  • Kate Nichols: Color By Nano
    Artist Kate Nichols longed to paint with the iridescent colors of butterfly wings, but no such pigments existed. So she became the first artist-in-residence at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to synthesize nanoparticles and incorporate them into her artwork. From the laboratory to the studio, see how Kate uses the phenomenon known as "structural color" to transform nanotechnology into creativity.
  • Thijs Biersteker : Symbiosia
    Trees produce annual growth rings within their trunks, hidden beneath their bark. The thickness and shape of the rings can vary, depending the health of the trees. Environmental changes such as fires, droughts, and pollution levels, as well as disease, all affect their appearance. The rings are visual documentation of the lives of trees. An art installation in the Fondation Cartier’s garden displays real-time data from two trees. Digital screens display a representation of their growth rings, as they change due to environmental conditions. The project is a collaboration between the artist Thijs Biersteker and the scientist/botanist Stefano Mancuso and his International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology. Find out more about this data art installation in this article with video from The Urban Letter. https://theurbanletter.com/symbiosia/

  • Gershon Dublin: PHOX Ears
    The Electronic Fox Ears helmet is a listening device that changes its wearer's experience of hearing. A pair of head-mounted, independently articulated parabolic microphones and built-in bone conduction transducers allow the wearer to sharply direct their attention to faraway sound sources. Field recording and ambient sound have long been a part of electronic music; our device extends these practices by drawing on a tradition of wearable technologies and prosthetic art that blur the boundaries of human perception.
  • Gilberto Esparza: Nomadic Plants
    Vegetation and microorganisms live in symbiosis inside the body of the Nomadic Plants robot. Whenever its bacteria require nourishment, the self-sufficient robot will move towards a contaminated river and ‘drink’ water from it. Through a process of microbial fuel cell, the elements contained in the water are decomposed and turned into energy that can feed the brain circuits of the robot.
