THE GEN(H)OME PROJECT

Mon, 30.10.2006–Sun, 25.02.2007

MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, USA

Decoding the human genome and genetically modifying plants and animals present new challenges for artists, architects and designers: the borders between subject and object, between organic and inorganic material as well as artistic and virtual existence become increasingly fluid. “The Gen(h)ome Project” deals with paradigm shifts in artistic responses to science, above all biology and genetics.

Participants include Greg Lynn/FORM, Karl Chu, Servo, Marcos Novak, ocean D, Weathers-Sean Lally, Phillippe Rahm, Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau, and Open Source Architecture.
