In March 2017, students of San Francisco Art Institute travel to Berlin to meet with students of Bauhaus University Weimar. Together, they develop an exhibition at the Schillerpalais project space. The exhibition is accompanied by one evening of experimental interactions in the studio of ACUD. After the group returns to San Francisco digital re-configurations of the works shown in Berlin are presented in a show at the Invisible Gallery at SFAI.

A BioArt/BioGaming workshop in cooperation with Thomas Hawranke about playing with microorganisms (Euglena gracilis). The workshop is held at Bauhaus University Weimar, working with the DIY bioloab at the chair of Media Environments. In the workshop, we discuss potential game mechanics for playing with living organisms, and we build a simple prototype connecting Euglena gracilis to the Unreal Engine via a microscope, video tracking and DIY electronics.
A seminar at Bauhaus-University Weimar in cooperation with Thomas Hawranke that discusses and puts to use technologies and artistic/playful practices of dealing with space.
“Projektmodul” at Bauhaus-University Weimar (Media Environments)
The project examines “cyber” and “space” as technological and scientific fields and subjects of artistic practice: Cybernetics, computer art, interaction, networks and space are put into relation to each other in order to develop contemporary positions in art and design – projects dealing with real and mediated space and the interconnections between both.
