Art With Other Species

BY EGG SYNTAX
@ VOL 9 ON OCT 09, 2015

"One of the themes that keeps drawing me back to this sorta work is that of technological augmentation. Some interspecies collaboration can begin suggest to us what it might be like to be technologically augmented humans by exploring what it might mean to be, for example, technologically augmented fish. In this piece, beta fish are giving the ability to move freely around a space on land, using these motorized pedestals that they can control. It gives them a new mode of interaction."

In Art with Other Species from PechaKucha Night Asheville Vol. 9, Egg Syntax explores the artistic, scientific, and all-together fascinating intersection of a art crossbred with nature. He surveys examples, themes and implications of interspecies art from the simplest notions of using another species as a medium, to that of collaboration with another species. Prepare to have your mind blown. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, December 9th, 2015.

  • Jasper Adams

    Jasper is one half of NineBar Creative, a small design creative in Asheville focusing on web, graphic, and small-scale industrial design. He also runs the beverage program at Table & The Imperial Life, and finds plenty of time to develop tasty concoctions of his own. An unhealthy amount of Lego time paired with shockingly-free access to art supplies and entirely too much NPR meant this nerdy little child knew from an early age he wanted to study architecture. Someone in the admissions department at the University of Virginia spilled coffee and let Jasper into the School of Architecture. Four years later, The University spit out an enlightened and marginally more mature architect-in-training. Jasper amplified his design aesthetic at school by dabbling in architectural history, preservation and urban planning courses, all aside his architecture studios. His work is spatial, textured and tactile and his design process typically involves an ample freedom of movement between digital and manual media. He pushes NineBar Creative to foray into industrial and product design. Jasper developed an interest in and an affinity for classic cocktails and spirits about 5 years ago, and he’s sometimes just as often behind the stick as he is in front of the computer. Outside of the office, Jasper is most likely at home cooking, riding his bike, or looking for bottles of antique spirits with which to further clutter his bar, er...house (much to the chagrin of his girlfriend).
