Residency @ TodaysArt _ Circadia,Cascade and the PicoPSU

We continue our process by designing the following modules for our system. The design is focused on generating an oscillator with variable vco sources to control the type of tones. This arrangement was made with 8 capacitor connected to a main oscillator

Residency @ TodaysArt _ Dutch DIY bio group

After a warm welcome from all the great people at Todays Art we headed off to Amsterdam for the DIY Bio community meet up at Waag Society: institute for art, science and technology. Once there, Pieter van Boheemen introduced us to all the facilities and amazing projects taking place in this open wet laboratory. Since...
Cultivation of an Obligate Fe(II)-Oxidizing Lithoautotrophic Bacterium Using Electrodes

Cultivation of an Obligate Fe(II)-Oxidizing Lithoautotrophic Bacterium Using Electrodes

Neutrophilic obligate Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria (FeOB) are prevalent throughout the world in both marine and fresh- water environments, and these microbes play a direct role in the global iron cycle (1).
Patch-clamp amplifiers on a chip

Patch-clamp amplifiers on a chip

The patch-clamp amplifier is a ubiquitous tool for characterizing ion-channel activity. For the screening of pharmaceutical compounds or the characterization of expressed channels, high-throughput patch-clamp systems are being developed, where recordings are made from cells in each well of a 96 or 384-well plate. In these systems the recording is made not with a glass...

Meet the electric life forms that live on pure energy

Unlike any other life on Earth, these extraordinary bacteria use energy in its purest form – they eat and breathe electrons – and they are everywhere. Via New Scientist
Residency @ Cimatics _ The Bio-Oscillator V.0.1

Residency @ Cimatics _ The Bio-Oscillator V.0.1

Finally we presented the version 0.1 of our bio-oscillator, which is only the beginning of a series of prototypes that we will develop to discuss the issue of sound ubiquity and the use of sensory capabilities of living matter, to have a more broader approach on the idea on how our perception is formed from...

Residency @ Cimatics _ Circadian biology to Analog sound synthesis

Since an oscillator is the simplest clock generation source creating a single output frequency from a single component (1) at the core of all circadian clocks is at least one internal autonomous circadian oscillator .

Residency @ Cimatics _ Setting Up

The Interspecifics project officially begins with the ECAS residency and its first host Cimatics in the beautiful Brussels. Most of our activities take place within the Forest area with Duden Park as the bridge we have to cross daily on our way from the laboratory to the department. Bains Connective is the space for our temporary...
