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 to suggest to us what it might be like to be technologically augmented humans..."

In "Art with Other Species" from PechaKucha Night Asheville Vol. 9, Egg Syntax explores the artistic, scientific, and all-together fascinating intersection of an 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.
