After the Solder Synth Sense Sore Sore Sip workshop, Marc, Togar and I were in a workshopology discussion about creating an intense workshop sessions to get the participants get to know about DIY electronics. We agreed that the workshops on making simple electronic circuit such as Micronoise, Synth Sense, Atari Punk Console, are quite nice for the participants to have general idea on how electronic circuit works. However, we thought this workshop modules are not enough to really kick themselves in to creating or experimenting with electronics. Continue reading
In 2010, Julian Abraham, Agus Tri Budiarto and Nur Akbar Arofatullah initiated a project of making safe and generic fermentation method to make wine made from tropical fruits. The project name was Intelligent Bacteria: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (IB:SC). The project was a collaboration between art and science in the medium of bio-technology where the purpose of the project was to dig in the local potentials of tropical fruits in Indonesia, create a safe and generic fermentation method and distribute it to the society. The initiative itself was an artist independent that was supported with a collaboration with Irfan Dwidya Prijambada and Donny Widianto from Microbiology Department of Agriculture Faculty Universitas Gadjah Mada Yogyakarta. During 2010-2011, IB:SC was registered under the collective called HONF which makes the people who actually work on the project didn’t receive personal credits of what they have done when IB:SC won the transmediale awards 2011.
In September 2011, Julian Abraham, Agus Tri Budiarto, Nur Akbar Arofatullah, and I left HONF. Julian started a project under the name of Kapitan Biopunk, while Agus Tri Budiarto, Nur Akbar Arofatullah and I build lifepatch.org together with Budi Prakosa, Adhari Donora, Agung Firmanto and continue the collaboration with Microbiology Departement UGM. To make it clear, in this post I will write the project background and research that I wrote for the application and final concept for transmediale 2011 in Berlin Germany. In this project, I took part in finalizing the conceptual works and research conclusion of the project. Besides that, I’m also a personal wine tester of this project :P. Bellow is the writing that I submitted for transmediale 2011:

The session is involving both sides on a discussion about developing the DIY microscope from a webcam that has been developed by Hackteria, a platform on open-source biological art, DIY biology and generic lab equipment. Hackteria have given a workshop about DIY webcam microscope in UGM before that was given by Marc Dusseiller (dusjagr). We have built a prototype of the webcam microscope, we asked the students to make tests on this prototype to know its’ limits to used as a tools in analyzing microorganism.
