My practice across scientific research, design, and art involves the innovation, development, deployment, and evaluation of novel physical devices and interactive systems that advance our computing culture, encourage broad participation by non-experts within science and engineering, improve human health and well-being, and provoke critical debate and inquiry concerning our existing and emerging technological society.
The Hybrid Ecologies Lab (H•E•L) explores scientific research, design, and art through the innovation, development, deployment, and evaluation of novel physical devices and interactive systems that advance our computing culture, encourage broad participation by non-experts within science and engineering, improve human health and well-being, and provoke critical debate and inquiry concerning our existing and emerging technological society.
The Artist in Residence (AIR) Program at Recology San Francisco is a unique art and education program that provides Bay Area artists with access to discarded materials, a stipend, and a large studio space at the Recology San Francisco Recycling and Transfer Station. By supporting artists who work with reused materials, Recology hopes to encourage people to conserve natural resources and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment.
One of the best and most popular DIY tips I shared in my newsletter last year was this one. In this video on Tech Tangents, AkBkukU shows how you can use CA/Superglue and baking soda to reconstruct and repair broken plastic hinges, pins, and other parts on old computers and consumer electronics.
We are looking for a 3 year Postdoc on the topic of 3D printing (3DP) of spare parts used to repair consumer products. 3DP is seen as an interesting process for repairing physically broken products, i.e. in replacing broken parts such as cogwheels or...

Construction for Berlin's tallest building is scheduled to be completeled in 2023. Plans are for 3400 software developers to occupy 28 of the 35 stories. It will be located on the Warschauer Bridge, next to the East Side Mall, a relic of the Media Spree era. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg will be transformed into a hotspot for tech giants. The mantra of it brings jobs is repeated. Of course those jobs are not intended for local residents. The neighborhood will see a demographic shift, with tech firms disrupting the neighborhood staples: small businesses, schools, community initiatives and cultural centers. In Silicon Valley, the consequences of laissez faire capitalism is apparent. The recent victories in New York City and Kreuzber show that we are not simply at the mercy of real estate, but that we can successfully push back against tech giants through grassroots coalitions. This is exactly what we aim for. Together we creatively and loudly protest against the Amazon infestation in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. A conglomerate like Amazon, which harasses employees, pays no taxes while earning hundreds of billions, and propogates digital surveillance, has no business in Berlin or anywhere! The city belongs to us!
It was supposed to be a utopia. Instead … it’s complicated. Here’s a guide to our online future — with maps, graphs and cats.
Social studies of waste, pollution & externalities

Circular economy concepts are giving new hope to our planet which is littered with post-consumer waste – all manner of plastics, PET bottles, textiles and countless other materials which are the byproducts of excessive consumption.
Deko Eko wants to contribute to this significant change by accelerating the development of a circular economy marketplace. We propose an innovative upcycling platform which will completely change the way you think about waste. We turn waste into profit by facilitating the highest possible jump in value – from zero to a market-ready product.
Our climate is changing at an extraordinary rate. While this is plainly visible in our glacier landscapes, we also rely on aerial and digital technologies to see the full extent of changes across larger scales and timeframes.
This project aims to adapt these technologies creatively to communicate the science behind our changing climate in more compelling ways.
We're helping food growers build better soil and adopt sustainable growing practices, while working together to gather soil moisture data from around Europe, to help society adapt to extreme climate events.
Our vision of Green Fablab (or Hackerspace, or Makespace) is that in these geographically distributed spaces, they can be considered not only as a fabrication spaces, but also a recycling, remanufacturing and refurbishing places in order to contribute to a more circular economy
The project aims to create a social infrastructure, the Waste Fab Lab, to be implemented in the urban context. It will be a place where new jobs will be created in order to manage, repair, prepare for
We are fans of the Precious Plastic project, one of the key examples on how cities could start to reclaim the waste humans put in their streets, but more importantly: in the nature that then feed us…
