 [micro]biologies I: the bacterial sublime // Workshop with Anna Dumitriu

30 November, 2014

On this practical and discussion-based workshop participants began to learn how to work safely with bacteria as an artistic medium using commonly available supplies. They started to develop a 'bacteriocentric' view of the world & understand the textile techniques used in the exhibition. Furthermore we discussed new advances in clinical microbiology, and learned more about the artworks in Dumitriu's solo retrospective "[micro]biologies 1: the bacterial sublime". The workshop also looked at issues of public engagement in science, ethics, and the nature of collaborative art/science practice.
