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”.
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 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.
