Native Seed Bomb Workshop on Sun, May 12

Native Seed Bomb Workshop is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sun, May 12. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Let’s make seed bombs using native plants appropriate to NYC’s urban landscape!

There’s a lot of pavement in our city. To support a healthy ecosystem, we need to make the most of anywhere that things can grow. Sometimes those places are out of reach, and seed bombs are are an efficient way to get helpful plants growing in ‘unused’ spaces like vacant lots, street dividers, and subway cuts.

We’ll consider New York’s unused growing areas, plants that can grow in them, and what the plants can do, such as supporting pollinators and remediating the soil.

Then we’ll each select seeds appropriate for our particular nefarious plans and make our own seedbombs!

It is Mother’s Day, so this workshop has multiple ways it coincide with the holiday: Celebrate Mother Earth! Honor your own Mom-ness! Bring your mom along! Memorialize a mom no longer with us! Avoid a mom from whom you’re estranged! Give seed bombs to a mom as a present!

Unnatural Biospheres at Tonight’s Interactive Show

Olivia Barr and Kari Love will debut their Unnatural Biosphere’s at tonight’s Interactive Show:

Unnatural Biospheres are visual contrasts held in double chamber glass vessels.  Each environment is expanding and paired based on reactive elements or growth patterns of crystals, plants and microorganisms. Bioluminescence, thermal stimulation, and conductivity are explored in these environments.

 
Glow vessel contains ZnS copper chloride-doped monoammonium phosphate crystals on the interior chamber while sheathed with bioluminescent protista on the exterior. And they both glow.
 
CuSO4 vessel activates copper sulfate in both chambers.  The interior deploys an electrochemical process to grow copper crystal and the exterior floats a plastic seed to cultivate blue vitriol.
 
Additional biospheres include Thermal Vessel, Popcorn Magic Vessel, Sweet Bait Vessel, and more.
 
The collection of vessels is inspired by enclosed ecosystems, artificial biospheres, and symbiosis.  Their reactions and relationships between “organisms” are contrived and never exist in the natural world.
 
We introduce the relationships, but the ongoing growth is uncontrolled.

Katxanawa at the Interactive Show Friday 4/19

Don’t miss Katxanawa at tonight’s Interactive Show:

The Huni Kuins are an ancient Amazonian ethnic group, based between Brazil and Peru. This video aims to honor the Huni Kuin culture and to help give visibility to a group who fights so much for its rights, but remains very vulnerable.
Katxanawa is a traditional Huni Kuin song that expresses a wish for abundance and luck to people.

Recognition of patterns is one of the most elementary activities of man. A forest created from patterns is a metaphor for humanity’s attempt to make visible the underlying logic of nature. Recent technological 3d simulations follow this same principle: from logical descriptions of the world, but mainly through the translation of our spatial perception in terms of a geometric complex, we can create the illusion of reality. Therefore, the artistic proposal that Same Putumi and Vanessa Rosa are developing tries to overcome the notion that indigenous cultures would be opposed to the understanding of the world according to new technologies. On the contrary, ancestral cultures still have much to offer in terms of systems of knowledge and experimentation.

Check out Stella Belikiewicz‘s Fragment Habitat at Fridays Interactive Show:

These pieces are circular mosaics that combine traditional mosaic techniques and materials with specially designed laser cut elements. The series title, “Fragment Habitat,” refers to the basic shapes that form the composition of each piece, which are created by taking circular “snippets” from various diagrams, maps and technical drawings found on the internet. The resulting abstract composition then becomes the ideal habitat for the myriad tiny items that I work with, as well as the larger laser cut elements that surround them. The pieces are designed to be hung in any direction, and to have the look of mysterious maps to fictional lands.

Catch Sonia Li‘s work HEART in projection at Friday’s Interactive Show!

HEART highlights humanity’s deepest physical and emotional reserves to explore life from a theatrical perspective, structured loosely on my internal raw energy cultivated by dance. The dancers are portrayed as monumental statues exuding strength and femininity, advancing video medium to a theatrical and immersive format. In the process of filming, we improvised to explore visceral emotions of love, strength and struggle with their personal stories, creating emotionally driven images inspired by Pina Bausch’s dance theater. Influenced by Tibetan Murals, or ‘talking walls’, I use contemporary technology to activate ancient Buddhist spiritual teachings, including images of nature, humans, goddesses and symbolic portals for higher energetic vibration.

HEART will also on view at Lightbox May 3-5, 2019, as part of the CADAF Fair.

Baltimore Node

Woodworking 101: Jigsaw and Butterfly Joints

Butterfly joints make a fine practice project for showcasing a range of operations on some of the safer more beginner-friendly woodshop tools: sanders, jigsaw, and chisels.

I wanted to make a large frame for an old map of a Baltimore neighborhood, using wood local to it; luckily, someone had recently felled a sycamore tree and cut it into some relatively straight firewood logs, which I quartersawed to bring out the figure. Unfortunately, the logs were each only about a foot long, well short of what I actually needed for framing; to use them, I’d need to butt join the boards to combine them into a much larger one.

There’s a few ways to do that of varying degrees of strength and attractiveness; as these things go a picture frame isn’t especially structurally demanding and almost entirely ornamental, so I decided some butterfly joints in a contrasting color would help turn the limitations of the material into a feature. A scrap piece of walnut fit the bill for the joining wood.

To make the butterflies relatively standard, I used a straightedge to draw a grid, and then drew a line zig-zagging between the intersections in every other row, mirrored in opposing directions.

Cutting along these lines with the jigsaw produces a serrated wood band that alternates between one row and three rows wide. The jigsaw is ideal for jobs like this, making complex non-straight cuts on smaller pieces of wood.

Cut across the widest point, this produces a bunch of bowtie-shaped butterfly joints. Save the sawdust from this work and keep it separate from your other dust and detritus, we’ll use it later.

To fit them to the boards, set the boards end-to-end as they’ll be in the finished product, set the butterflies on top, and trace them as closely as possible with a sharp pencil

You could produce a stronger joint by shaving the butterflies down to maybe a third of the width of the main board and inlaying them with chisels but for the sake of speed and simplicity we’ll just cut the gaps all the way through with the jigsaw. Err on the inside of the lines – you can always cut away more wood, it’s harder to go back and cut out less.

The angles at the end of the butterfly slots are a little too sharp for the jigsaw to handle, so we’ll do them in four parts – cut down one side, cut starting on the other side and making a wide arc down the middle to meet the other cut in the corner, cut down the other side, and finish off the bottom of the slot.

Fit the dovetails to the board, shaving down the gaps with a hand chisel where they’re too small to fit. The end result should let your butterfly joint fit the slots as tightly as possible.

Even the tightest fit will probably leave a visible gap somewhere. We can cover this up almost completely by filling in with a thick mixture of wood glue and dark sawdust, which is where the walnut dust saved from the earlier cutting comes in. Jigsaws produce great, fine-grained, even dust for this kind of use.

We can just mix the sawdust and glue straight on the workpiece. Spread it on the joints and try to squeeze it into the cracks, and let dry. The end result will look like… kind of a mess.

Sand or plane the crust off the surface – I used the jointer here, but a belt sander, hand plane, or fistful of sandpaper will do just fine. With the top layer of mess removed, the remaining joints should be relatively seamless, and will dissappear pretty much entirely when we finish the wood.

I’m still not happy with how the seam between the butt ends of the boards look, so I cut a shallow groove over the seam and inlaid a little strip of 1/8in thick walnut. Sanded down again, this will cover up the whole thing nicely.

An oscillating palm sander with a 220 grit pad will clean up any remaining tooling marks and produce a smooth, even surface for finishing. A few layers of shellac, and we’re ready to put the picture in and hang it on the wall!

Laboratory B

New Lab B Membership Agreement & Code of Conduct

Lab B LogoAs we settle into our new space on North Street, one project Lab B members have been working on is an updated membership agreement and code of conduct. Members are the core of Lab B: they govern our organization democratically, expenses are funded primarily by their dues, and, as an all-volunteer non-profit, their work is what makes things happen.

Thus, to clearly communicate what is expected of Laboratory B members, the following was passed by a vote of the membership this month:

As a member of Laboratory B, I, _______________________, agree to the following, as well as to terms in any future version of this agreement as amended by the organization’s membership:

Financial Accountability

The Lab maintains our autonomy and flexibility through the core of our funding coming from member dues. Therefore I will...

  • ...make every effort to pay dues on time.
  • ...make a good faith effort to pay the appropriate dues on the sliding scale relative to my income and wealth, and will reassess my dues level relative to my means regularly.
  • ...remain in open and responsive communication with the Treasurer to make arrangements if dues become outstanding.
  • ...contribute to supporting the terms of our lease.

Operational Accountability

The Lab is an all-volunteer organization that requires active member participation to function. Therefore I will…

  • ...make good-faith effort to attend the monthly member meetings, to participate in asynchronous decision-making on Loomio, and to keep up on operational conversations on Slack.
  • …make every effort to maintain the cleanliness of the Lab and common spaces.
  • …be responsible about the use of shared space and leaving project spaces clear when I leave the space.
  • …be responsible for the actions of any invited guests.
  • ...be willing to share efforts in running Lab activities, such as hosting regular public hours, offering skill-shares, volunteering at community outreach events, etc.
  • ...shut off lights, lock doors, turn off power strips, and follow shutdown procedures when leaving the building.

Social Accountability

To maintain a healthy community, Lab members take accountability for their behavior towards both their fellow members and the community at large. Therefore I will...

  • ...advance and exemplify our mission and vision.
  • ...maintain the active sponsorship of a Lab member for issues of mediation and dispute resolution.
  • ...contribute to a goal of restorative justice. I will participate in good faith in a restorative justice process if asked to by the Lab community.
  • ...maintain confidentiality about information and conversations if asked to by a fellow Lab member, and about topics designated confidential by the membership as a whole.
  • ...abide by the Lab Code of Conduct with the following elements, and as may be amended in the future by the Lab membership:
    • Generally: Be excellent to each other!
    • Curiosity: Cultivate a culture of curiosity and exploration. Don’t discourage enthusiasm and exploration of a topic by others because it does not interest you.
    • Respect: Treat fellow Lab members & visiting community members with respect.
    • Disagreement: The Lab encourages the free exchange of ideas, while respecting others’ experiences and perspectives. We agree to work together to cultivate an environment that creates space for approachability and for resolving disagreements safely and productively.
    • Boundaries: Respect the boundaries of others, and be clear and explicit in the communication of your boundaries if you feel uncomfortable. If you have trouble communicating your boundaries, seek assistance from your sponsor or another trusted Lab member. An ounce of awkward conversation is worth a pound of festering resentment.
    • Reputation: Do not sully the good name of the Lab. Operate with respect and conscientiousness in the community in public-facing contexts, and be cognizant of the Lab’s social clout and the ramifications of that identity out in the wider world. Agree to report ASAP any personal or observed actions that might reflect poorly on the Lab community to the Lab President (or another Board member).
    • Humility: As a member, I agree to admit that there will be times that I am wrong. The Lab is full of sharp folks, but intelligence is not an excuse for arrogance.

Introduction to Electric Etching on Sat, Mar 16

Introduction to Electric Etching is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Mar 16. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Electric Etching is the process of using electricity and an electrolyte to etch a pattern onto a metal surface. A non-conductive pattern is placed over the material to be etched. The metal to be worked on is then grounded. The live wire is then connected to the applicator. When the applicator is applied to metal surface, wherever is not masked will be etched. The advantage of using electricity to etch metal is that it is a very predictable process. If it is desirable to have a deep etch, a higher current or longer exposure time increases the prominence of the edge. This class will cover the basics of electric etching. It’ll be broken down into 3 parts. The first part will cover a demonstration of the etching process. Students will be able to practice on a scrap piece of metal. In the second part of the class, students will be making their own masks out of Vinyl. In the 3rd part of the class, students will etch metal plates that we will provide or items that they want etched. After etching, students will be polishing the surface to protect the etching. We DO NOT recommend etching sentimental items, items of great value or family heirlooms.

Laboratory B

Lab B Moves into New Digs at 12-22 North Street!

Location of the new Lab B entrance on the exterior of the buildingAfter a heroic move-out effort by Lab members and volunteers, and a month of being a "virtual Lab" operating out of a storage locker, Loomio group, and pop-up event spaces (thanks, Bytes.co!) we're pleased to announce that Laboratory B once again has a space!

After considering several possibilities, our membership voted to move into a room on the second floor of 12-22 North Street in the Old North End. In addition to our new HQ space, where we'll be holding public hours, meetings, co-working sessions and small workshops, the lease also gives us access to a number of shared spaces we can use after business hours, including a dedicated electronics lab, a sizeable class/event space on the first floor, and basement storage.

Many things about the Lab will stay the same, but a sampling some of the changes the move offers that our members are excited about include:

  • Handicapped Accessibility for Many Events: In the Soda Plant, all of our space was up a set of steep stairs, limiting accessibility of workshops and other events for folks with mobility challenges. While the Lab's dedicated room is similarly only stair-accessible, our ability to reserve the large downstairs space means that many of our public-facing workshops and events, such as mobile security night and LAN parties, will take place in accessible spaces.
  • Direct Access to Our Space In Off Hours: In the Soda Plant, the outside door was usually locked after 5pm, so public event attendees needed to ring a doorbell and be guided through a labyrinth to access the space. So, we're every excited that our new space has a door opening directly to the outside.

    Some members in the new Lab B (after hauling up the first load of chairs and a table)

  • Environmental Impact: In the Soda Plant (and the Hood Plant before it), we were occupying the decaying remains of industrial infrastructure, and it definitely showed in the winter time with heat loss through single-pane windows, etc. By contrast, 12-22 North Street is an optimized energy-efficiency machine: it was built by a worker co-op in the 1980s with a passive solar design, has significant installed solar electric capability (including wiring for DC lighting), and is run by a landlord who works on IoT sustainability and environmental impact monitoring. The fact that we have a monthly kWh cap in our lease has sparked our thinking on how to sip rather than chug energy (no more using out-of-date servers and crypto miners as de facto space heaters in the winter). Whether this transition means our aesthetic center-of-gravity will shift from cyberpunk to solarpunk remains to be seen...
  • Space that is more fully "ours": At the soda plant, we were subletting from Brandthropology, who were incredibly accommodating partners, but pretty much all of our space was at least somewhat shared, in they needed to walk through our main room to get to the shared Couch Room and kitchen. We now fully control our core space, while also having access to additional shared spaces and resources in the building.

We'll be spending the next few weeks moving in and setting up, and are planning to host a "Lab Warming Party" for our initial Thursday public hours on February 21 from 7-9pm. For more details, check the Facebook event, and, as always, keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming Lab B happenings!
