HANNAH MACLURE CENTRE - DUNDEE13 APRIL 2006
Curated by Rachel Mayeri, Soft Science is a collection of video-curiosities created by artists and scientists. Behind laboratory doors are some of the most astonishing “outsider” art projects around. Autopoetic bacteria, tethered flies, ebullient nanogears – these data gems create wonder, beauty – not to mention knowledge.
Artists have been mining science for years – in diverse experiments with icky substances, authority figures, and the ever-elusive idea of Reason. This unique program includes digital movies by biologists alongside contemporary video art. The film is number 4 in our experimental film and video series.
Featuring : Bug Girl by Su Rynard, The Bats by Jim Trainor and Stories form the Genome: An Animated History off Reproduction by Rachel Mayeri. Duration 65mins
