“Transbiotics” Lecture no.1: “Temporal Stability Points”

On Wednesday, 16 June at 19:00 everyone is invited to attend “Transbiotics” lecture “Temporal Stability Points”: Ainārs Kamoliņš (LV), Andy Gracie (UK) and Terike Haapoja (FI).

Kamoliņš with his background in philosophy and an enduring interest in bioart will take a glance on different issues of bioart beginning with interactions between art and technology and looking at ethical aspects of practices in art that tend to push moral and physical boundaries in dealing with living organisms and their properties. By describing bioart in terms of temporal stability points Ainars Kamolins investigates both the unstable and transitory nature of bioart works as well as their relative independence of institutional biopolitical mechanisms therefore contributing even to the democratization of knowledge.

Later on, festival artist Andy Gracie will introduce his deep space research inspired work and his interest about space exploring technologies which allow us to reach the very edge of our solar system while Terike Haapoja will turn to relations between the boundaries of human and non-human environments which she has been exploring widely throughout her artworks.

The lecture takes place in the framework of XII Festival for New Media Culture “Art+Communication” and The 6th European Meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts “SLSA-EU 2010”.
