Thank you for participating in M(y)crobes: Create your own Wearable Biosensor. In the next few weeks, you may receive a survey about the workshop as well as follow-up information about the "data" you collected.


M(y)Crobes: Create your own Wearable Biosensor -- a Computational Fashion Workshop
We share our regular world with billions of bacteria and fungi, but are for the most part unaware of how they shape our world -- unless we get sick.  What if you could make a wearable biosensor that showed you in real-time how your own body's ecosystem works in concert with the environment?

Join The Cotard Syndicate for this workshop, where you will learn about their research and make a biosensor that you can wear, track, and read the data collected from your micro- and macro-ecosystems.

MATERIALS (included in workshop fee)

- 3D-Printed Holder

- Agar

- Amber Glass Bottle with Dropper

- Leather Cord for wearing sensor

- Chia or Radish Seeds


M(y)Crobes is a project by The Cotard Syndicate, comprised of neuroscientist Siddharth Ramakrishnan, PhD and media artists and Eyebeam alumni Stefani Bardin and Toby Heys. The project explores our cohabitation with microbes that live within, on and around us.  The project aims to bring these organisms to the forefront by culturing them, allowing us to see how they directly impact a living being like a small plant, while also showcasing the variety of microbial cultures that we may encounter/host everyday.  These cultured microbes will actively affect the growth of seedlings placed in the agar-wearable, thereby allowing us to observe how these ubiquitous life forms actively affect life and growth by altering environments.

This workshop is in conjunction with Eyebeam's Computational Fashion initiative.

Please note: A follow-up will be scheduled during this workshop for an opportunity to bring back your biosensor and learn how to read your M(y)crobes data.
