(Art)ScienceBLR is a public laboratory at the Srishti Institute of Art,Design and Technology for artists and designers to engage with scientific practices. We look at the artistic, social and political implications of technologies from computing to biotechnologies. Our work exists at the intersection of art-science and pedagogy, creating spaces of dialogue and interaction between artists, designers and scientists. Since our inception in 2009 we have focused on using DIY techniques to build low-cost laboratory equipment, so as to offer more accessible forms of engagement with the life-sciences.We also run a community electronics and BioLab which encourages students and the community to make/hack and prototype. .
Build your own DIY radio station
Workshop/Apprenticeship program. Invites participants to run RadioQ for a whole month(August-September 2020) Radio Quarantine ran during the first half of the lockdown in March 2020. During its brief existence, we interviewed scientists, artists, activists and historians, besides also running a regular program of music from around the world. M

Sensors Probes and Detectors II
In the context of art, sensors are important because they form a bridge between the natural world and the digital.From a design perspective, they are vital to creating interactive objects. Sensors, probes and detectors II is the next level of Sensors, Probes and Detectors
Networking Bodies is a collaborative project between Philips , S.Labs and (Art)ScienceBLR. The project focuses developing Remote Health Monitoring systems.
This three day workshop by (Art)ScienceBLR is open to Artists, Teachers, students, scientists. The workshop will cover Do it yourself techniques in building laboratory equipment. We will repurpose trash, consumer electronics to build scientific equipment and retake the scientific instrument from the establishment and institutions and turn it into a tool for personal enquiry and personal expression. We will discuss the aesthetics of the scientific instrument and other issues in Citizen Science.
Sensors, Probes and Detectors
Sensors,probes and detectors is a gentle introductory class to electronics. In the context of art, sensors are important because they form a bridge between the natural world and the digital.From a design perspective, they are vital to creating interactive objects.
Biodesign:State of Our Environment
This workshop will be conducted by the ArtScienceBLR at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology. In this workshop, we will look at different ways of gathering and disseminating information about pollutants in water. We will build devices to test for water quality,design maps and conceptualize ways of visualizing this data. We will also collect stories about water sources and water sheds.
Ecstatic electronics was an 8 day course introducing students at Srishti to the basics of electronics.
DIY Microscopy Workshop for Teachers-(Art)ScienceBLR Lab
DIY Microscopy workshop for Teachers from CERTAD. The workshop includes a walk to the Puttenhalli Lake, GPS tagging, water sample collection.We will also introduce to the Diatom Extraction process.
