Hackteria field trip & Live/Life AV-Jam Session @ Poolloop, Zürich

Throughout the Poolloop Festival in Zurich, 1.- 7. July 2013, we are setting up a lab for the experimentation at the interface of living materials and audio/visual experimentation. Feel free to join us to explore the sound of microscopic worms, the visual potentials of blood sucking leeches and other playful experiments. There will be laser!

Field Trip to Appenzell, Wednesday, 3rd July, 10 – 20h

On the field trip, you will collect different bio material such as plants, worms, insects etc. in order to analyse it and use the data to modulate sound and video. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on these field and DIY lab experiences to make their own artworks and sound recordings.

Single day workshop on Wednesday from 10 a.m. till 8 p.m. / 20 CHF (incl. travel, material and bugs).
Limited number of participants!
Please make your reservation directly to: marc[at]

We shall go via Appenzell, Wasserauen to the Seealpsee, where we’ll explore the local environment. We then continue via Urnäsch and see where we end up…

BioJammin’ Session, @Starkart, Wednesday, 3rd July, 20h – open

During the whole evening we will explore our “souvenirs” from the field trip and use them for various audio-video experimentations. Together with the mentors everybody is welcome to join us, observe and wonder, listen and enjoy the sound of nematodes and leeches. As a joint jamming session with the open vj lab by videokultur we will experiment further with our new micro/macro pets collected from Appenzell and Slovenia.
