FoAM's Splinterfields workshops explore emerging technological arts through the lens of preindustrial crafts and contemporary sciences. In Biochymickal Arts we get our hands dirty with bio-hacking as we learn the fundamentals of biochemistry and the craft of fermentation.

During the workshop we entangle theoretical discussions about biochemical concepts with hands-on experiments in a wet lab and kitchen. The workshop is designed as a master class, bringing together practitioners and enthusiasts in the art, science and technology of biochemistry and fermentation to learn from one another and find connections between their respective fields of interest.

  • how effective is a microwave for sterilisation? pressure cooker as autoclave?
  • good recipes for stains?
  • GFP and/or Luciferase?
  • can we determine vitamin content of fermentations? what increases/inhibits vitamins?
  • which Lactobacillus are able to produce vitamin C (see: L-ascorbate biosynthesis I, L-ascorbate biosynthesis II)?
  • which microorganisms can be chosen to increase vitamin production or production of specific amino acids
  • what sort of things can be done in a 'kitchen lab' and what needs more specialised analytic equipment?
  • good reference for korean techniques?
  • “How can we reboot the ascorbate synthesis pathway in humans?”
