18 April: Living computers, Mars simulations and DIY starships - advancing cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration (speaker: Angelo Vermeulen, TED Senior Fellow, Independent Artist)

This includes the installation art projects Biomodd and Seeker, and the NASA-funded HI-SEAS Mars simulation program. He will focus on co-creation, bottom-up design and alternative leadership strategies. Angelo has a multidisciplinary practice encompassing art, science and engineering, and has been working with communities in different corners of the world for almost ten years. 

Angelo is a founding member of SEAD (Space Ecologies Art and Design), an international collective of artists, scientists, engineers and activists. His latest TED Talk about the Seeker project has garnered over a million views.
