Opening ReShape

Opening ReShape

Mutating Systems, Bodies and Perspectives

Some things never change: electrons, the speed of light, the smell of fresh coffee. But everything is constantly in motion and the universe looks different from moment to moment as particles, waves, forces and objects everywhere act upon each other. The continuous transformations of life on Earth and particularly the indelible part of humankind in the process are central themes of the exhibition ReShape, on show in MU from November 30, 2018 to March 10, 2019. With ReShape MU director Angelique Spaninks and guest curator William Myers present the work of twelve international artists and designers, including the three winning teams of the Bio Art & Design Award 2018 .

The Bio Art & Design Award aims to manifest the creative potential of the life sciences to a broad audience. The prize-winning projects demonstrate how bio-art and bio-design can profoundly influence our lives and alter the way we view the world.
