We are starting a series of talks/presentations aiming to discuss openly the multitudes of bio art | sci | tec and related practices. HSC (Hackteria Swiss Curriculum) is a cooperation of Hackteria and Corner College, Kochstrasse 1, 8004 Zürich.

HSC#1: The case study and review of HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta

Date: 14.05.2014 – 20h

Speaker: Marc Dusseiller (CH)

Researcher and artist Marc Dusseiller, formerly know as Pak Marcjono, will give a presentation of the most recent HackteriaLab taking place in Yogyakarta (Indonesia) from 13. – 25. April 2014, a collaboration of hackteria and their long term partner, lifepatch – citizen initiative in art, science and technology, together with diverse local partners. The two week collaborative and interdisciplinary practice of HLab14 was defined by three ongoing Ecological Research Nodes within the practice of the local Indonesian facilitators. The topics are tightly related to the daily life of Yogyakarta. They are: 1. Biorecovery of Volcanic Soil, 2. Environmental Monitoring of the Rivers, 3. Biodiversity conservation in Wonosadi Forest, together with the focus on Open Source Hardware and DIY & Low-Cost Laboratory Infrastructure.

HLab14 brought together a large group of international and regional participants, of makers, artists, scientists, hackers, educators to investigate and foster the concept of DIWO (do-it-with-others), bio art and citizen science. HLab 14 had a strong focus on workshopology, sharing and collaboration, field-trips and musical experimentation, and was additionally presented in an exhibition format at LAF, Yogyakarta from 25 April – 2. May.

Lindsay Kelly

Working in the kitchen, Lindsay Kelley’s art practice and scholarship explore how the experience of eating changes when technologies are being eaten. She is working on her book, The Bioart Kitchen, which emerges from her work at the University of California Santa Cruz (Ph.D in the History of Consciousness and MFA in Digital Art and New Media). Lindsay is an Associate Lecturer at COFA UNSW as well as an International Research Fellow at the Center for Fine Art Research, Birmingham City University.


Members of Australia’s only Biohacking group will join us to discuss their projects and activities. They invite us to come along and help them make stuff glow and cure health problems as citizen scientists.



Andrew Tuckwell from BIOMOD will be speaking about the project briefly. BIOMOD is an annual, international bio-nanotechnology competition for undergraduates run by the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. Students design and construct simple machines and structures on a nano-scale out of the basic molecules of life (DNA, RNA and Proteins) and present their work at a conference at Harvard University in November.

The Art – Science Soirée will be an evening of presentations and a panel discussions with our invited international and Swiss guests. This will be a great opportunity to present and disseminate the collaborative project we are organizing in Indonesia in April 2014, the HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta. Additionally we invited the Finnish Bioart Society to present their transdisciplinary activities during their artistic research residency in Kilpisjärvi, Lappland, Field_Notes – From Landscape to the Laboratory. Our partners from lifepatch - citizen initiative in art, science and technology will show their participatory art-science activities on ecologies such as the Merapi Volcano and the Yogya Rivers. For the discussion we have invited the Swiss art historian Boris Magrini to moderate the evening.

Presentation by Brian Degger, British Arts Council, 22 July 2014, UK

A Cicada in the Hand

Indonesian rice goddesses, bio art and centipedes as long as your arm - it's all in a day's work for artist and scientist Dr Brian Degger.

Dr Brian Degger visited Yogyakarta, Indonesia for HackteriaLab14 (HLab14), an open source biological art lab hosted by Lifepatch (Indonesia) and facilitated by Hackteria. One of the challenges to HLab14's participants was to redefine and try out how an artistic practice can support social innovation, cultural shifts, change and at the same time able to be positioned in its own discipline. For the ecological research node (the name for the different sections of the lab) he visited the Wonosadi Forest. Here he talks about his experience.

"I am so thankful to them for introducing us to the forest, for ferrying all those tents up to the Ngenuman plateau and for keeping us fed and happy. Wonosadi, is a place I would love to spend more time in with the Green Tech Community."

  • Things I learnt: the challenge of glass working from recycled glass/the awe of Ivan (a glass artist) who makes it look easy, bookbinding using envelopes, silkscreening t-shirts.
  • Things I liked: citizen sensing with a GPS enabled coconut, meeting a live fish-food catcher.
  • Things I exhibited: a shaking apparatus made from a dead cddrive, a series of artificial pools with river code aquatic inhabitants in conjunction with the BIOSC project.
  • Future collaborations? Yes! Plan to get back to Yogyarkarta for the World Critical Making Summit late 2015


Continued collaboration during THF, Calafou, Spain


Workshops and Discussions during KopenLab, Copenhagen, Denmark

Adeline, DIY singapore and a bunch of hackteria geeks are doing maaany workshops and sessions during KopenLab

At the the early developing stage of HLab14, the co-organiser of KopenLab Martin Malthe Borch joined several skype meetings and eventually came to Yogyakarta to partake HackteriaLab 2014 between 13 - 28 April. The exchange amongst artistic context and citizen science lead to several spontaneous workshops and continuous researches which now we bring few of them to KopenLab dated 21 - 26 June.

A reflection residency is co-organized with the Finnish Bioart Society, to continue some of the projects in the new ecological environment of northern Lappland, in Kilpisjärvi, a post-tropical sub-arctic experiment. Additionally we are aiming to provide travel opportunities to allow individual HackteriaLab participants to visit these other initiatives across the globe and further develop their projects in the new cultural and environmental milieus.


Temporary Lab and Workshops at Port Izmir Triennial (Cancelled, maybe something independant later this year)

In Mai there will be a post-session in İzmir. We have a very nice collaboration with the guest curator Sasa Nagerboj and Andreas Treske, to represent the HackteriaLab already remotely during April. And we will then do a temporary lab in Izmir, 18-25 of May, as a collaboration of lifepatch, Indonesia, and some Swiss members of the hackteria network. İzmir is a large metropolis in the western extremity of Anatolia and the third most populous city in Turkey, after Istanbul and Ankara.
