Come celebrate with us! And meet the Artists/Makers:
Trinley Dorje: Microcosm of The Earth Series.
Microcosms of the Earth is a bioart related series which displays cardiomyocytes (cardiac muscle cells) in a colourful and topographical nature. Each artwork is a unique depiction of Earth. The cardiomyocytes are distorted and blurred to give a surreal appearance to the artwork which represents the ever-shifting and changing tectonic plates and the effects climate change has on the environment.
Maggy Middleton: The Vexed Muddler.
By day a molecular biologist who studies bacterial evolution in the context of pathogenesis. By night they create digital and sculptural art and jewellery exploring microbiology, anatomy, physics, and other scientific realms. As the Vexed Muddler, their primary interest is in creating conversation pieces that surprise and delight, provoking curiosity and exploration.
Riko Okuna: Riot Works.
Simple design and carefully handcrafted pieces with beautiful weirdness. Metal + Wood.
Tosca Teran: Mycelial experimentations & bio-sonification.
Mycelium forms sculpted by hand and using 3D printed bio-filament.
Exploring acoustics, wearable insulating factors, and bio-remediation that incorporates bio-sonification.
