Oh, I’m back to blogging, my dear friendz! Just had some cluttered weekz, and absolutely great echo after visiting Belgrade’s Napravi Me! / Make Me Festival in the middle of June. The input I’ve got there was so strong, so I needed the other way out to articulate thingz.
Short documentary Karakuri by Matthew Allard had been already widespread all around the web. It’s a movie I wanted to publish at the beginning of June, but then I had mini break… So, it’s never too late for a good dox here! Karakuri is a traditional Japanese puppet craft, actually an ancient variant of robotics.
This is the second part of the interview with Marc Dusseiller. Read the first part here: On DIYbio and nanotechnology

In April I went to Ljubljana for a one-day workshop ‘Du du kuglica sajica mavrica‘ led by Boštjan Leskovšek, Bengt Sjölén, and Marc Dusseiler from Hackteria.org. It was a continuation of 10 days NanoŠmano series of workshops and events (initiated by Stefan Doepner/f18institut and Marc Dusseiller/hackteria) dedicated to DIYbio and nanotechnology, or as more precisely Stefan Doepner pointed out: ‘The project started new explorations into the world of matter on the nanoscale by investigating its physical and aesthetic potentials. As an collaborative and open research based workshop by artists, hackers and scientists, we want to elicit methods to enable the creative use of nano materials in critical and playful artistic process.’
The authors of the concept are: STEFAN DOEPNER – MARC DUSSEILLER – BOSTJAN LESKOVSEK – BENGT SJOELEN – ERIK REIMHULT
You know, I’m very often on workshops: DIY, software or hardware based stuff, interactivity, wearables; but after Hackteria’s workshop I really had a feeling that I pushed my understanding on DIY cultures strongly, strongly forward. Priceless…

Naturally, as a follow-up to a series of blog posts thematizing innovation and prototyping announced last week, this edition of Pocket cinema presents definitely the most important scientist and inventor of all times – Nikola Tesla.
