In the pop-up lab, the work of Slovenian artist Zoran Srdić Janežič is created gradually. The artwork is called Biobot, in which he tries to make a bionic organism that combines mechatronical parts with biological parts. Working with living organism always requires a very special approach, which is linked to the necessary time you need for growing these organisms. In the lab, neurons are going to be grown. Over the weeks, a biotechnician will take care of the living neurons. But the neurons are not the artwork. The artwork is a performance in which Zoran will try to teach a robot to move, using neurons and with the help of a deep learning algorithm.
12 November: assembly of the lab
22 November: hand-over between the Slovenian and the Belgian biotechnician
