On lucky number Friday the 13th we invite our friends, visitors, partners and neighbours for Mediamatic's New Year's Reception and the opening of both our Myco Brewery and Arjanna Bode's installation Als een Vis op het Droge. Let's drink, chat and
celebrate the new year together. By the way, did you already see the new mural by Bahia Shehab?!
Earlier this day you can learn how to become nature's apprentice in the free Biomimicry Workshop.

New Year's Reception

17:30 - 20:30 New Years Reception + Opening Als een Vis op het Droge & Myco Brewery supported with tunes by Artist/DJ Bosatlas.
Als een Vis op het Droge - Arjanne Bode
Arjanne Bode’s basin filled with tattooed by-catch is an investigation into a new European law that should encourage a more sustainable fishing industry. Arjanne Bode recently graduated at Art, Communication and Design (Fontys, Tilburg). Born and raised in Zeeland, a province in the south of the Netherlands with a vivid fishing culture, Arjanne developed an passion for the see and every creature living in it. Go hear to read more about her work.
The installation will be exhibited in the Bio-Art Supplies Shop.
The Myco Brewery - Mediamatic
From beer, to waste, to mycelium to new biodegradable insulation panels.
The Myco Brewery explores the wonderful potential of growing our own insulation panels by using the bi-product of our beer-brewing process. The installation is located in our Clean Lab, a laboratory for experimenting with living things. All steps of the process are visible and you are invited to taste some of our Myco test beers.
Biomimicry Workshop - Laura Stevens
Practice how you can be nature’s apprentice by resolving a design challenge with the help of nature. Many organisms have equipped themselves with spectacular features. The lotus leaf, for instance, has a water repellant surface, whilst spider silk is said to outperform steel. How can you incorporate nature’s own innovations within your designs? Together with Phd Candidate Laura Stevens (US) we’ll discuss different examples from the field and work together to design our own, nature-based solutions. No prior knowledge needed.
