Brian Degger is an art and science practitioner with a PhD in Molecular Biotechnology. In collaboration with artists and technologists, he uses various methodologies to explore diverse research areas such as bacterial cultivation and fermentation, accessible science technology, aquatic ecologies and open source science. In his home town of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne with a small group of geeks, Brian set up Newcastle Maker Space, a place for creative use of technology.

He will bring some of the things he is making to show and tell.

Birmingham Open Media are developing an open lab space that is available for use for photography and/or biological projects. Karen will introduce the resource and talk about the biohacking projects that inspire her.

What are you working on?

A core part of the Salons is giving people a chance to talk about, demo and ask questions of the projects they’re working on at the moment. That means you? How can a room full of curious, intelligent people help you move forward?

Jenny and Pete from Birmingham Camera Obscura will be talking about the latest iteration of their camera obscura on the eve of its debut at CoCoMad. http://bhamobscura.com
