"

Citizen science has long contributed to the health of local communities by making people aware of their environment in the form of oral histories and traditional wisdom. Recently, international open source and maker movements have been actively engaging with the life sciences to focus on the environment. This brought a revival of the tradional knowledge as well as an opportunity for innovation and a model for public participation in science. These activities are becoming influential policy forces changing how we produce and share knowledge as an iterative and collective process. Yogyakarta, Indonesia, has been one of the most active hubs in this movement.

HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta was held in April 2014 as a two-weeks making-oriented gathering of researchers, artists, scientists, academicians, hackers and whatevers in Yogyakarta. It expanded on ideas and methodologies about BioArt, DIY biology, DIWO (Do-It-With-Others), appropriate technology, art and science, and biohacking, developed during the previous versions of HLab10 - Dock18, HLab11 - Romainmotier both in Switzerland and HLab13 - Bangalore, India. HLab14 was hosted by LIFEPATCH - citizen initiative in art, science and technology and co-organized together with HACKTERIA | Open Source Biological Art in collaboration with various regional partners.

This book tried to assemble a collection of essays written by the participants, asked to reflect on their own experiences, individually or collectively, which only gives a glimpse into all the projects and exchanges that happend during HLab14. With a short overview of the programme and activities, selected photo impressions and the exhibition manual the book is rounded up and can be an entry point to explore further our online resources and serve as an inspiration for transdisciplinary collaborative practices.

GOSH - Gathering for Open Science Hardware

From microscopes to microfluidics and water quality test equipment, hardware is a vital part of science. Advances in instrumentation have been central to scientific revolutions and access to hardware shapes the work of communities conducting research globally on a daily basis. However, the current supply chain for science hardware limits access for many groups of people and impedes creativity and customisation. Open Science Hardware (OScH) means sharing designs for scientific hardware openly online that anyone is freely able to use, modify and even commercialize. This approach could drastically reduce the costs of research while enabling people to collaborate and learn in new ways.

The Global Open Science Hardware community supports OScH by convening meetings such as the Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH), publications, activities and providing a forum for the community.

See more on GOSH website and join the forum to discuss!

Together we will make Open Science Hardware ubiquitous by 2025 and build new futures for science.

This booklet describes a journey of learning from each other’s workshop methodologies with a specific example of “GBMN – Gentle But Make Noise”, a creative sound and electronics workshop, developed by Arnont Nongyao and reproduced and reflected upon by Marc Dusseiller.

Gentle But Make Noise (GBMN) journey (GBMN workshop journey by Arnont & Marc). This is an experimental sound workshop about “How to make a simple noise generator by pencil drawing or LDR sensor and a simple electronic circuit on the local materials”, participants found local objects (plastic bottles, wood, paper, etc) and made simple noise generators on the objects as unique instruments. After that we are playing GBMN together.

A reflection on the workshops series Mind thGAP - Transgenic Human Genome Alternatives Project, and an invitation to collaborate on the CGCB - Creative Germline Construct Bank, an online open source bioinformatics database of diverse genetic constructs for germline entry using the GOSHPA - General Open Source Plasmid for Human Arts, as a chassis for transgene infection into a newly fertilized ovum.

Adam Zaretsky, Marc Dusseiller, Cristian Delgado, Paula Pin, Mary Maggic and many collaborators worldwide. The events were held in early summer 2021 at the Hackteria ZET - Open Science Lab in Zürich, Switzerland, and online.

"Genetically modifying the human germline with novel and creative genomic alterations is more aesthetically nuanced in an orthogonal to the contemporary sense than your average clinical CRISPR baby applique."

Its a zine, and QR code invite to collab and be a part of the only online open source bioinformatics database of diverse genetic constructs for human germline entry. All the CGCB genes were chosen publicly by amateur bioartists, citizen scientists and DIY-BIO hobbyists. used for for transgene infection into a newly fertilized ovum during home IVF, garage human embryo design and transgenic human alternative brood breeding without copyright or proprietary nuisance.
