New workshops coming up

Golden GM Silk, Smelly Scent-Scapes and Fungal Design

Imagine huge blankets of genetically modified silks that can absorb reactor meltdown by-products at nuclear accident sites. Or how about the creation of a "l'odeur de Amsterdam" made from distilled samples found in our urban environment. Or perhaps you are more interested in the development of an integrated food and design system where you use fish and plants, or fungi?
