We share our regular world with billions of bacteria and fungi, but are for the most part unaware of how they shape our world -- unless we get sick.  What if you could make a wearable biosensor that showed you in real-time how your own body's ecosystem works in concert with the environment?

Join The Cotard Syndicate for this workshop, where you will learn about their research and make a 3D-printed biosensor that you can wear, track, and read the data collected from your micro- and macro-ecosystems.

Projects: Computational Fashion
People: Erica Kermani, Paul Amitai, Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Stefani Bardin, The Cotard Syndicate, Toby Heys

The human brain contains many regions that are specialized for processing specific decisions and sensory inputs. Many of these are shared with our fellow mammals (and, in some cases, all vertebrates), suggesting that they are evolutionarily ancient specializations. But innovations like writing have only been around for a few thousand years, a time span that's too short relative to human generations to allow for this sort of large evolutionary change. In the absence of specialized capabilities, how has it become possible for such large portions of the population to become literate?

It’s a little short notice, but if anyone fancies taking part in a fascinating parapsychological art experiment this weekend, look no further:


Royal Academy Schools, 1-2 October 2010

Researching a series of unexplained incidents at this historic building, artist Blue Firth uncovered a first-hand account of apparent poltergeist activity in the artists’ studios.


Fashion Designer, Diana Eng (Project Runway), who combines science and technology in her work is partnering with the Treasure Academy to explore Fairytale Fashion concepts.

What do natural magnetic fields look like? This extraordinary footage from NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory (UC Berkeley) gives you a glimpse and reveals their “chaotic, ever-changing geometries.” In terms of wow factor, it’s right up there with the Geometry of Sound.

After Thought is a personality test where I interview people using flashcards and brainwave analysis to produce a custom “video mindprint”. From software-response analysis, I generate a unique 5-minute video containing symbolic imagery such as fireworks shooting into the night sky, rain beating against a window, a sleeping baby and many more. The end result is a looping video on a small LCD screen, housed in a small wooden box. People should watch their video when they drift away from their true selves to perform an emotional realignment.
