Mehdi Doumi is from Algeria and England, studied biomedical engineering, and is a technical leader in Research and Innovation at L’Oreal USA - researching human perception of cosmetic products. He has been part of NPO Ligo Project, promoting science in U.S. culture through humor and videography. He also enjoys carpentry, improv, and drawing satirical cartoons. Over the last 4 years he has committed himself to creating abstract artwork to any K-12 educator across the USA. He hopes that each art piece stimulates student curiosity about math and science topics, especially in a challenging teaching environment.

Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority
BY PAUL VANOUSE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
“I’m a bio media artist. And what that means is I work self-reflexively, with the tools and technologies of the life sciences.”
In Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Professor of Art at the University at Buffalo, Paul Vanouse, provides an overview of his work as a bio media artist. As Director of the newly created Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo, Vanouse works with artists and philosophers and people who wouldn’t normally have a direct connection to do create work in a life sciences laboratory, and is actively engaged with Coalesce’s artist residency program. Vanouse’s own work has recently focused on DNA fingerprinting, removing the inherent layers of authority from DNA with an interest in the very visual representation of DNA. His recent projects, Latent Figure Protocol and Ocular Revision use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting.

Steamed Up over STEM
BY JOHN DEBACHER
@ VOL 22
ON APR 13, 2017
What's all the fuss and focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our schools? It's spread beyond earlier efforts to proactively help our young women not feel stigmatized if they enjoy an equation or two, and now threatens to spread a cumulonimbus over our educational system. Where are the Arts in all this? Not even chopped liver -- that might qualify as culinary science. I believe that, when you get beyond all the flash of STEM's appeal, it's components can, upon reflection, be seen as progeny of the Arts. The necessary components of abstraction, classification and description rely on humankind's unique language abilities, as do the symbols in formulas and theorems. Science could not have developed without the fundamental dance of discourse and recorded evidence that developed from the advancement of oral storytelling into poetry to literature...and of course, how could we survive any of this without humor?
DIY Your DNA - Genetics For Everyone
BY PHILIPP BOEING
@ VOL 149
ON JUL 26, 2017
"Lots of people can hack, make and create their own technologies and move from being just a consumer to being a participator or even a creator."
In "DIY your DNA - Genetics for Everyone" From PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 149, Philipp Boeing wants to do for genetics what Arduino has done for electronics, making it open to everybody. As co-founder of Bento Lab, he’s helped create the world’s first easy-to-use DNA laboratory. Boeing will tell us about his journey to date with Bento Lab – and what the future holds for citizen science!
Philipp Boeing さんは初心者でも簡単に扱うことが可能なマイコンボード、Arduinoが電子機器の世界に貢献したことを遺伝学にも応用したいと考えています。 Bento Labの共同設立者として、Philippさんは世界で初めて使い勝手の良いDNAラボの創造に貢献しました。 ボーイングは、Bento Labとの今日までの道のりについて、そして未来が市民科学にとってどう歩んでいくことになるかをお話してくださいます！
