    Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


    The exhibition Outré: Encounters with non/living things showcases works from invited projects which were created fully or in part at the Biofilia Lab of Aalto University, where artists can cultivate inter-, cross-, trans-disciplinary research in dialogue with (citizen-) scientists and researchers from a range of fields.

    Slightly different than the other bioart projects involved in the exhibition, the Imitation Amber and Imitation Leopard Fur come from the Refashioning the Renaissance Team, using of organic matter and scientific methods to question the material and conceptual boundaries between original and fake, real and imitation, and to connect the past with present - or maybe vice-versa.
