PING! / Bio-trans-lab, with Paula Pin

In this sound session, we accompany Paula Pin's workshop, part of the Bio-trans-lab project, one of the modules of the platform.
Materialized in a van, the CyanoVan is a nomadic science laboratory, open to experimentation with the body and technology, in a logic of learning by doing. The mobile project, which has travelled the world, seeks to disseminate and activate scientific processes open to the community, bringing the queer transhackfeminist laboratory to the space of the gardens of Palácio de Cristal.

Artist and activist Paula Pin's practice combines science, biology and queer identities in the realisation of projects that take the form of interactive sculptures, installations, performances, walks and laboratory experiments, in which the body relates to the world in unusual ways. Pin organises techno-feminist workshops and has collaborated since 2012 in the extensive bio-hack network, Hackteria (which unites body and nature). She has collaborated with institutions such as CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), Geneva; Bergen Assembly; Hangar, Barcelona and KASK, Gant.
