Location in the Auditorium of the Agricultural Faculty in Gadjah Mada University

Date and Time Tuesday, April 15, from 9:00h to 15:30h


Start 9:00

Lunch Break 12.40 - 13.40

End & Tea 16.00

The symposium aims to expand the idea of citizen initiatives that works on creative and appropriate application in the fields of art, science and technology. We present projects, communities, collectives, groups and individuals that deals with and disseminates tactics of dealing with day-to-day issues within a specific setting (geographical area, similar interests, etc), through educational approaches such as workshops, online tutorials, community-based projects and art practices. The dynamic background and disciplines of all speakers in the symposium represents the colors of HackteriaLab 2014 participants and hopefully reflects our stance on multidisciplinary collaborative practices.

Info about the Speakers and their Presentation

Yashas Shetty

Abstract of Presentation:

Short Bio: Yashas Shetty is an artist and composer based in Bangalore, India. He is currently an artist in residence and faculty at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology. He helped found the Center for Experimental Media Arts at Srishti and has previously taught at design schools across India. His works look at the relationship between language,ecology and technology. He is also one of the founding members of the Hackteria project.

Dr. Matt Baker

Abstract of Presentation:

Short Bio: Matt Baker (DPhil, Oxford 2010) is a biological physicist working on molecular motors at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney. His research career has focussed on the bacterial flagellar motor which rotates the propellor that makes nearly all bacteria swim. This marvel of bionanotechnology is nature's fastest wheel and rotates at up to 1000 Hz, assembles itself into bacterial membranes, and can switch directions in a handful of milliseconds. Matt works on building high resolution microscopes and optical traps to image and exert picoNewton torques on this motor. Currently he is using DNA nanostructures with Dr Lawrence Lee to attempt the first artificial synthesis of the bacterial flagellar motor. Matt has a strong interest in outreach and communications work and has performed a variety of science raps in festivals throughout UK, Europe and Australia. At HackteriaLab2014 Matt wants to get involved with open source hardware and DIY lab equipment and learn from the ingenuity displayed in hacking webcams to see how we can apply it to other types of microscopes.

Matt will introduce the bacterial flagellar motor, as it's an impressive piece of machinery, and discuss how we build microscopes to look at this machine. He'll talk about how we can relate this to citizen science with DIY microscopy, and finally will talk a little bit about his experiences with scientific outreach involving music and rap to a variety of audiences.

Martin Malthe Borch

Abstract of Presentation: Reflections from the intersection of biological engineering, interaction design, art & science. Based on my work and experience with biohacking and Biologigaragen since 2010. Including a few stories from diybio.eu.

Short Bio: Current Activities:

  • Research Assistant IT-University of Copenhagen.
  • Co-founder and chairman of biologigaragaen: www.biologigaragen.org
  • Chairman of Labitat Copenhagen Hackerspace: www.Labitat.dk
  • Initiater and project leader on Copenhagen Citizen Science Center www.KopenLab.dk/space
  • Working on living and sustainable architecture with the copany GXN, Green innovation in architecture http://gxn.3xn.com

Look up. How much living biology can you see right now? Only a house plant? We are biology, and at CIID, Martin is working to integrate the complexity and evolutionary capability of living biology, plants, bacteria and microalgae in design and architecture. He researches and plays with the possibilities of biology in interaction and experience design. We could have bioluminating microalgae tubes in walls and ceilings, living lampshades of lichen that change shape and colour with the season. The self replicating capacity of biology further adds new aspects to sharing of design. Martin discovers new opportunities through learning by doing, always wondering, asking critical questions and having fun. He believes the future holds a big potential for open source business models and innovation by making natural science relevant and accessible through an user oriented design approach. He has a Master degree in Biological Engineering from DTU, specialized in bioreactor engineering and sustainable biorefinery processes. He’s in the steering comity of “Energihøjskolen” the first Danish folk high school based on natural science.
