Vital Forms

Biological Art, Architecture, and the Dependencies of Life
Autor:
Shows how the intersection of biotech, art, and architecture are transforming the world we live in

As living matter becomes more and more the domain of art and architecture, the life sciences are enabling a major cultural and aesthetic transformation. Vital Forms explores how the intersection of biology, art, and architecture has transformed these disciplines, offering heretofore unimagined possibilities.

Using numerous case studies, Jennifer Johung explores how art and architecture are reimagining life on a cellular and subcellular level. In the process, she maps the constantly evolving dependencies that exist between objects, bodies, and environments. From Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr's Tissue Culture and Art Project, which developed "semi-living worry dolls," to Patricia Piccinini's imagined Still Life with Stem Cells, each chapter pairs a branch of contemporary biological inquiry with the artists who are revolutionizing it.

Examining cutting-edge developments in biotechnological research--including tissue-engineering, stem cell science, regenerative medicine, and more--Vital Forms brings biological art and architecture into critical dialogue. Distinguished by its broad range and Johung's synthesizing talents, Vital Forms makes powerful observations about how the unfolding dependencies between all kinds of matter are becoming vital to life in our age of biotechnological manipulations.
