เหลู้าบ – LLL CoLaboratory – CNX 2567

17. – 21. Jan 2567 (2024) – Chiang Mai, Thailand

LLL CoLaboratory (เหลู้าบ แลบ) is a “do-it-with-others” Art & Science open laboratory. Our goal is to gather the enthusiastic people and work on various multidisciplinary and speculative projects. We organize a 5-days “OPEN LAB” session for everyone to access. We are providing a space for share equipment, material, consulting, workshop and opensource for learning and working on projects.

LLL CoLaboratory (เหลู้าบ แลบ) คืองานที่จะชวนทุกคนมาทดลองร่วมกันในธีม ศิลปะ และวิทยาศาสตร์ ทั้งการเล่นกับนาโนเทคโนโลยีในชีวิตประจำวัน การตัดต่อพันธุกรรมด้วยอุปกรณ์บ้าน และการหมักดองจากจุลชีพ เป้าหมายของเราคือการรวมกลุ่มผู้คนที่สนใจในการทำงานแบบสหสาขา และการทำโปรเจคที่สำรวจอนาคตของเรา กิจกรรมนี้จะมีขึ้น 5 วัน ที่เราจะได้มาใช้ห้องทดลองเปิดด้วยกัน เราจะมีอุปกรณ์ และองค์ความรู้จาก opensource เพื่อให้ทุกคนได้มาทำงานร่วมกัน เราจะมีทั้งกิจกรรมที่เราจัดขึ้นทั้ง เวิร์คชอปหรือการฉายภาพยนต์ และมีส่วนที่เปิดให้ผู้ร่วมได้ร่วมตัดสินใจร่วมกัน

LLL stands for Laab-Lu-Lao, which directly refers to Laab (Thai minced meat with spice – usually raw), Lu (Meat with raw blood), and Lao (Alcohol).

Abao Nano Doctor Blade Hacker Residency

Shih Wei-Chieh (Taipei, Taiwan) Hacker residency documentation- 11. September – 1. November 2023

The amusing title of this Hacker-in-Residence (hosted in Hackteria ZET – Open Science Lab and the Hackerspace collective Bitwäscherei ) comes from the substantial involvement of the Doctor blade in DIY coating experiments, marking the outset of Shih Wei Chieh’s first year of phd programe at Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan. The primary objective of the residency was to identify substitutes for FTO glass in order to develop a transparent film substrate. Although the goal was not achieved during the 7-weeks residency, various parameters were meticulously documented, including low-temperature sintering for TiO2 photo-electrodes and high-temperature sintering for TiO2-electrodes on mineral fibers. These details can be found in the “Residency Research Documentations” section on the wiki.


Interview with Shih Wei Chieh in Makery, published by Ewen Chardronnet, December 2023

Part 2/2: “A residency to research Grätzel cells at Hackteria, encounter with Shih Wei Chieh“, Makery 2023

What was the purpose of your residency in Zurich? What did you learn from it?
“In addition to my pursuit of practical solar applications, my most successful DSSC prototype currently produces only around ~2.5 mA per square centimeter. The significance lies more in the opportunities to collaborate with scientists and engage in visits to the laboratory at ETH. This experience has served as valuable training for me, offering insights into how scientists work with nanomaterials. Understanding the conventional applications and purposes, as well as the established protocols for synthesizing nano materials, has been a rare and precious experience for artists. It raises pertinent questions about the relationship between art and science, and how these two domains can and should collaborate effectively.”

“Although it was a fantastic experience for artists to work with scientists with complete freedom and full access to knowledge, I wonder how we can repeat the model without any funding to support the free sofa accommodation and the efforts from volunteers. On the other hand, I believe this is a great model that differs from those residency organized by institutes and centers which always comes with political requirements and demands. The property of the community plays a big part too. During the residency I have met many community members in Bitwäscherei, the role of them are usually very mixed, like chemist with musician background or artist with scientific degree, or engineer with profound knowledge for history of analog computer, the people are a great library and the culture was naturally provided by the community. This dynamic is relatively rare in Taiwan, where career roles tend to be more singular, and scientists typically don’t serve other fields in the same integrated manner.”


施惟捷 Shih Wei Chieh (also known as Abao) works with wearable art, e-textile, and laser audiovisual. He is also a self-taught material science researcher. His “Laser Dye Project” innovates an optical textile printing method by programmable laser projector and New Cyanotype solution, which inspire him to explore the trans-disciplinary collaboration between new medias and traditional craft techniques. He’s the founder of “Tribe Against Machine”, a project exploring how culture preservation works with modern technologies. His current research develops a DIY dye sensitized solar glass made with natural dye in a large size format, which is used for both energy and as a smart interface for sonic art.
