We are thrilled to welcome an impressive sci-art exhibition called Culture as Medium curated by Margaret MacDonald. This exhibit will be in our space now till May 20th (Wed-Fri evenings and Saturday's till 5pm). Don't miss the opening reception Thursday April 21st 7-9 pm.
Please check out some of the dates of other upcoming events (see below)!
"The exhibition Culture as Medium blurs the boundaries between science and art, artists and scientists. As François-Joseph Lapointe states, “For me, experimental science and experimental art are two branches of the same tree, identical twins separated at birth.” Tal Danino’s series of Microscopic Bacterial Videos (on view at Motor House) imparts the haunting beauty of the synchronized dynamic behavior of bacteria while revealing cutting edge research in synthetic biology. To produce Sequence Dress (on view at BUGSS), Anna Dumitriu immersed herself in whole genome sequencing research of clinically important bacteria in order to, as Dumitriu writes, “artistically explore the emerging technology of whole genome sequencing of bacteria and consider what it means to us personally, culturally and socially.” With his performance experiment, 1000 Handshakes (to be performed in Baltimore on April 2, 2016), Lapointe creates what he describes as “metagenomic self-portraits” or “microbiome selfies” that illustrate the metamorphosis of his bacterial self as he shakes hands with those around him."
