Body of Matter

Body of Matter

Body based bio art & design

An aesthetically manipulated pig heart-transplant because 'beauty is truly on the inside', a drone controlled by your own brain' and a DIY toolkit to manipulate your own bacterial data.

Body of Matter presents the work of ten artists that advance our ideas about the body.  By tapping into the hugely expanded science of the body through fields such as Microbiology, Neuroscience, Genomics, and tissue culturing the participating artists in Body of Matter are able to enhance, protect, monitor, stimulate, and replicate functions of the body and behavior of human cells as never before.

Among the participants are the three winners of the Bio Art & Design Award 2015. They arre joined by two previous laureates and five additional artists working at the forefront of bioart and biodesign.

During the opening at Friday November 27 there will be a special program with a special performance by Orion Maxted and an interview with the winners.
