Anna Dumitriu is an artist whose work blurs the boundaries between art and science with a strong interest in ethical issues raised by emerging technologies and their impact on society. As well as developing many installations and performances around these themes, she also has a strong curating practice which is also documented here. For her Bioart and Bacteria work see www.normalflora.co.uk and for The Institute of Unnnecessary Research see www.unnecessaryresearch.org.

Anna Dumitriu and Alex May were recently resident in The University of Hertfordshire’s Robot House. The artists spent a week in a house surrounded by research robots and documented their experiences here, making artworks in response to the situation. They gave an artists talk (open to the public) on 15th May at 1pm as part of the Computer Science Research Colloquium and a Robot House Event with an exhibition, performance and a chance to meet the robots, including KASPAR (above). Find out more here. Another residency and further experiments with the researchers are planned for late 2013.
