A Sausage experiment with Brandt&Levie
Did you know that the taste of a sausage is determined by its surroundings? Together with Brandt&Levie we have started a new, four-week-long experiment of sausage fermentation. 7 Organizations are competing to become the best tasting place of Amsterdam. Who will win this fungal challenge? Waag Society, Vice, Vuurtoren Eiland, Mediamatic, KesselsKramer, Brandt&Levie or Keuringsdienst van Waarde? Find out during Bio-me and join the unofficial comparative tasting at the opening of Kunstformen Der Natur on September 18th, 20:30.
7 Different cultural locations in Amsterdam are competing in a fermentation competition with sausages from Brandt & Levie. You might not know it, but a sausage develops it's flavors because of fermentation: its interaction with local natural flora of micro-organisms on the spot. Every location received a package of sausages to be hung in their location. After a period of four weeks we will remove them and see what the difference is in taste, colour and consistency. The participating locations are: Brandt & Levie, Vice Magazine, Waag Society, KesselsKramer, Vuurtoreneiland, Keuringsdienst van Waarde and Mediamatic....
Interview with the beer curator for Bio-me
Henriette Waal (1982), who graduated from the Eindhoven Design Academy, ‘Man and Public Space’ department, is an artist and designer - but also a beer brewer. She’s beer curator for Mediamatic’s Bio-me programme, and puts together the programme for ‘Bier Beraad’. This part of the festival focuses on yeasts, fermentation, bacterial cultures and brewing beer.
You studied at the Eindhoven Design Academy first, now you’re a beer brewer. How did that come about?
I studied at the Design Academy, ‘Man and Public Space’. And I studied at the Sandberg Institute. Six years ago I was asked to work on a project on the edge of Tilburg, at an old water purification plant. The idea was to make it into a national park. This is where I came up with the idea of the Buitenbrouwerij (Outside Brewery), because brewing beer is a way to purify water. Apparently, there were a lot of beer brewing hobbyists living around the plant, brewing in sheds and garages. I involved them in the p...
learn to build your own!
3D printers are evolving and are quickly finding their way into ateliers and even our homes. This rapid development is due to its fertile community, where enthusiasts openly share information about building and designing with 3D printers. This is your chance to get involved, learn how to build a 3D printer and start printing your 3 dimensional designs.
In collaboration with 3D printer expert Bas Molkenboer from 3dprintingforyou and artist Eric Klarenbeek, we set up a workshop where you can learn how to build your own 3D printer!
The model we will be building is one of the latest 'Delta' types, called a Rostock.
This workshop is meant for all levels of expertise.
If this is the first time you heard about a 3D printer, it's a great introduction to start building and using them. If you have already been building 3D printers, this could be an opportunity to ask expert Bas Molkenboer your more advanced questions, e.g. about modification of the unit....
