About building new life forms, like spider sheep.
Actually, you should go and see every BBC Horizon documentary.
It’s that exciting time of the year again. Incubate is coming up. This highly respected Dutch festival in our hometown Tilburg starts on Monday and lasts for the whole week. We are so damn siked that our Incu-homies Joost, Frank, Vincent and their skilled team came up with this killer line up. Makes me feel good and proud to be one of the head sponsors of this event.
Ok, what’s there to see and do? Well, too many things to mention actually. The leading theme for this year is ‘We Are Incubate”. So expect a lot of projects, pieces, lectures, music, dance that will be made/done ‘together’ by artists, musicians, the public, you, me. You get the deal.
To name a few things where you definitely will be seeing this old chap hanging around:
New Jacks, The Fall, Deadelus, Omar Souleyman, Open Source Expo, Play me I’m Yours, Han Bennink, Nosaj Thing, Battles, Glen Hansard, Steve Ingorant, Klaus Beyer, Bill “KLF” Drummond, Ben UFO, Theo Parrish, Man From the South, Motor City Drum Ensemble, EMA, Jackmaster, Zoviet*France… And the list goes on and on. This is only problaby 3% of the total line up so please go and check it out for yourself right here.
See you all there mates!
It could all be true in the nearby future.
Chinese researchers found a way to create a living data storage system in the DNA of bacteria:
“A single gram of E. coli cells could hold up to 900,000 gigabytes (or 900 terabytes) of data, meaning these bacteria have almost 500 times the storage capacity of a top of the line commercial hard drive”
Told it once and I’m telling it again: everything is programmed. Ninininininini.
“Mimosa is an interactive artwork displaying behavior that mimics responsive plant systems.The piece was inspired by the Mimosa family of plants, which change kinetically to suit their environmental conditions. The studio has used the slim form of individual OLEDs to create delicate light petals, forming flowers, which open and close in response to visitors.”
