ArchiBio

DNA is the best software.

The ArchiBio project discovers phenomena that surround us everywhere, yet they remain invisible. The growth of bacteria, fungi and plants, life of an ant colony – the beauty of these phenomena escapes our attention, because they exist on a different scale or in a different time beyond our perception.

ArchiBio videomapping unfolds the beauty of microscopic worlds enlarged to a giant size in the public space. It poses a question whether the relationship between nature and technology really is antagonistic, or whether the man-made technologies represent just another branch on the evolutionary tree. It is fascinating that all life forms around us share the same operating system with us, humans, DNA. What will happen once our technologies learn how to cooperate with it? Will genetic modification bring destruction or progress?

The project is being created especially for the Prague festival of light, Signal Festival.

The preparatory work included creative, technology and scientific research. The author used 3D scanning technologies, 3D printers and computer-controlled cutting machines to make special cultivation pots of the shape of which will copy selected architecture.
