Ladiez and Gentlemen, it’s time to start with a series of interviews I did during amazing Belgrade’s Napravi me / Make Me Festival in June. My first guest will be hardware hackin’ lady and artist Stefanie Wuschitz, the founder of Vienna’s Miss Baltazar’s Laboratory – Women and Trans hacklab.

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…

The event titled ‘Artduino presents you Arduino‘, organized by propulsive framework Culture of Change (Kultura promjene) based in Student Centre, gathered about 20 people of different backgrounds, ages and interests. No different from similar events around the globe we usually peek at online.
