Dear fellow Field_Notarians and Soil-Geeks,
Let’s continue our discussion on our planned activities for Field_Notes in Kilpisjärvi here on this forum. We’ll have many more international virutal collaborators to help us, advise us, give feedback and keep the discussion available openly long-term for the larger community within the Global Hackteria Network | Open Source Biological Art.
Who am I… long story short.
i have been freely researching and educating at the interface of art, science and DIY/hacking methods over the last 10 years. enjoying it a lot to build DIY instruments, both for making synthesizers, aswell as for enabling people to make their own scientific equipment. These DIY science instruments can be performative, ornamental, robust and useful, or purely conceptual as metaphoric objects for reflection.
Having been trained originally as a scientist in the field of nano-bio-technology, biosensors and material science, i have moved further into highly transdisciplinary practice and worked very globally out from Switzerland into Nepal, India, Indonesia and many other places mostly in Asia and Europe. Thus has the network around hackteria grown into a interesting collaborative community of practice sharing a similar enthusiasm on sharing, prototyping and documenting using our webplatforms on Hackteria.org (blog, wiki, forum). See more info on me here.
For this year’s edition of Field_notes, I am very happy to continue our current collaborative network project on Open Soil Research, called HUMUS.Sapiens, which we initiated earlier in collaboration with Mikrobiomik.org and Gasthaus: Fermentation and Bacteria this year, and had events in Switzerland, Germany and Indonesia.
Please continue on this topic thread to introduce yourself in more detail and get to know each other virtually already! See you all in Kilpisjärvi!
