-An exploration of generative design through self-repeating algorithms Anders Hoff Inconvergent is a generative algorithms project. The project consists of nearly 10 different algorithms, and is a fusion of computer aided design, mathematics and art. Code is used to mimic and visualize various natural (or unnatural) phenomena. The initial challenge is to define a minimal […]

Moss FM

Fabienne Felder Development of a radio powered by moss, using photo microbial fuel cells. Photo-MFCs essentially use plants as biological solar panels. With the radio “Moss FM” this technology has for the first time powered an object requiring more electricity than a simple LCD. And for the first time (to our knowledge) capacitors and batteries […]

Embedded Art System

Malte Steiner, Wolfgang Spahn Malte Steiner and Wolfgang Spahn are exploring the artistic potential of embedded open source systems. These platforms gives the possibility to combine quite a lot of independent devices to create a more powerful system than most single computer can provide. Open Source and Open Hardware gives the possibility to access all […]

BinAIRy Talk

Jakob Kilian, Niklas Isselburg While digital Data in the form of binary codes was primarily transferred through cables at the turn of the millennium, we are currently confronted with a rise of wireless networks. Air as a transmitting material is taking over. Invisible to our eyes and capable of travelling unimaginable distances due to the […]

Documentary HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakarta

European Premiere Citizen science has long contributed to the health of local communities by making people aware of their environment in the form of oral histories and traditional wisdom. Recently, the effort to democratize science created opportunities for innovation and a model for public participation in science. These movements rippled into many things such as […]

NOISH [ extreme attractors ]

Oscar Martin [ Noish ] Experimental Computer Music audio performance based on infernal repetitions of bass lines and unpredictable bifurcations. A speed sonic trip through chaotic labyrinths with dead end road, strange noise attractors and acid dimensions. An army of raw saw wave synthesizers shooting in your face. “In 1963 Edward Lorenz, working as a […]

XXLAB – WATI: The Domestic Hacking Project

WATI: The Domestic Hacking Project Wati is an imaginary figure whose name was taken from our school textbooks, a once common Indonesian name representing the female identity. To us, Wati is the quintessential Indonesian woman. The name’s popularity has since declined as parents prefer more “modern” names. Time has got the better of Wati, but […]


Stian Remvik “Neighbours” is an animation based on “cellular automata”. More specifically “Wolfram elementary cellular automata”. A cellular automaton is a discrete model studied in computability theory, mathematics, physics, complexity science, theoretical biology and microstructure modeling. Wolfram Elementary Cellular Automata is the simplest class of one-dimensional cellular automaton. For each frame in the animation, each […]
