| Fungi Workshop – Pilze und die Biotechnologie der Zukunft |

Within TOP Lab’s activities, Alessandro Volpato hosted a seminar for UdK students at the Medienhaus, training them to produce vegan materials based on fungal composite materials in a self organised laboratory. Goal of the seminar was to experiment with climate-neutral, artistic strategies and get familiar with futuristic approaches to produce commodities. Mushrooms are cultivated to produce food, construction materials, furniture, textiles, packaging materials, dyeing pigments, chemicals, artworks and are studied as medicinal substance producers. The variety of use cases makes of mycology a field of studies with the potential of proposing extraordinary ideas. Students witnessed the challenges posed by this transformation of the production chain, and put together

Trotzdem gibt es nicht nur einen Zustand der Materie, sondern es gibt unterschiedliche Formen, die von Temperaturschwankungen oder Druckunterschieden abhängen. Diese verschiedenen Phasen werden als Aggregatzustände bezeichnet (fest, flüssig, gasförmig). Die Veränderung der externen Bedingungen, denen die Substanz ausgesetzt ist, kann die Zustände der Materie transformieren. Dieser Prozess heißt Phasenübergang.

| El sol pesado — “the heavy sun”  2020 Juan Pablo Gaviria Bedoya |

Juan Pablo Gaviria, work in progress In the intent to define the minute thing in contrast to the immensely large, notions like distance and weight blur their edges to expand or contract their meanings. This process concentrated on the affective reflection of these changes, a series of constant modifications that we have been living in relation to the space between the bodies. Through this process around the elasticity of space and proportion, questions arose about time, cycles and the way in which their understanding is limited to their amount of mass. In the search for weightlessness, the appearance of light
