Metabolic Vortex

Metabolic Vortex
-In collaboration with Clemens Winkler-

The main narrative of Synthetic Biology is that in which humanity benefits from the advances of genetic engineering and their application into everyday uses.
In this project we looked at how Synbio could generate not only new organisms but also new metabolisms and ecosystems by the interaction of these new beings.
Which narratives and metaphores -such as the fluidity and transformation of environments like the domestic, tradionally considered to be fixed- could be used in assembling a new materiality?
