This event will suggest the insight into the functioning of the biological ecosystem and the co-functioning of its elements. Trans-sensor objects will be analysed on the basis of scientific logics. Their phenomenological features will open up possibilities for artistic discourse. Interrelations among trans-sensor objects will be illustrated via micellium as the means of communication of all flora or via human microbiome which define human immune system and human interaction with environment.
This laboratory will take the format of summer school of Photography and Media Arts department of Vilnius Academy of Arts, and will involve facilitators Dario Martinelli from Kaunas University of Technology, Alvydas Lukys from Vilnius Academy of Arts, and Mindaugas Gapševičius from Weimar Bauhaus University.
