Metabolic Vortex

-In collaboration with Carlos Monleon Gendall-
 
Today, the main narrative of synthetic biology articulates the possibilities of engineering tissue cells to create organisms in a test tube. This project focuses not only on engineered organisms but also on new metabolisms within the current ecosystem. How would we design aesthetic propositions for a world full of interwoven material transformations?
