/...from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most 
wonderful have been, and are being, evolved. /(Charles Darwin)

If life started now, the beginning would not be "so simple" as Darwin 
suggested. As we have complicated our relationship with life. The 
boundaries between nature and culture sublimated and we are breathing a 
gaseous mixture of man-made with natural. Our very human culture, 
overrides nature. Our capitalistic biomass manufactures mountains of 
e-waste, beaches of tar, rivers of zinc, oceans of plastic. We are an 
army of plastic surgeons giving the planet a new face. A face that opens 
its eyes to new life forms, new beginnings, new extremities.

What kind of fish will swim in the plastic ocean? Who will be sunbathing 
on the beaches of tar? What plants will thrive in a forest of concrete 
and steel? Which insects will lay eggs on the valleys of asphalt? What 
birds will fly in the hazy mornings of smog stained sky?

In this workshop we will have a quick overview into biological systems 
such as the circulatory system, the reproductive system etc. and how 
these systems (or more specifically organs) might evolve under the 
influence of global environmental transformations.

Somewhere between bio mimicry and critical design, the workshop will 
give you the time and assets to design your own lungs, grow that extra 
organ you always wished for or think about that ultimate meat supplier 
with zero methane impact you have been craving for.

The workshop will provide you with the basic information on certain 
biological systems and anatomical knowledge. The rest is up to your 

All is welcome with an open heart and a critical mind.
