saad totally not photoshopeed

Dates: Jun 1 – Jun 6

Project: Mud-Microbial fuel cell, and midichlorians.
Also perhaps a caffeine making machine and an attempt at Nidhi Mittal’s bio-plastic

Bio:
Saad is a professional geek with a passion for coffee, technology, and the OpenSource way of doing things. For a living he conceptualizes tech solutions for Tusitala, the digital publishing arm of Potato Productions. Tusitala means “story-teller”.  Tusitala is on the look out for Asian stories that adopt the interactivity of the digital medium to go beyond the page, without trying to replace it. “trans-media storytelling” as the marketese would have it. Saad also volunteers with several non-profits and strongly believes that social enterprises should be the key users of and contributors to OpenSource tech. Enough of that boring day-job stuff.

Saad is a self-confessed maker of sometimes brilliant but mostly useless things and coffee geek. There, that’s better.

Ask me about the network of innovators that I’m now (extremely grateful to be) a part of: The Global Innovation Gathering

#weAreWhatWeCreateTogether.

Dates: 28/6 – 7/7

Bio: I’m a new media artist and creative coder from Barcelona. I focus my practice in code, electronics and non-digital objects for creating interactive projects often framed as experimental games, which aim to go beyond the game itself. From educational to sociological approaches, my interest lies in the de-hierarchization of traditional art relations. With my works, I have participated in different festivals such Ars Electronica, Japan Media Arts Festival, FILE Festival or Sónar, among others, and I have also done residences in TAG Montreal, an EMARE Residency at QUT (Brisbane) and Platohedro (Medellin).

Project: I’ll be working on a physical object made with nature elements for playful interaction.
