Art As We Don't Know It
Imagine listening to alpacas, making photographs with yeast, or using biosignals to generate autonomous virtual organisms. So-called “bioart” invites us to explore artistic practices at the intersection of art, science, and technology. Utilising the tools of life sciences, this rapidly evolving field examines the very materiality of life, the intersection of human and non-human. This book features art and research that has developed and flourished within the wider network of the Bioart Society in Helsinki and Biofilia at Aalto University during the previous decade. With a selection of peer-reviewed articles, personal accounts and interviews, artistic contributions, and collaborative projects, it illustrates the fascinating diversity of this field.
