Bioart and Bacteria – The Artwork of Anna Dumitriu
If your an art science fan then one of the most prolific artists in the UK is Anna Dumitriu focusing on BioArt. The thing I like about her art is that is doesn’t just use Science as a topic but she really knows her science, pulls it apart, builds new tools for science discovery, pushes it and builds new dialogue. I saw her do a talk at Cranfield University about how she was using bacteria as a source of communication and remember being memorised and thinking I would love do that. I managed to trouble her for a conversation at Science Arts day in Leeds, Anna is fascinating. Also check out an arts organisation ‘The Institute of Unnecessary Research…..She is an Professor/Wizard of Arts BioScience.
