Mike Thompson & Susana Cámara Leret
Mike and Susana have an experimental, critical art-design research practice based in Amsterdam: Thought Collider. Their projects often address the relation between science & technology and the functions of our own bodies. For example: what can pee tell about you? And if you could listen to the electro-chemical messages transmitted by your body, what would your rhythm of life sound like?
What does 'healthy' means these days? You can find this claim everywhere. The Medicijnfabriek (medicine factory) by Martijn Engelbregt is a critical art project concerning the health claims and the current trend to live as healthy as possible. The factory is an open work space that gives access to nature's healing processes and enables you to create a medicine focusing on your own specific needs.
Teresa van Dongen
Ocean waves glowing blue in the dark of night, anyone who has ever experienced this knows how magical it looks. The phenomenon is caused by bioluminescent micro-organisms in seawater that emit light when provided with oxygen every time a wave turnes. This principle inspired Teresa to combine her passion for design and biology in a bioluminescent light installation. She will give a short presentation explaining the Ambio.
