Science Kitchen

  • facts and fictions of machine

  • summer semester 2013, Fachseminar
  • wednesdays, every two weeks, 18:00 h
  • lab3

Science Kitchen presents facts and fictions of machine.
Diverse lectures/presentations and experiments will be converging on the topic, linked to science and science fiction as reference points.


In the seminar we will look upon scientific and artistic research areas, observing artifacts like space probes, discussing ideas of machine/technologization and rituals or systematics surrounding these, prosthetics as part of the human body and mind, molecular cuisine as algorithmic experiments….


Science Kitchen in its evening format will be established as a series of seminars, continued in following semesters.
