"ALG-A Algae Architecture" is now part of the permanent exhibition at Ars Electronica Center in Linz. Alginate, in comparison to already commercially used microalgae, has a yet undiscovered potential in architecture. It is the structure-giving element of brown algae and part of their cell walls.
"MyCera" developped by Julian Jauk, Hana Vašatko, Lukas Gosch, Milena Stavric at the Institute of Architecture and Media, Graz University of Technology can be seen as part of the permanent exhibition at Ars Electronica Center in Linz. It had already been included in the MaterialLab presentation.
Julian Jauk contributed to the realization of an art project by Christoph Weber, currently on exhibit at Viennabiennale for Change 2021. Jauk provided a 3D scan of the original object, balanced the ingredients of the printing material - recycled paper, clay and limestone - and finally printed the object, which can be seen on the photo and at MAK Vienna until Ocotber 3rd.
