LabEasy was a two-week residency and “feral research” experiment at the Arts Catalyst‘s East London HQ aimed at democratising, demystifying and widening participation in lo-fi, hands-on biotechnology – from bioluminescent bacteria to amateur genetic modification, cellular gastronomy to DIY lab equipment. LabEasy was a collaboration between MadLab and The Arts Catalyst, and funded through a Wellcome Trust Small Arts award.
In Autumn 2014, LabEasy received the European KiiCS award for art and science innovation. You can read more about the award here.
