Art and Domestic Biotechnology

9th -18th April 2010

Brian Degger is currently in working in residence, turning the garage gallery into a space for domestic biotechnology, a literal interpretation of 25SG as an “incubator for live work”.

Strange Fungi

Unknown Organisms Cultured on Ruby Port Wine

Aims: investigating the process of growing microorgansisms as an art practice.

Materials: glowing bacteria, fish eggs, DNA, mushrooms, gelatin, agar, various fermented “live” drinks, vegetarian and milkbased bioplastics.

Outputs: skinning models of domestic artifacts, such as chairs, teapots, straws.

Methodology: trying things out, using open source recipes by others and ruminating on the “live” ness.

Crossover: using the garage space as an “incubator for live work”   and it will literally be that for the period of Brian’s residency.

Brian’s research at 25SG can be followed on the blog  http://bioartforum.com More info about Brian’s previous and present work on his website  http://transitlab.org

Brian will be presenting the outcomes of his residency on Sunday 18th April from 12.30pm as part of 25SG Critique Group.  This event is open to all but please do RSVP.
