And what is inner beauty anyway? Visit The Art of Deception: A collection of transformed pigs hearts that explore how biological interventions and aesthetic manipulation can be used as tools for the ultimate deception: The transformation of inner beauty. </p> <p>By designer Isaac Monté and evolutionary biologist Toby Kiers (VU).</p> <p>Opening hours: Wed - Fri 17:00 - 19:00 / Sat + Sun 15:00 - 19:00<br/> We offer tours for groups upon request.<br/> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/876766955761891/">Facebook</a></p> <h3>The Art of Deception</h3> <p><em>Challenging the contemporary notions of beauty and offer a vision on society's pursuit for perfection.</em></p> <p>Humans use deception to achieve perfection in society, art and science. Reacting to this through art, Monté and Kiers have taken discarded pig hearts and transformed them into elegant vessels for new life. </p> <p>By decellularizing the hearts and re-populating them with various techniques they aesthetically improved the hearts for humans. This procedure marks a new era of synthetic biology - where organs are stripped of their cellular contents, leaving behind a sterile scaffold that can be repopulated with stemcells. While the medical utilisation of this resource is being realised, the artistic and creative value of these ghost organs represents unexplored territory. Can the ghost organs function as blank canvas for designers? And will humans be able to manipulate organs for aesthetic purposes?</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/669274/en/the-art-of-deception-through-windows"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/610/669274-400-267.jpg" height="267" width="400" alt="The Art of Deception through windows" title="The Art of Deception through windows" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - The Art of Deception through windows - Mediamatic.net" href="/669274/en/the-art-of-deception-through-windows">The Art of Deception through windows</a></p></div></div></div><br/> <!--[embed youtube 10XGlOdF4Sc]--><iframe width="407" height="306" class="inline-object wiki-youtube" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/10XGlOdF4Sc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><!--[/embed]--></p> <h3>Day and Nighttime views</h3> <p>18 transformed pig hearts will displayed at Mediamatic's 19th century Sluisdeurenloods.

He creates design objects and installations as a reaction to social, ecological or economical problems. He uses design as a medium to transform forgotten or overlooked problems into possibilities and opportunities. His previous works include <em>Filter Factory</em>, birdhouses made out of cigarette filters and <em>Les Sauvages</em>, a collection of masks made out of fur from roadkill. In 2015 Isaac received the Bio Art and Design Award, which gave him the opportunity to create <em>The Art of Deception</em> in collaboration with Toby Kiers, Professor in Evolutionary Biology at the VU in Amsterdam.</p> <h3>Toby Kiers</h3> <p><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/365624/nl/toby-kiers">Toby Kiers</a> is evolutionary biologist and Professor of Mutualistic Interactions at the VU Amsterdam. Toby's research focuses on how cooperation between species (mutualisms) respond and evolve together within a rapidly changing world, with the ultimate aim of linking this to environmental changes. All around us organisms are engaged in intimate cooperations and trades. From the intestinal bacteria in our guts to the bees that pollinate crops, we actually know very little of how cooperative relationships evolve in nature. Toby Kiers is also on the Mediamatic board of advisers. </p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/669273/en/the-art-of-deception-visitors"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/979/669273-400-267.jpg" height="267" width="400" alt="The Art of Deception visitors" title="The Art of Deception visitors" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - The Art of Deception visitors - Mediamatic.net" href="/669273/en/the-art-of-deception-visitors">The Art of Deception visitors</a></p></div></div></div></p> <h3>Information</h3> <p><em>The Art of Deception</em><br/> 4th October 2016 - 14 February 2017<br/> Daytime opening hours with tickets:<br/> Wed - Fri : 17:00 - 19:00<br/> Sat + Sun: 15:00 - 19:00</p> <p>Entrance fee: 5€ (including the booklet The Art of Deception)</p> <p>In the evenings and nights the hearts can be viewed for free through the windows.

It will be on show as a permanent installation inside of our soon-to-be-opened Bio Art Supply Shop.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/id/669929">The official opening</a> of the installation will take place on Friday the 13th of January, during our New Year's Reception. 17:30 - 20:30.</p> <p>Free entrance</p> <h3>Problematic By-catch</h3> <p>The Dutch fishery industry catches approximately 50.000 tons of bycatch a year. Discards (too young and too small fishes) used to be trown back overboard, but the chances of survival are insecure. If they survive this procedure, they will probably be eaten by hungry seagulls.</p> <p><!--[embed vimeo 169457593]--><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/169457593" width="400" height="225" class="inline-object wiki-vimeo" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe><!--[/embed]--></p> <h3>Encouraging Sustainability by Law</h3> <p>To encourage a more sustainable and selective fishery industry, fishermen are now forced by European law to bring all catch to land. This is easier said than done for Dutch fishery. Important species such as sole and plaice all swim together at the bottom at the sea and fishing with big trawlers takes everything including baby fishes, crabs, starfishes or rayfish. By increasing mesh sizes in the nets, some little ones can leave the net, but that doesn’t apply on every kind of fish.</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/669592/en/als-een-vis-op-het-droge-close-up"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/441/669592-400-268.jpg" height="268" width="400" alt="Als een vis op het droge close up" title="Als een vis op het droge close up" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Als een vis op het droge close up - Mediamatic.net" href="/669592/en/als-een-vis-op-het-droge-close-up">Als een vis op het droge close up</a></p></div></div></div></p> <h3>The Future of the Fishing Industry</h3> <p>What happens with this 50.000 tons bycatch when they come ashore? It is not allowed to sell it for direct human consumption, that would encourage the capture of juvenile fish. The bycatch is currently being processed to fishmeal, which provides food for farmed fish and livestock. Although the new law aims for a more sustainable fishing process with less discards, if the technique doesn't improve, the bycatch will remain.<br/> The consequences will not only be many unnecessarily wasted fish, but also the North Sea will be over-exploited, causing the fishing industry casting their own future.</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/669686/en/als-een-vis-op-het-droge"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/203/669686-400-267.jpg" height="267" width="400" alt="Als een vis op het droge" title="Als een vis op het droge" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Als een vis op het droge - Mediamatic.net" href="/669686/en/als-een-vis-op-het-droge">Als een vis op het droge</a></p></div></div></div></p> <p>Arjanne Bode graduated at Art, Communication and Design (Fontys, Tilburg) with ‘Als een vis op het droge’ in 2016.

Here at Mediamatic we are interested in the cultural and artistic applications of this 'new' bio-material and invite you to start exploring it for yourself. During this introduction course you will learn how to cultivate the Oyster Mushroom at home and by doing so gain a better understanding of the potential of this organism.</p> <p><a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/111534">Tickets</a></p> <h3>Mycelium as a source for bio-based materials</h3> <p>Mycelium is the white fungal network of filaments that you will find underneath our soil. In the woods these strains or ‘mushroom roots’ are responsible for the transfer of nutrients, detoxification and the degradation of dead plants and treas. It is precisely this feature that makes mycelium a powerful agent in the production of new bio-based materials.</p> <p>Current developments have pushed mycelium in the fields of fashion, furniture, architecture and fine-arts, stating that it can be seen as <a href="http://motherboard.vice.com/nl/read/schimmel-het-plastic-van-de-toekomst">‘the plastic of the future’</a>. Go <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZQGeQp4v-4">here</a> to read more about mycelium as an alternative for leather, and a <a href="https://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2016/04/18/schimmeljurk-is-alleen-om-naar-te-kijken-1610560-a362446">dress made from fungi</a>.</p> <h3>Discuss, learn and grow</h3> <p>In this workshop you will meet up with mushroom expert Wouter Hassing to (critically) discuss the mycelium’s potential and gain a better understanding of how to start cultivating yourself. Over the course of 2 hours you will be introduced to different growth media, substrates, cultivation methods and fungal strains. After which you will produce your own bag of straw substrate and learn how to extract spawn from full grown mushroom at home.</p> <h3>Bio Clean Lab</h3> <p>Both cultivation and the introduction will take place in the Bio Clean Lab; our laboratory which is fully equipped for working with micro-organisms. This Clean Lab is not only available for individual artists and artist in residency programs but it is also the homebase for our Myco Insulation Brewery. A permanent exhibition and production line where we produce beer and grow mycelium insulation panels on the spent grains.</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/668959/nl/fungi-expert-extraordinaire"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/035/668959-400-267.jpg" height="267" width="400" alt="Fungi expert extraordinaire" title="Fungi expert extraordinaire" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Fungi expert extraordinaire - Mediamatic.net" href="/668959/nl/fungi-expert-extraordinaire">Fungi expert extraordinaire</a></p> <span class="caption-sep">-</span> <p class="caption-body">Wouter Hassing has his own mushroom company in the North of Amsterdam.</p></div></div></div></p> <h3>About Wouter</h3> <p>Wouter Hassing can be seen as an authority in the field of local mushroom cultivation.

In fact, people have been eating mycelium for ages. Tempeh is an ancient food that has its origins in Indonesia, where it is traditionally made from soy beans. During a controlled fermentation process the mycelium binds the beans together, turning regular soy beans into tempeh. Tempeh offers a very nutritious and delicious substitute for meat, if you know how to prepare it right.</p> <p><a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116525">Tickets</a> / <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/751793524976039/">Facebook</a></p> <h3>Mycelium as a delicious meat substitute</h3> <p>It is said that the mushroom, and especially mycelium have the potential to replace all kinds of harmful materials such as plastics and batteries. At Mediamatic, we are interested in the cultural, artistic and culinary applications of mycelium. Another way in which mycelium could benefit the environment is by replacing meat in people’s diets, as meat production causes lots of pollution and is bad for the climate because of high carbon dioxide emissions. But regardless of its environmental and health benefits, the fact that tempeh can be very tasty is already a very good reason to include it in your menu!</p> <h3>Learn and grow</h3> <p>During this workshop you will learn all about the symbiosis between the mushroom and legume and the underlying microbiological process. Under the guidance of Sasker Scheerder you will prepare your own beans. You will gain a better understanding of preparing tempeh yourself using any legume you like. Two days after the workshop, the beans will have turned into tempeh and you can collect your self-made tempeh at Mediamatic!</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/669877/nl/full-grown-tempeh"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/274/669877-400-305.jpg" height="305" width="400" alt="Full grown tempeh" title="Full grown tempeh" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Full grown tempeh - Mediamatic.net" href="/669877/nl/full-grown-tempeh">Full grown tempeh</a></p> <span class="caption-sep">-</span> <p class="caption-body">Made with black beans.</p></div></div></div></p> <h3>About Sasker Scheerder</h3> <p>Sasker Scheerder is the head of Manenwolf’s rokerij and foodlab. He uses all kinds of natural processes for making foods, such as smoking, drying, salting, fermenting, infuse, brooding and pickle. Often, these are ancient techniques for food preparation but Sasker uses them to create exciting new foods, trying to defy bad taste and loveless foods. During his tempeh workshop, he makes tempeh out of a wide variety of organic beans.</p> <h3>Bio Clean Lab</h3> <p>Both the introduction and the preparation of the tempeh will take place in the Bio Clean Lab; our laboratory which is fully equipped for working with micro-organisms. The Clean Lab is not only available for individual artists and artist in residency programs but is also the homebase for our own Myco Insulation Brewery, a permanent exhibition and production line where we produce beer and grow mycelium insulation panels on the spent grains of the brewing process.</p> <h3>Info</h3> <p>Workshop: Tempeh <br/> Friday 24 Febuary, 14:45 - 17:00<br/> Mediamatic Biotoop, Dijksgracht 6, Amsterdam<br/> <a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116525">Tickets: Regular €40,- / Artist or Student €28,- (excl.

Which different techniques exist to extract smells and what are their pro’s and con’s? This edition of Odorama will be all about different techniques of distilling. We invited theoretical physicist Abel Jansma, olfactory artist Klara Ravat, the founders of RUIK and Peter Roessingh. This evening also marks the preview of our very own Aroma Lab which is made by Klara Ravat.</p> <p><a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116823">Tickets</a> / <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/1260469724041375/">Facebook</a></p> <p>During this Odorama we will explore practices, techniques and tools for the olfactory artist. You are invited for an exclusive preview of the newly build Aroma Lab where you will find equipment and gadgets ready to create new scent designs.</p> <h3>Klara Ravat</h3> <p>Klara will spent a year in Amsterdam as artist-in-residence invited by VU university, Waag Society and Mediamatic. Klara creates media and odor artworks, installations and experimental films. By opposing the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, Ravat absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. For the past years she has been developing works that relate to the sense of smell as a research on how we perceive through this sense. At the Aroma Lab she will be hosting a series of scented workshops, talks and other related fragranced activities. </p> <h3>dr. Peter Roessingh</h3> <p>What is a gas chromatography? Dr. Peter Roessingh from the University of Amsterdam will explain us everything about the principle of gas chromatography, an analytical chemical method for separating chemical substances. This method can be used in analysing scents and specify their moleculair composition. Roessingh will introduce us to the principles and talk about how the gas chromatography is used in analysing biological components. </p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/670580/nl/regina-distributing-aroma-at-odorama"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/660/670580-400-267.jpg" height="267" width="400" alt="Regina distributing aroma at Odorama" title="Regina distributing aroma at Odorama" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Regina distributing aroma at Odorama - Mediamatic.net" href="/670580/nl/regina-distributing-aroma-at-odorama">Regina distributing aroma at Odorama</a></p> <span class="caption-sep">-</span> <p class="caption-body">Regina as aroma jockey during Odorama: Art + Distillation</p></div></div></div></p> <h3>Abel Jansma</h3> <p>Abel has been focusing on performing vacuum distillation for Mediamatic, meaning distillation under low pressures to conserve a richer spectrum of aromas. For traditional distillation the boiling points of elements can be too high and therefore destroying the complex, often fragile molecules that constitute flavors and odors in the process. With Vacuum Distilling this could be prevented and offer an interesting tool for creating a complex aroma. </p> <h3>RUIK</h3> <p>Boye and Noëlle are RUIK and create their own perfumes without chemicals on an organic basis. For their first perfume VERSCHIL they made a design based on their childhood memory of the smell of orange peels. Nowadays 20.000.00 ton of orange peels are thrown away. RUIK uses organic orange peels that would have gone to waste otherwise as the basis for their perfume. Furthermore, they also turn the peels into paper using it for the packaging.</p> <p><strong>Info</strong><br/> Odorama: The Aroma Lab Edition<br/> Thursday 9 March<br/> Program starts at 20:00<br/> Mediamatic Biotoop, Dijksgracht 6, Amsterdam<br/> <a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116823">Tickets: €7,50 presale, €5 for students</a></p> - 4.91349148360598 52.3766641023636 The Aroma Lab Edition 2017-03-09 20:00:00 ARTEFACT event 1 http://www.mediamatic.net/id/670546 2017-02-20T10:22:39+01:00 Secretopia: From sci-fi to reality Fantastic Voyage movie discussion <p>Science fiction often invents devices before science does. This also goes for the movie Fantastic Voyage [1966] where a shrunken ship with crew enters a human body and moves around through the bloodstream, to surgically remove a blood clot. During this night we will zoom in on how Fantastic Voyage has been an inspiration for scientists to create new techniques for curing diseases.</p> <p>The event is free of charge.</p> <p>The special effects may have dated, as have the Cold War themes, but the almost real time adventure still has some tension to offer. The movie has a colourful psychedelic set design full of blobby globs and jellyfish like molecules. It is an absolute cult classic.</p> <p>Secretopia is Mediamatic's new programme series that focusses on secretions, the stuff that comes out of your body. </p> <p>Trailer:</p> <p><!--[embed youtube VcMwNSiQ8Jk]--><iframe width="407" height="306" class="inline-object wiki-youtube" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VcMwNSiQ8Jk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><!--[/embed]--></p> <p>Info:<br/> Secretopia Fantastic Voyage<br/> Language: English / Subtitles: None<br/> Tuesday 14 March<br/> Start 19:00 in the Haeckelroom <br/> Mediamatic Biotoop, Dijksgracht 6, Amsterdam<br/> Free entrance</p> - 4.91349148360598 52.3766641023636 2017-03-14 19:00:00 ARTEFACT event 1 http://www.mediamatic.net/id/670057 2017-02-20T16:04:58+01:00 Meet Zeger Reyers Discuss your work, ideas and obstacles with the artist <p>A new breed of artists is on the rise. They work with living matter, nature and have a strong emphasis in biology and life sciences. In this emerging field of Bio-Art and Design there’s need for extensive collaboration. Not only between the different disciplines involved, but also between generations. That's why we invited renowned installation artist Zeger Reyers to become a Mediamatic Fellow. This means that he will be a regular attendee of the Mediamatic Biotoop, with scheduled consults for you to attent to. Exchange your ideas and sign up for a one on one with Zeger Reyers.</p> <h3>For Whom?</h3> <p>Are you stuck with your project? Close to finishing your finals at art academy? Do you need advice on how to work with organic matter? Or are you interested to learn what obstacles you encounter while producing living installations? The conversations with Zeger are meant for anyone who has a special interest in art and biology. But don't be surprised to end up in a conversation about distilling and old kopper kettles, because Zeger is also a passionate fermentor of liqueurs.</p> <h3>Exchange your ideas</h3> <p>During the consults you will sit down with Zeger Reyers to discuss you work, ideas and challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas. The conversations will take place in the Aquaponics Farm at the Biotoop. A green location for some thorough thought exchange.</p> <p><div style="position: relative;" class="ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.mediamatic.net/670146/nl/consult-with-zeger-reyers"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/sjnh/image/433/670146-400-235.jpg" height="235" width="400" alt="Consult with Zeger Reyers" title="Consult with Zeger Reyers" playable="1"/> </a><div class="caption clearfix"><div class="caption-wrap"><p class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - Consult with Zeger Reyers - Mediamatic.net" href="/670146/nl/consult-with-zeger-reyers">Consult with Zeger Reyers</a></p></div></div></div></p> <h3>Zeger Reyers</h3> <p>Zeger Reyers is a Dutch installation artist with a strong fascination for biological processes like eating and growing, budding, blossoming and dying. Using all sorts of living materials Zeger shows typical processes in different biotopes. He makes objects that are shaped by living materials, such as furniture and machines that are overgrown by mushrooms or chairs he sunk in the Oosterschelde that have been covered by mussels. And he is renowned for his rotating kitchen. Reyer's artworks provoke a new way of seeing these natural processes, by juxtaposing the human controllable versus natures uncontrollable.</p> <h3>Sign up</h3> <p>The consults of an hour will take place monthly between 13:00 - 16:00 on the following dates:</p> <p>19 January<br/> 16 February<br/> 15 March</p> <p>You can sign up for the monthly meetings with Zeger by sending your request to: floor.matla@mediamatic.net</p> - 4.91349148360598 52.3766641023636 Meet Zeger Reyers d d 2017-03-15 13:00:00 ARTEFACT event 1 http://www.mediamatic.net/id/670538 2017-02-07T15:09:26+01:00 Regeneration - Biotalk Presentations and demo's on the topic of eco-revitalization <p>Regeneration – Biotalk is a collaboration between Transnatural and Mediamatic and consists of two nights full of exciting talks and projects revolving around the topic of restoring and revitalizing our ecology. We will explore the topic of an eco-revival by means of examples from art, design, science and other fields. Presentations by: bio-artist Ivan Henriques, professor Biogeochemistry (Utrecht University) Caroline Slomp and architectural engineering Eric Geboers.

On the long term, this phenomenon, together with the continuous growth of the earth’s population, will generate a problematic situation. The Salt Project tries to offer a possible solution to this problem by means of architecture built from seawater. Architect/ designer Eric Geboers will discuss The Salt Project’s research and progress so far.</p> <p>Ivan Henriques - <em>Caravel</em><br/> Microbial Fuel Cells, or MFC’s, are devices that use bacteria in wastewater as the catalyst to oxidise organic matter and generate electricity. Ivan Henriques developed Caravel, a floating mobile robotic structure which harvests and stores energy from these MFC’s. The harvested energy is then applied to move the robotic structure that is able to clean the polluted environment with the help of water-purifying plants that are integrated in the structure.</p> <p>Caroline Slomp - <em>Recovering the sea’s dead zones</em><br/> Due to a lack of oxygen in certain areas, the sea has many so-called ‘dead zones’. Professor of Biogeochemistry (at Utrecht University) Caroline Slomp investigates how these dead zones come into being, and whether burying phosphate in the seabed can help to solve this problem. Professor Slomp will tell more about her field research and her quest for a healthy sea.</p> <h3>Demo's</h3> <p>Robyn Tayler Payne - Mist Capturing Surface <br/> The Salt Project - Eric Geboers.</p> <h3>Transnatural - Regeneration</h3> <p>This program is part of the <a href="http://transnatural.org/events/regeneration/">Regeneration exhibition by Transnatural</a>.

It is one of the best ways to produce food in the city, because it hardly takes up any space. The fish excrement feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. In this way, not a drop is wasted. In this workshop you will learn how to build a miniponics system, a miniature, home-edition of the bigger Aquaponics towers.</p> <p><a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/111074">Tickets</a> / <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/1019570491488158/">Facebook</a></p> <h3>Aquaponics?</h3> <p>The 'Aquaponic Gardening Community' describes Aquaponics as &quot;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.&quot; The Mediamatic Aquaponics team is currently building an urban oasis based on this ecofriendly system.</p> <p>Check this video about Aquaponics by WhatTheFood <br/> <!--[embed youtube UXEnr6Vhgco]--><iframe width="407" height="306" class="inline-object wiki-youtube" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UXEnr6Vhgco" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><!--[/embed]--></p> <h3>Program</h3> <p>We start the day with a tour through Biotoop Dijksgracht and the Aquaponics site. During the tour you'll get a thorough introduction to Aquaponics and a crash course in biology. After that, with our trainers' help, we will start to build the Aquaponics farm together. By the end of the day you will know exactly how to build your own system at home, and know everything about the ecosystem.

We will than walk take a short walk around Mediamatic’s neighbourghood, where Klara will guide us through specific urban aroma locations. In the meantime there is room to discuss and comment on our findings. The idea is to collect scented object that will later be distilled in Mediamatic’s Bio Clean Lab. Together we will distill a scented memory of Amsterdam which you will take home in the end.</p> <h3>For whom</h3> <p>This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in exploring Amsterdam in a different way. No prior knowledge required, however, participants are asked to bring a smelly object or substance that reminds them of Amsterdam.</p> <h3>About Klara</h3> <p>Klara Ravat creates media and odour artworks, installations and experimental films. By opposing the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, Ravat absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. Klara will be part of an Artist in Residency program at Mediamatic, where she will work on the creation of a new performance, which be performed at Odorama: Art + Distillation. She will also speak about her work, together with Dutch installation artist Zeger Reyers.</p> <h3>Information</h3> <p>The Scent of Amsterdam<br/> Distilling Odors of an Urban Landschap with Klara Ravat<br/> Saturday 25 March, 10:30 - 16:30<br/> Ticket: €38,50,- Students* / €55 Regular<br/> *Please bring proof of your VAT or a student card.</p> <p>Mediamatic Biotoop, Dijkpark 6, Amsterdam</p> - 4.91349148360598 52.3766641023636 2017-03-25 10:30:00 ARTEFACT event 1 http://www.mediamatic.net/id/670090 2016-12-16T14:41:58+01:00 Workshop: Grow your own Fungi Basic mushroom and biomaterials introduction <p>It is said that the mushroom, and especially Mycelium has the potential to replace all sorts of (harmful) materials like plastics and batteries. Here at Mediamatic we are interested in the cultural and artistic applications of this 'new' bio-material and invite you to start exploring it for yourself. During this introduction course you will learn how to cultivate the Oyster Mushroom at home and by doing so gain a better understanding of the potential of this organism.</p> <h3>Mycelium as a source for bio-based materials</h3> <p>Mycelium is the white fungal network of filaments that you will find underneath our soil. In the woods these strains or ‘mushroom roots’ are responsible for the transfer of nutrients, detoxification and the degradation of dead plants and treas. It is precisely this feature that makes mycelium a powerful agent in the production of new bio-based materials.</p> <p>Current developments have pushed mycelium in the fields of fashion, furniture, architecture and fine-arts, stating that it can be seen as <a href="http://motherboard.vice.com/nl/read/schimmel-het-plastic-van-de-toekomst">‘the plastic of the future’</a>.

Over the course of 2 hours you will be introduced to different growth media, substrates, cultivation methods and fungal strains. After which you will produce your own bag of straw substrate and learn how to extract spawn from full grown mushroom at home.</p> <h3>Bio Clean Lab</h3> <p>Both cultivation and the introduction will take place in the Bio Clean Lab; our laboratory which is fully equipped for working with micro-organisms. This Clean Lab is not only available for individual artists and artist in residency programs but it is also the homebase for our Myco Insulation Brewery.

Tempeh offers a very nutritious and delicious substitute for meat, if you know how to prepare it right.</p> <p><a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116544">Tickets</a> / <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/1733292110048553/">Facebook</a></p> <h3>Mycelium as a delicious meat substitute</h3> <p>It is said that the mushroom, and especially mycelium have the potential to replace all kinds of harmful materials such as plastics and batteries. At Mediamatic, we are interested in the cultural, artistic and culinary applications of mycelium. Another way in which mycelium could benefit the environment is by replacing meat in people’s diets, as meat production causes lots of pollution and is bad for the climate because of high carbon dioxide emissions. But regardless of its environmental and health benefits, the fact that tempeh can be very tasty is already a very good reason to include it in your menu!</p> <h3>Learn and grow</h3> <p>During this workshop you will learn all about the symbiosis between the mushroom and legume and the underlying microbiological process. Under the guidance of Sasker Scheerder you will prepare your own beans. You will gain a better understanding of preparing tempeh yourself using any legume you like. Two days after the workshop, the beans will have turned into tempeh and you can collect your self-made tempeh at Mediamatic!</p> <h3>About Sasker Scheerder</h3> <p>Sasker Scheerder is the head of Manenwolf’s rokerij and foodlab. He uses all kinds of natural processes for making foods, such as smoking, drying, salting, fermenting, infuse, brooding and pickle. Often, these are ancient techniques for food preparation but Sasker uses them to create exciting new foods, trying to defy bad taste and loveless foods. During his tempeh workshop, he makes tempeh out of a wide variety of organic beans.</p> <h3>Bio Clean Lab</h3> <p>Both the introduction and the preparation of the tempeh will take place in the Bio Clean Lab; our laboratory which is fully equipped for working with micro-organisms. The Clean Lab is not only available for individual artists and artist in residency programs but is also the homebase for our own Myco Insulation Brewery, a permanent exhibition and production line where we produce beer and grow mycelium insulation panels on the spent grains of the brewing process.</p> <h3>Info</h3> <p>Workshop: Tempeh <br/> Friday 26 May, 14:45 - 17:00<br/> Mediamatic Biotoop, Dijksgracht 6, Amsterdam<br/> <a href="https://mediamatic.stager.nl/web/tickets/116544">Tickets: Regular €40,- / Student €28,- (excl.
