Bio Ink Experience
Ars Electronica Futurelab (AT)

In nature, we co-exist and interact with many organisms. Working with them helps us better understand other beings and ourselves. Our Bio Ink research goes beyond digital and human-centric technologies by exploring the concept of living ink that grows freely, in a creative symbiosis with nature and other organisms. In the research, biological inks comprised of various microorganisms are created in the bio lab.

When humans and robots work side by side, it’s not always easy: widespread skepticism and a lack of communication paradigms will create new challenges in future work environments. How can trust and acceptance be established in the workplace of the future? How can human-robot work environments be designed?
