Art as We Don’t Know It (Aalto ARTS Books, 2020) showcases art and research that has grown and flourished within the emerging field of bioart. The book has been edited by Erich Berger, Kasperi Mäki-Reinikka, KiraO’Reilly, and Helena Sederholm.
What worlds are revealed when we listen to alpacas, make photographs with yeast or use biosignals to generate autonomous virtual organisms? Bioart invites us to explore artistic practices at the intersection of art, science and society. This rapidly evolving field utilises the tools of life sciences to examine the materiality of life; the collision of human and nonhuman. Microbiology, virtual reality and robotics cross disciplinary boundaries to engage with arts as artists and scientists work together to challenge the ways in which we understand and observe the world. This book offers a stimulating and provocative exploration into worlds emerging, seen through art as we don’t know it – yet.
