Inspired by research in the field of ethnography of laboratory we will focus on the role of technology and innovation in the creation of the world. We will be interested in the lab processes of changing scales and translation which allow the results of researchers? work not only to reach our homes but mainly change the world into a great laboratory. But what does go on in the labs? How do the solutions worked out there leave the sterile premises of research campuses? What do housewives, anthrax and speed bumps have in common?
