DeadWood

Repository for Participants of Night of the Living Deadwood img_6025

Night of the Living Deadwood was a workshop at AND Festival 2015 led by microbiologists Dr Rod Dillon, Dr Viv Dillon and Dr Jackie Parry, based at Lancaster University, which forms part of an ongoing collaboration with Abandon Normal Devices to explore current concepts in the biological and biomedical sciences.

I was invited by Rod Dillon and AND to come along and explore the workshop and prototype something. I blogged about it here.

Useage

This is largely documentation and resources for future projects exploring the biological sciences from Organic Computation to developing genetic languages.

It's on github because Im interested in biological communication and computation and how maker/hack space cultures can influence these more gooey tiny cultures. I wonder about transferring tools from tech/software cultures in the biological science sphere: Imagining growing git in petri-dish repo's and sudo apt-get 'ing my own genetic mutation, muscular dystrophy
