TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamp (BFBC) has been concluded successfully with its first theme, New Repro-Rebirthing Retreat (NR-RR) - Gestalt Bioart / Bodyart on the Beach (GBBB) with twelve media artists, bio artists and performing artists gathered in the Greek island of Corfu to discuss ovum and sperm collection, cryogenic storage and speculative artificial womb apparatus design on 5-14 May 2023. TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamp (BFBC) is set as a live role playing game based on social experimentation and individual improvisation aiming to host a remarkable array of individuals pushing the boundaries of art, technology, and interdisciplinary exploration.

Part of TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamp 2023 crew: Stefanía Ólafsdóttir, a Finnish interdisciplinary artist exploring water's socio-political aspects; Daisy Fairclough, a UK-based chaos clown intertwining chaos magic, performance, and womb-focused therapies; Kalan Shh! from the USA, an artist performing obtuse interventions into collapsitalism; Mary Maggic, an Austria-based artist delving into body and gender politics through biohacking; Dann Disciglio, a US-based intermedia artist exploring contemporary ecologies; Chanee Choi, a US-based transdisciplinary artist blending East Asian craftwork with modern tech; Sara Cowdell, a New Zealand performance artist, facilitator, and curator examining society through intimate modalities; Angelina Almukhametova, a US-based artist creating responsive light and sound installations. 

Participants in TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamp 2023 were also the TTTseers Maria Antelman, a Greek-American artist reevaluating technological progress from a feminine perspective and Laura Rodriguez, a Netherlands-based artist integrating living systems and new media; the Feral Visitors Rüdiger Wassibauer, co-founder of Schmiede Hallein, Elsa Ferreira, a freelance journalist specializing in technology, and Erik Knudsen, a filmmaker and Professor of Media Practice at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK; as well as the TTTfellows 2023 Lyndsey Walsh, a Berlin-based artist, designer, and researcher exploring disease, identity, and speculative future narratives and Aisen Caro Chacin, a US-based scholar blending art, science, and technology developing medical prototypes.

Comprehensive documentation comprising photographs, a video mini-documentary, and a Makery article titled "Exploring science and intimacy through artificial reproduction in Greece" provide an insightful perspective on the program's endeavors, capturing its essence and impact. Our site was the very Green and Super Rural Bioporos Organic Ecotourism Farm on Lake Korrison, a bird sanctuary and inland sea. Overlapping with TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamp 2023, TTTfellows: Art and Science Residency series took place on 17-30 April (online) and 1-16 May 2023 on the island of Corfu. Responsible for the coordination of TTTlabs and TTTfellows are Adam Zaretsky, artistic director, and Dalila Honorato, scientific director.
