19:00 to 21:00
location: Gouvernestraat 133, Rotterdam

Protocells are the elements the series is made from. Beesley will give an introductory talk. Then Beesley will present a quasi-metabolic 'happening' that uses collective neurosignaling to grow next-generation Hylozoic Series protocell formations. Participants will be given headsets and divided into two groups. Sound and light stimuli will synchronize the groups' thought patterns, which will in turn drive syringe pumps feeding a protocell mixture. This primitive, quasi-metabolic system integrates human thought patterns with interactive computing and synthetic biology. The notion of a collective consciousness is at the heart of the event.

With Philip Beesley, Mark-David Hosale, and Alan Macy.
