Dear all,

Hope you enjoyed our first Disruptive Fridays edition last week! In case
you missed it, you can still watch the video at

Today we continue with the second edition of Disruption Network Lab’s
new programme stream - DISRUPTIVE FRIDAYS (live every Friday at 5pm
Berlin time), this time with a conversation between Michael Ang (artist
and engineer), Andreas Kopp (creative technologist, maker, post-it
artist and teacher) and Lieke Ploeger (Disruption Network Lab).

We will speak about critical making in times of corona: how can we use
digital fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and laser cutting in
the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic? Michael Ang & Andreas Kopp
participated in the recent #wirvsvirus
<https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/wirvsvirus>hackathon organised by the
German government
to find digital community actions against the corona virus and its
effects. Together with Nicholas de Coster they developed a design for an
open source/DIY protective face shield, which is currently being printed
and distributed to help medical professionals stay safe from infection


Follow us live on Friday April 10th at 5pm on our website



Michael Ang (Artist and engineer, CA/DE).
Michael Ang is an artist and engineer who creates light objects,
interactive installations, and technological tools that expand the
possibilities of human expression and connection. Applying a hacker’s
aesthetic, he often repurposes existing technology to create
human-centered experiences in public space and the open field.
Countering the trend for technology to dissociate us from ourselves and
surroundings, Michael’s works connect us to each other and the
experience of the present moment. He is the co-inventor of the
Infl3ctor, the projection system for Digital Calligraffiti. He holds a
Master’s Degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at
New York University, USA and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering
from the University of Waterloo, Canada. https://www.michaelang.com/

production, Fab Lab, youth club and DIY community and workshop space in
Munich, where he gives kids the best start into making and inventing
things by learning them 21st century skill and inspire them to start

installations for exhibitions, events, shop-windows, shopping centers
