Create and eat your own e-Tapas, made from edible solar cells, with a 0.6 volt buzz that makes your tongue tingle. Explore innovative applications of Aronia (berries) and flax, plants that have been around for centuries, in a surprising table landscape.
During STRP Festival Baltan presents E-Tapas: an open laboratory and tasting session at the intersection of food and textiles, photosynthesis and biomimicry. The Belgian artist Bartaku (Bart Vandeput) and French designer Carole Collet (Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design) show the most strange, juicy, tasty ideas found in their study on the relationship between energy and food. They combine biology and nanotechnology and explore a future where designers become alchemists. Prior to the tasting students, artists and scientists explore these techniques during a three day workshop. Eindhoven cook Andre Amaro (Ketelhuis) will prepare a special recipe based on flax. The result is a true tasting, which activates all senses. Come and enjoy the findings…
Three day workshop Edible Alchemy led by Bartaku & Carole Collet
Ketelhuis, March 7,8,9, 11:00 – 18:00
Admission fee: 15 Euros including lunch & drinks
Submit before March 1, via carmin[AT]baltanlaboratories[DOT]org
In the first day participants will be developing resilient strategies for design, including concept ‘product’ development. In the second day students will apply resilience thinking to a plant system, exploring how far one can push the adaptation for different raw materials. In this case the making of controllable measurable energy using fruit berries (Aronia Melanocarpa). The workshop ends with a staging moment, where fellow friends, relatives, teachers and students are invited for testing and tasting in a specifically designed/staged setting, at STRP Festival.

Tasting e-Tapas is part of the EU project Techno Ecologies and is organized in collaboration with Holst Centre and Ketelhuis.
STRP Festival: Presentation by Holst Centre and Baltan Laboratories
Holst Centre and Baltan Laboratories are working together as part of a research collaboration that connects artists with the latest technology research in the field of wireless sensors and flexible electronics. This collaboration is based on a desire to investigate the ways and potential of collaboration between industrial and art labs in order to support artistic and scientific research. In partnership with STRP Festival, we are also looking at ways to stimulate critical reflection on, and new ways of presentation of, the knowledge and work created through this process.
On November 26th, Koen Snoeckx (communication manager, Holst Centre) and Angela Plohman (director, Baltan Laboratories) will discuss the framework of this collaboration at the STRP Festival. We will also present some results from the first artistic project in the framework of this collaboration by artist Sonia Cillari, which is an investigation into heart rhythm coherency. Sonia and hardware developer Stock have been researching the idea that emotions we experience directly affect our heart rhythm pattern and this, in turn, tells us much about what we are feeling. As part of their research they have been working with ECG necklaces developed at Holst Centre. This is a collaboration with Optofonica Laboratory for Immersive ArtScience in Amsterdam.
