For millennia humans have been making our mark on the earth by selectively nurturing and depleting the natural world. More recently, through scientific innovation, society has moved towards the practice of biotechnologies—decoding and programming nature. Alongside traditional farming methods, we cultivate life in laboratories, synthesize genetic material and sow the seeds of ecosystems that are decidedly manufactured. Through video and interactive installations, the artists featured in this exhibition explore the fantastical possibilities as well as the upsetting implications of our legacy as world makers and propagators of all things possible.
