Festival of Ideas for the New City

by Melissa

Back in New York City to present at the Festival of Ideas for the New City organised by the New Museum.

The city was taken over by hundreds of initiatives that stimulated the creative community to imagine its future and explore ideas that will shape it. We presented as part of the ExpoTENtial project, where we are currently part of Mobicode, a research lab on mobility and the city.

The festival also showcased the first project to come out of one of ExpoTENtial ten labs: Hug Worms, an hommage to the place worms can play in waste management.


01SJ Biennale

by Mouna

I’m participating in the 2010 01SJ Biennale as part of  Eyebeam roadshow. Along with Jenny Broutin & Carmen Trudell from Fluxxlab, we’ll be offering workshops to teach people how to build their own Personal Power Plants.

The Personal PowerPlant is a portable device that harnesses electricity through a hand crank generator (with solar cell option) into a rechargeable battery for use in powering portable electronic devices through a USB terminal. The workshop introduced circuit basics and sustainable energy harvesting. Workshop participants assembled and took home their very own Personal PowerPlant. The first version of the kit (v1) can be seen on the Instructables website.
