Ken Rinaldo & Amy Youngs: Artist Talk & 3-day workshop

The workshop will consist of looking at inventing and building flow-through systems, that involve animals. insects and machines as digesters.  Plants as digesters and bio-remediators through hyperaccumulation and oxygen C02 breath exchanges.  Worms as digesters and inoculators in eating waste, sterilizing soil and passing fertilizer.  Humans as remediators in both creating and recycling plastic waste and consumer junk.  Discarded goods will be used in the creation of vertical gardens. Peristaltic pumps and Arduino timing circuits will be used with grow lights, LEDs and buttons. Some fungi such as Glomus mosseae and plants can function as hyper accumulators and can absorb heavy metals, solvents and hydrocarbons.

Marta de Menezes: FREE ARTIST TALK & 3-day CRISPR workshop

CRISPR refers to a range of novel gene editing systems which can be programmed to edit DNA at precise locations. It allows the permanent modification of the genes in cells of living organisms. CRISPR enables novel basic research and promises a wide range of possible applications from biomedicine and agriculture to environmental challenges. The previously unknown precision and simplicity of CRISPR and its possibilities has led to a wide diversity of reactions. While some welcome it as a gene editing revolution others urge for a worldwide moratorium, especially when it comes to human germline modifications. Particularly controversial is the CRISPR […]
