Today's Open Lab hours are inspired by the natural world in which we live with Flower House, Assemble, BoXZY, TechShop, and the Institute for Plant Motivation. On the hour, The Institute for Plant Motivation & Flower House lead people through a short session on forming intimate consensual relationships with plants and Kokedama workshop. Participants leave with a certificate and clay wearable or seedball. Continue adding to the Archivist's Field Notes, and rapid prototype your artifacts using basic electronic components like LEDs, buzzers, and motors with help from BoXZY and TechShop instructors Jayla & Naomi.
