SMART>SOS is one of the 10 winning projects of the new VERTIGO STARTS initiative supported by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program. Tim Otto Roth develops together with Bio4Comp researches from Dresden, Chemnitz (both Germany), Lund and Kalmar (both Sweden) a sound and video installation revealing the new paradigm of bio computation: a sub-sub-microbiological machinery based on tube like protein polymers, the so called microtubules.
The video summarises phase 1 of the project exploring the technology during research visits at the collaborating institutes. This extended version shows the processing steps of the silicion chip production at Fraunhofer ENAS and its biochemical preparation at TU Dresden.
