ENERGY: Three Art-Science Workshops
*THIS WORKSHOP IS POSTPONED UNTIL LATER IN 2012.*
Bartaku, TpED Worklab #8 – Oslo. http://bartaku.net/tped-worklabs
Are you a researcher, artist, student, designer or entrepreneur enthusiastic about exploring new cross-disciplinary perspectives in the field of alternative energy sources? Then this event is for you. By bringing together people with similar interests, but totally different backgrounds, mutual inspiration is the main ambition. Built on the experience of several internal workshops, Baltan Laboratories and Holst Centre now open up this format to the public, in collaboration with the Renewable Network and High Tech Campus Eindhoven. Sign up fast as seats are limited! We will select only the most enthusiastic candidates from all applications.
Participate in one of these workshops:
#1 On Bioenergy: Biotricity http://renewable.rixc.lv – a workshop on ‘bacteria-electricity’, which uses wastewater as an energy source. Led by Raitis Smits (RIXC, Riga, LT) and Arturs Gruduls (Faculty of Biology, Latvian University).
#2 On Renewable Energy: TpED-Worklab #9 http://bartaku.net/tped-worklabs – A co-creation worklab with research-based experimentations on the relation between light, food, body and electric energy. Led by Bartaku (BE).
#3 On Energy Harvesting: Neighbourhood Satellites Energy Harvests http://energyharvests.org/ examines the practical as well as theoretical possibilities of an alternative, decentralized supply of energy by asking: How can citizens use these surplus energy supplies? What would local micro-power-networks, where free energy can be collected, distributed and exchanged, look like? Led by Myriel Milicevic and Hanspeter Kadel (DE).
More detailed information about each workshop can be found below.
Date: Monday, 4 June 2012
