EN (Lithuanian version below)

A creative workshop titled “Biochemistry of Emotions” will be organized in a non-disciplinary laboratory Alt lab on the 15–18 of February 2020, located in a new cultural center “Sodas 2123” (Vitebsko 21 & 23, Vilnius). The workshop invites everyone interested in the biological basis of empathy, art, and interdisciplinary projects.

A three days long workshop will be led by an artist Hege Tapio and artist Mindaugas Gapševičius. On Saturday night Ramunė Grikšienė will talk about the neurobiological nature of emotions and Sunday is devoted to practical experimentation with a professional molecular biologist. Besides trying to understand empathy we will take a look into biochemical and physiological processes in the human body. We will also work on our ideas, to be presented by the end of the workshop.

"In a contemporary society that is favoring artificial intelligence, algorithm, logic and analytical processes, it seems important to reintroduce the concept of biology. Humans are built to function on a biological level - where our interaction with the world is run by a mutual response where biochemistry triggers emotional responses and vice versa." - says Hege Tapio, an artist from Norway.

Dr. Ramunė Grikšienė will talk about the neurobiological nature of emotions. She currently works at the Department of Neurobiology and Biophysics, Life Science Center, Vilnius University. Ramunė researches Psychophysiology (EEG, ECG, EMG). Her current project is related to the effect of sex steroids, including hormonal contraceptives, on young healthy women's cognitive functions and emotions.

Program

  • Saturday, the 15th of February @18:00. Discussion with scientist of neurobiology dr. Ramunė Grikšienė (discussion will be open for everyone who is interested, more information here: )
  • Sunday, the 16th of February all day. Practical workshop
  • Monday, the 17th of February all day. Work on ideas
  • Tuesday, the 18th of February @19:00. Presentation of the results

Location: Alt lab laboratory (Vitebsko str. 23, room 304, Vilnius, cultural center “Sodas 2123”) Date: 15-18 of February 2020

If you would like to take part, please register by the email o-o@o-o.lt. Do not forget to include a brief motivation, why you are interested in this workshop.

Contributors

Hege Tapio was born in 1973 in Norway. Lives and works in Stavanger, Norway. Since 2001 her artistic practice has pursued an interest in emerging media interconnecting art, new technology, and science. Her work has been exhibited and presented at conferences widely in Norway and internationally. http://tapio.no/

Dr. Ramunė Grikšienė currently works at the Department of Neurobiology and Biophysics, Life Science Center, Vilnius University. Ramunė researches Psychophysiology (EEG, ECG, EMG). Her current project is related to the effect of sex steroids, including hormonal contraceptives, on young healthy women's cognitive functions and emotions.

Auksė Gaižauskaitė is an alumna of Vilnius University who specialises in Genetics and Molecular Biology. She was a member of the “Vilnius-Lithuania iGEM” team, which won the Grand Prize in the largest, most prestigious, international Synthetic Biology Competition iGEM in 2017. She is an active participant in science promotion activities and always was interested in creative learning and new possibilities in the merger of art and science fields.

Mindaugas Gapševičius obtained his MA at Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1999, and his MPhil at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2016. Since 2016, he has been conducting PhD research at Bauhaus University, Weimar, where he holds an artistic associate chair. Gapševičius’ works question the creativity of machines, and do not presume humans are the only creative force. http://www.triple-double-u.com

LT (English version above)

2020 m. vasario 15-18 dienomis alternatyvioje laboratorijoje Alt lab, veikiančioje besikuriančiame kultūros centre SODAS 2123 (Vitebsko 21 ir 23, Vilnius), vyks kūrybinės dirbtuvės „Emocijų biochemija“. Į jas kviečiami visi besidomintys empatija ir jos moksliniu pagrindu, taip pat tarpdisciplininiais meno ir mokslo projektais.

Trijų dienų kūrybines dirbtuves ves menininkai Hege Tapio ir Mindaugas Gapševičius. Šeštadienio vakarą vyks diskusija su neurobiologe Ramune Grikšiene apie mokslinę emocijų prigimtį, o sekmadienis bus skirtas praktiniam eksperimentavimui su molekulinės biologijos profesionale Aukse Gaižauskaite. Bandydami suvokti, kas yra empatija, dalyviai kartu gilinsis į žmogaus kūne vykstančius biocheminius ir fiziologinius procesus. Kilusios idėjos bus vystomos dirbtuvių metu ir pristatytos renginio pabaigoje.

„Šiuolaikinėje visuomenėje, kuri simpatizuoja dirbtiniam intelektui, algoritmams, logikai ir analitiniams metodams, atrodo svarbu sugrįžti prie biologijos. Žmonės sutverti funkcionuoti biologiniu pagrindu – mūsų sąveika su aplinka pagrįsta grįžtamuoju ryšiu, emocinį atsaką lemia biocheminiai procesai ir atvirkščiai.“ – teigia Norvegų menininkė Hege Tapio.

Autoriai

Hege Tapio gimė 1973 m. Norvegijoje, šiuo metu gyvena ir kuria Stavangeryje, Norvegijoje. Nuo 2001-ųjų kūrybinėje praktikoje domisi naujomis meną, naująsias technologijas ir mokslą jungiančiomis medijomis. Tapio yra pristačiusi savo kūrybą parodose ir konferencijose Norvegijoje ir už jos ribų.

Dr. Ramunė Grikšienė yra Vilniaus universiteto Gamtos mokslų fakulteto Neurobiologijos ir biofizikos katedros docentė. Dirba psichofiziologijos srityje (EEG, ECG, EMG). Šiuo metu atlieka tyrimą apie lytinių hormonų poveikį jaunų sveikų moterų kognityviosioms funkcijoms ir emocijoms.

Practical part

The balanced microbiome may upregulate the release of hormones. It is assumed that one of our microbiome bacteria lactobacillus reuteri increase the release of oxytocin, a so-called social hormone. Would the overdose of oxytocin limit the population of Lactobacillus? Most likely not. But what would be the reason for not having any impact? During the workshop, we will try answering questions while applying synthetic oxytocin on ourselves and also try feeding lactobacillus with oxytocin. While practicing we will develop our ideas to be implemented during Monday, and, if needed, completed on Tuesday.

Additional slides will help us to understand the biochemical processes around hormones. Workshop contributions by Hege Tapio, Aukse Gaizauskaite, and Mindaugas Gapsevicius.
