9780500239322: Bio Art: Altered Realities

A visually striking, authoritative survey of the crossover between art and biotechnology by an expert in the field

In an era of fast-paced technological progress and with the impact of humans on the environment increasing, the concept of “nature” itself seems called into question. Bio Art explores the work of “bio artists,” those who work with living organisms and life processes to address the possibilities and dangers posed by biotechnological advancement.

A contextual introduction traces the roots of bio artistic practice, followed by four thematic chapters: Altering Nature, Experimental Identity and Mediums, Visualizing Scale and Scope, and Redefining Life. The chapters cover the key areas in which biotechnology has had an impact on today’s world, including ecology, biomedicine, designer genomes, and changing approaches to evolutionary theory, and include profiles of the work of sixty artists, collectives, and organizations from around the world. Interviews with eight leading bio artists and technologists provide deeper insight into the ideas and methods of this new breed of creative practitioners. 300 illustrations

From the Author:

BioArt profiles contemporary art that demonstrates how advances in the life sciences and their application as biotechnology have a dislocating effect on culture. Specifically, these advances alter our notions of the self, environment, and the definition of life. Popular understanding strains to catch up with these changes while artists are detecting and vigorously responding to them, creating new images, sculpture, living material installations, video, and performance. In this way the work of bioartists echoes that of the Surrealists of the early 20th century who reacted to the new terrain of the unconscious and widespread anxiety in the aftermath of industrialized war.

About the Author:

He has worked for the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Guggenheim, and Genspace, the first community biotech lab in the United States.

Descrizione libro Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In our age of fast-paced biotechnological progress and humans increasing impact on the environment the autonomy of nature has come into question. We can now engineer living things, blur the biological distinctions between humans and animals, and influence parts of our world that we cannot see such as DNA and genes. These discoveries and far-reaching developments have created fertile ground for artistic expression. This book reveals the ways in which the work of bio artists offers new meanings for our lives in the wake of scientific discovery, as well as new frameworks for describing them. Four thematic chapters cover the key areas in which biotechnology has had an impact on today s world, including ecology, biomedicine, designer genomes and evolutionary theory, profiling the work of 60 artists, collectives and organizations from countries including France, Germany, the US, the Netherlands, Mexico and Japan. Interviews with eight bio artists and technologists, including Arne Hendriks, Mark Dion, Boo Chapple, Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Raphael Kim, provide a deeper insight into the ideas and methods of this new breed of creative practitioner.
