Please join us on 27 July 2015, 6:30 pm-10:00pm, for the opening of Biomodd London at Create Space London (Chesterfield House) . We are delighted to be exhibiting a series of installations from a 3-day course on integrating plants, technology, and people in order to challenge presumed notions of opposition between nature and technology. These installations were co-created by twelve workshop participants from a variety of fields--design, architecture, permaculture, computational arts, visual arts, and political studies, among others! And yes, there will be refreshments. :)

In Biomodd, nature and technology are fused into hybrid art installations in different cultures throughout the world. Computer networks, built from upcycled computer components, are provided with internal living ecosystems. In a symbiotic exchange, plants and algae live alongside electronics and use the waste heat to thrive. Biomodd installations have been co-created by curious minds in communities all over the planet including the Philippines, Slovenia, New Zealand, Belgium, the Netherlands, New York, Germany, and Kosovo.
