Proof of Concept

Inspired by the conference series Taboo-Transgression-Transcendence in Art & Science TTTlabs BioFeral.BeachCamps (BFBC) are highly speculative hybrid events of intense co-creation, co-education and co-development. TTTlabs BFBC are multi-person field work experiences that allow time and focus for in-depth play with concepts and practices of: developmental biology & deprogramming, new reproductive technology & rewilding, animal studies, human germline genetic editing, zoe.ferality, performance art & nonhuman enrichment. TTTlabs BFBC allow space for creative labs, workshops and living artworks in the field of biomedia and creative performance utilizing: open source technologies; DIY (do-it-yourself), DIWO (do-it-with-others) and DITO (do-it-together) cultures; STEAM concepts, interdisciplinary and non-formal education; and hybrid activities, developed in a rural and rustic think-tank setting. Novel experimental perspectives in new reproductive technology, bioart, citizen science, environmental studies, apparatus electronics and body performances are expected to result from collaborating together in a creative working environment of temporary social and communal experimentation. Skillshare sessions, workshops and DIWO collaborations are expected to be self organizing. 

The three parts TTTlabs BFBC workshopology series is “here for all your bioart meets body art needs”, dedicated to Psychic Fertility Performance Training (PFPT) and focusing on concepts of new reproductive technology as a rhizomatic, DIWO assemblage of skill-share workshops in rural retreat:
