Workshop: Aquaponics

Build an aquaponics system

Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of vegetables and fish. The best way to produce food in the city, because it hardly takes up any space. The fish poo feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. Not a drop is wasted. If you'd like to learn how to build an aquaponics system, join us for this hands-on workshop. Get your ticket(s) online.

  • Aquaponics?

    The Aquaponic Gardening Community describes aquaponics as "the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrients. This is an environmentally, friendly, natural food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics, without the need to discard any water or filtrate or add chemical fertilizer." The Mediamatic Aquaponics team is currently building an urban oasis based on this ecofriendly system.

Quantum transportation and vintage Fly

Weird Science with Tim Taminiau

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 successfully teleported quantum information across 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 the classic sci-fi movie The Fly (1958), we can envision the possibilities and pitfalls 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 Public members.

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 ...

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.
