Medical Museion is hosting an open biology (or “biohacking”) laboratory and a series of hands-on public events from January-March 2013. The events are part of the European network, Studiolab, that provides a platform for creative projects that bridge divides between science, art and design.
Come explore the biohacking lab and see how it has been cobbled together from discarded furniture, IKEA cupboards and unique ‘hacked’ instruments made by DIY biologists from Copenhagen’s BiologiGaragen. Read about open labs, watch the shadows of scientists play across the walls, and take home some inspiration for your own kitchen experiments – whether this is teasing the DNA out of an onion, or making your own rye bread.
Exhibition/lab opening on 24th January
The exhibition is open Wednesday-Friday and Sunday from 12 – 4 pm from 25th January
