MOLDING THE SIGNIFIER
90% of the cells in our body do not have human DNA - we are a mere host, a topography, for billions of bacteria, protozoa and fungi. Much as we're convinced that our brains run the show, all the while, our microbiomes alter our drives, desires, and behaviors to support their own reproduction and evolution.
Molding the signifier is a time-based, hybrid, bio-cybernetic installation deploying an external biological agent to infiltrate and disrupt the body-mind ecosystems of virtual humans, resulting in states that we regular humans could perceive as mental illness.
Ivor Diosi will present the background research and development of his artwork, talk about his artistic research and approach in general and engage in an exchange and Q&A with interested visitors.
