Residency @ Imsomnia _ The energy bending Lab: First approach

The Energy Bending Lab is a sensory expansion interface embedded into an electronic system using modular synthesizers to create a real time sonification of electrophysiological reactions in electron bacteria (Shewanella Oneidensis) that are later converted in to visualization through cymatics – visible frequency vibrations – to allow for an interspecific prosthesis that could provide the...
Live wires: The electric superorganism under your feet

Live wires: The electric superorganism under your feet

When this bacteria are deprived of oxygen and iron they start growing hairs as the ‘electronic equivalent of a snorkel’ to connect each other as a communal lung network. ‘Shewanella turned out to be a particularly intriguing case. Reducing oxygen is its true métier, but deprive it of oxygen and it will reduce iron instead. In...

Residency @ TodaysArt _ The energy bending system

After two weeks of intensive work between The Hague and Amsterdam, we ran a series of experiments in the wetlab at Waag Society. This helped us to make the first development notes about this system we are currently prototyping - which we called The energy bending system.
