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.
