For our exhibition at the art fair we called artists to work with petri dishes and jars on the topic of islands. As well under this topic we will show ‘Fleeting Sea – Measuring the Coastline of a Puddle’, a c-print by Elizabeth McTernan and ‘An Opportunity for an Island’, a video of a performance by Ventsislav Zankov.

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics produced from penicillium fungi lurking around bread, citric fruits, and all around. It kills a number of pathogenic bacteria and is considered to be a kind of useful antibiotic for humans. While actually growing penicillium molds, we will talk about interaction between fungi and bacteria. We will also discuss up to date issues around antibiotics and probiotics.

Distillation is a simple chemical process of separating the component substances from a liquid mixture by selective evaporation and condensation. The oldest described distillation equipment dates from about 5500 b.c. which was a pot with top on which sponges where mounted and just squeezed after boiling. Common uses of Distillation are extracting gasoline from petroleum and producing Ethanol. On this we will focus in this workshop.

Penka will be introducing an unusual way to work with glass in a kitchen laboratory circumstances. Up to 15 to 20 min can be enough for the glass to fuse in a microwave kiln. Most common glass in the everyday surrounding contains up to 50-80 % of SiO2. The transformation can be seen in a short term.
