"Bioart and Bacteria: The Artwork of Anna Dumitriu" showcases work which blurs the boundaries between art and science with a strong interest in microbiology and the ethical issues raised by emerging technologies. Her installations, interventions and performances use a range of digital, biological and traditional media including live bacteria, altered historical objects and textiles. See here.
"The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis" takes the form of an artistic investigation into mankind’s strange relationship with the disease from early superstitions, through the development of antibiotics, to the latest research into whole genome sequencing of bacteria. Through juxtapositions between historical artefacts and stories woven by the artist around our changing beliefs it throws our idea of knowledge into question. See here.
