Quantum transportation and vintage Fly

Weird Science with Tim Taminiau

  • Fly / Human hybrid after imaginary teleportation fuck-up. - 

    the first version of The Fly was released in 1958. Directed by Kurt Neumann it featured David Henson, Patricia Owens and Vincent Price.

  • If you could teleport today, where would you go?
    It might seem far fetched, but in this day and age teleportation is a serious topic of research instead of speculation. In fact, researchers at the Quantum Transport Team from the TU Delft actually made a quantum chip teleport over a 3 meter distance!

    At Weird Science we will put things in perspective. By combining a Pop-Science lecture by scientist Tim Taminiau with the screening of a classic sci-fi movie we will envision the possibilities of teleportation. Food at 19:00 - talk and screening at 20:00.

    Get your tickets now simply by clicking the pink "member" button in the top left corner. Free for Subbacultcha members.

    • As part of the "Quantum Transport Team" from Ronald Hanson (TU Delft), Tim Taminiau investigates novel quantum mechanical phenomena in nanometer-scale structures. A.k.a teleportation on the level of single atoms. They aim to find fundamental breakthroughs and possible applications - for instance in quantum computing. For this evening Tim will give you an informal lecture on teleportation. Explaining the misconceptions and possibilities by the hand of a true classic sci-fi movie. No prior knowledge needed! Tim will explain it all.

Sexy plants & illuminating nano particles

Biotalk by Špela Petrič and Matthew Whiteside

How to visualize what is not visible for the human eye? And how to design for the non-human? For the monthly Biotalks we invite Bio-Artists and Scientists to clarify their research and practice. This time we dive into the dirty secrets and sexual behavior of plants above ground, and a fluorescent exchanging party below ground.
Food at 19.00, talks at 20.00

  • The Plant Sex Consultancy, Sarracenia Purpurea - 

    The exploration of plant-centered design aims to populate the human attitude of convenience, use, fascination, necessity, and ignorance towards the plant realm with strange and quirky reflections, which inform the existing perception of plants. By Pei-Ying Lin, Dimitris Stamatis, Jasmina Weiss, Špela Petrič

  • How to design for the non-human other? As part of The Sex Plant Consultancy dr. Špela Petrič helped design new reproductive methodologies for her vegetal clients addressing problems such as bee extinction, infertility and infection (STD). In her artistic practice Špela combines natural sciences, new media and performance. This also shows in her current project; the launch of Naval Gazing, a 7,5 km kinetic structure in the North Sea intended as non-human architecture to facilitate a micro-ecology.

    To visualize nutrients in soil, bacteria, fungi and plants, researcher Matthew D. Whiteside uses highly fluorescent ...

Exhibition 18 4 391  

Kunstformen Der Natur

Open Wednesday - Sunday

More than a century ago, biologist Ernst Haeckel scored a hit with his amazing illustrations of unseen organisms. We collected all 100 lithographs and blew them up to 5 times life size for our exhibition. Come see the originals next to their hallucinating blow-ups and the works of Dutch architect H.P. Berlage, design studio Bernotat &Co and graphic designers Rudy Guedj, Martin Huger, Olya Troitskaya and Sophie Rogg who got inspired by the secret beauty of nature. Plus the Liquid Gold installation by Sophia Twigt. Open Wed - Sun, 13:00 - 18:00.

Ignite: Soylent, Sexiness and Sea Cucumbers

and 9 other ideas, obsessions and visions

We spent the summer to find the freshest ideas. The 12 speakers of September's Ignite will talk for 5 minutes each about living organisms, a new kind of food, being sexy, hiphop and art and more. Food at 19:00, the first speaker will kick-off at 20:30. Get your tickets online in advance to save a few euros.

  • Speakers

    Jolan van der Wiel

    Jolan uses the natural phenomenon of gravity and magnetism for his designs. After making a series of stools he started collaborating with Iris van Herpen for the Magnetic Moon Dresses: "dresses whose very forms are generated by the phenomenon of attraction and repulsion." His latest project Dragonstone concerns architecture and clay. At Ignite he will explain and show his fascinating design process.
