Collaboration between the Tissue Culture & Art Project and Adam Zaretsky (U.S). Involved exposing the 'Pig Wings’ being created by the Tissue, Culture & Art Project to music, in order to see how musical vibrations would impact upon the tissue mutations taking place in that art work.
Created by the SymbioticA Research Group, Gil Wienberg (US) and Matt Richards (US) in collaboration with US scientists Steve M Potter, Tom DeMarse & Alexander Shkolnik. Installation project in which electric signals from the activity of cultured neurons are communicated to a robotic arm which makes a drawing. The first stage of this project was titled Fish & Chips (2001).
Created by the SymbioticA research group in collaboration with US researchers Steve M Potter, Tom DeMarse and Alexander Shkolnik. Involved using the electrical activity of fish neurons to control a robotic arm which producing a drawing and sound. The installation consisted of a laboratory/studio style set-up, prototypes and project documentation. In 2002 this project evolved into the artwork 'Meart – the semi living artist’.
Developed as part of the artists’ residency at the Tissue Engineering and Organ Fabrication Laboratory, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, USA. Developed further in SymbioticA, UWA. The work involved using tissue engineering and stem cell technologies to grow pig bone tissue in the shape of three different sets of wings.
7 'doll’ sculptures crafted from degradable polymers and surgical sutures. Sterilised and seeded with different kind of cells (skin, muscle and bone tissue), which cause the polymer to degrade as they grow (therefore the dolls constantly evolve). Tissue, Culture & Art Project in collaboration with SymbioticA and the Tissue Engineering and Organ Fabrication Laboratory, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, USA.
The Tissue Culture & Art Project (TC&A) was set to explore the use of tissue technologies as a medium for artistic expression …
