Abstract

Blck Vlvt is a research process in which an artist and scientists seek to assist the Aronia m. Barao b. plant in commenting on the painting “Snow Storm - Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth” (exh. 1842) by J.M.W. Turner. Artistic practice collides with solar cell science, plant lighting technology and synthetic biology. Gradually a biotope evolves with a cyclical, leaky process of thinking and making that embraces serendipitous opening of unexpected scientific and artistic avenues and works. The transdisciplinary enquiry is galvanized by a common tangible goal: A prototype for a “living” interspecies Baroa b. based solar cell mimicking and morphing “Snow Storm”.
