Overview

Finally the second HackteriaLab will take place this summer in Romainmôtier, Switzerland. HackteriaLab 2011 will be comprised of two sections. The first being the creative development and research phase of the „Retreat“ at L'Arc, Romainmôtier (VD) and the second a „Reflection“ comprising the public dissemination and communication events in Yverdon, Lausanne and Zurich as the culmination of the retreat. A highly interdisciplinary and multicultural group of artists and scientists will collaborative work and share their knowledge with various networks of local artists and institutions and a public audience.

HackteriaLab 2011 | The Retreat

The event starts with a 7 days workshop/lab with invited international and local artists/scientists/biohackers (approx 10-15 people). During that time we can collaborate, discuss and work on ideas about DIY biology, ArtScience, BioHacking, Microscopy, NanoBio etc…

HackteriaLab 2011 Schedule

During the hackteria lab, we will be working mostly in the monastry

HackteriaLab 2011 Commons

On the HackteriaLab 2011 Commons we can discuss different topics of interest, share information and links, collect code and collaborate in the future.

HackteriaLab 2011 Material/Tools

On the HackteriaLab 2011 Material page we can plan and collect more information about the material the participants will bring in and also what still needs to be ordered. During the hackteria workshop/lab there will be a large collection of materials and tools available, including some living microorganisms, lab gear, nanoparticles, cameras, lasers and general electronic and mechanical parts, to be used/shared by all the participants.

Andy will be coming directly from China. If anyone wants any cheap, weird, interesting Chinese electronic stuff let me know and I'll see if I can find it in the electronics markets and bring it over.

HackteriaLab 2011 Playground

Due to our participant of the genus "juvenile human being" we will have child care to support us during the hackteria lab. more information about the HackteriaLab 2011 Playground can be found here.

How to get there

As you can imagine the Retreat will happen in a remote area in the Swiss Jura mountains. So its not too easy to find travel information through international ticket sites. In case you organise your travel, just make sure you get to Switzerland from the right direction and arrive in one of the nearby major cities, such as Geneva from the south, or Basel/Zürich form the North and West. Also local train fares are quite expensive without special residency tickets, so we will provide a minibus to collectively pick you up and drive you to the monastry.
