April 11, 2017: Mary (Maggic) Tsang from the MIT Media Lab visited the University of Puget Sound to enlighten us on bio-art, bio-hacking, citizen science with a talk, followed by a hand-on workshop. [an excerpt from Maggic:] // In response to the various ways that institutions both pollute and regulate our bodies through hormones, the Estrofem! Lab develops various methods of "freak science" for hacking estrogen and demonstrating its molecular colonization. From yeast biosensors for detection to DIY column chromatography for urine-hormone extraction, these recipes serve as kinds of 'biotechnical civil disobedience,' combining body-gender politics and queer discourse with civic science. The workshop will begin with a short presentation followed by hormone-extraction action. Bring your own urine!

January 19, 2017: Norton Clapp Theater at University of Puget Sound, Art + Sci Salon reading excerpts from Mr. Burns.
