Join Zbigniew Oksiuta for a maker demonstration of small scale gelatin models. These models are miniature representations of larger scale works Oksiuta is known for creating. This workshop will prepare students to manually work with liquids, gels, gases and for chemical and physical experiments, and create dynamic, biological membranes. Parallel to a theoretical introduction, participants will be able individually produce small 3D membranes using plastic hemispheres and latex balloons. 

Exercises include:

Practical experiments behavior of liquids

Shaping of film models

Shaping of minimal surfaces

Shaping closed 3D systems: bubbles and membranes

Injection of living organisms inside.

Using biological polymers as construction material

Practical studies of transformations different state of mater: from liquids (jelly-like to rigid) and vice-versa.
