Biomimicry Workshop - Laura Stevens
Practice how you can be nature’s apprentice by resolving a design challenge with the help of nature. 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. Sign up via: email@example.com
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 a passion for the see and every creature living in it.
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.
Don't feel like bubbles? Our team at Mediamatic ETEN creates it's own water kefir! Now is your chance to taste out different fermented batches.
