In the current years, a variety of bioart and biodesign works and practices are emerging. We increasingly encounter such works in museums, art spaces and art festivals. When facing such works, how can we have a clue to better understand them?
In this talk, I would like to focus on the figures generated by microbes. Microbial graphics as a expression, such as bacteria, fungi and algae, differ in terms of biological classification, but share common factors such as the need for a culture medium and the generation of dynamic patterns.
We will discuss these factors with reference to the way of seeing and the perspective of analysis in the history of visual culture, and consider microbiological graphics.
Shiho Hasegawa is a Research Fellow at Keio Museum Commons, specializing in modern and contemporary art theory (art history, design studies). She is particularly interested in the intersection of post-modern artistic expression and technology/natural science, from the perspectives of visual culture (film, video), media art, and bioart/biodesign.
This talk is part of the BioHack Academy 2022.
