bioartefactuality

Glass, copper wire, touchboard, speaker

Made in collaboration with Justin Marshall, Northumbria School of Design and Jeff Sarmiento, University of 

Sunderland at the National Glass Centre

 

Working in collaboration with Northumbria School of Design and the University of Sunderland, I create vessels that explore means of relating to bioassemblages through biotechnological interaction. Proximity to the copper on the vessels can be used to trigger sound, light or heat, all signifiers in the environment of the organism. Through participatory workshops that explore our relationship to the bioassemblage, I collect sounds which, if played at low frequency, may increase the organism’s ability to absorb additional DNA.
