Biofilie Lab-ALMA Toolkit

Giulia Tomasello and Isabel Farina give the talk Biofilie Lab-ALMA Toolkit, introducing the Biofilie Lab project, which they will be developing during their stay at the Hangar Wetlab.

Biofilie Lab is an interdisciplinary project aimed to explore the biosocial and political intersectionality of human-vaginal microbiome combining disciplines like art, design, microbiology, medical anthropology and feminist theories. The project will engage in a political questioning of the emergence of the new scientific understandings on vaginal microbiome. This last part of Alma Toolkit has been until now only conceptualized and explored during the art residency at Hangar in Barcelona and at Waag Society in Amsterdam. They have been only able to disclose during ALMA Toolkit participatory workshops some samples of isolated bacteria. ALMA Toolkit project won the first prize of S+T+Arts Program Fertilization and coordinated by Inova+.

Giulia Tomasello (she/her) is an interaction designer and educator who combines biohacking and wearable technology to break taboos on females’ bodies.Isabel Farina (she/her) is a medical anthropologist currently enrolled in a PhD program at Politecnico of Milan in the departments of Management and Service Design. Giulia and Isabel are co-founders of ALMA, a studio that combines design, technology and anthropology to co-create tools for radical cultural change in female intimate health.
