In case you wanted to see it, here’s our full talk about DINALAB and Wilderness Biocrafting: “Wild Labs for Wild Tools: The Importance of DIY Electronics and Jungle Crafting for Field Biology” – Andrew Quitmeyer, Digital Naturalism Laboratories
We invite you to come to Dinalab, our house, maker space, and art gallery! Invitamos a todos a nuestra casa!
123b Humberto Zarate, Gamboa
Friday, April 5, 6pm
Kitty and Andy’s birthday is coming up in April! This is a combined housewarming and birthday party, but instead of gifts, we’d like you to bring something you’ve made that we can exhibit in our little gallery space for the party.
It can be anything – drawing, photograph, origami, pottery, a scientific tool – as long as you made it! We can display the creations during the party, and you can take yours home at the end of the night . Message us if you have any questions about the thing you want to exhibit!
Also if you want to send a digital thing for us to print, please email us:
Kitty Kelly (Quitmeyer) (wellreadpanda.com) is a librarian turned professional yarn-crafter. Her interests lie in sustainability, knitting + crochet, books, and red pandas. She is the co-developer of the dinalab, and fixes/develops lab infrastructure while running workshops, events and logistics. Perhaps you will be able to become a mobile knitter / hiker like her!
She develops yarncrafted artwork to bring attention to scientific practices and discoveries. You can see more of her works at www.wellreadpanda.com
Dr. Andrew Quitmeyer is a hacker adventurer studying intersections between wild animals and computational devices. He left his job as a tenure track professor at the National University of Singapore to start his own Field Station Makerspace in Gamboa Panama: Digital Naturalism Laboratories (dinalab.net). Here he blends biological fieldwork and DIY digital crafting with a community of scientists, artists, designers, and engineers from around the world. He runs mobile workshops called “Hiking Hacks” where participants build interactive technology in outdoor, natural contexts. The Digital Naturalism Conference (dinacon.org) is his research’s largest event, pulling in over 100 participants annually from all fields to collaborate on finding new ways of interacting with nature. His research also inspired a silly spin-off international television series he starred in for Discovery Networks called “Hacking the Wild.”
