On this practical and theoretical workshop with Anna Dumitriu, participants will begin to learn how to work safely with bacteria as an artistic medium using commonly available supplies. They will start to develop a bacteriocentric view of the world, understand the textile techniques used in the exhibition and discuss the new advances in clinical microbiology being investigated by the Modernising Medical Microbiology Project. The workshop will also look at other key artists in the field of bioart, issues of public engagement in science, ethics, and the nature of collaborative art/science practice.
This coincides with the exhibition Normal Flora: Bioart Responses to Modernising Medical Microbiology.
