Confined Mutations

Confined mutations is a work in progress done in collaboration with the computer scientist Ben Murray. It explores the idea that mutation is a victim of its own success and must work within the confines of its ancestor mutations.

This artwork was first exhibited at the Crypt Gallery as part of Cryptic, Art and Science, from the 4th to the 7th of October.

Ophelia Sequenced 1 and 2, a collaboration with the BP Art Exchange at the Tate Gallery.

Ophelia Sequenced 1 and 2 have been developed as part of the BP Art Exchange programme at the Tate Britain, London.BP Art Exchange is a global learning project about international collaboration and exchange and I have been part of it since November 2015.
After getting inspired by Ophelia, by John Everett Millais, one of my favourite artworks from the Tate Britain Collection, I took a fragment of a metagenome sequence and I composed my first artwork Ophelia Sequenced 1 that was exhibited at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology last December 2015.
I did this by cutting the original artwork in strips and creating a system by which I could reassemble the artwork according to the metagenome sequence.

After the first artwork, I decided to make another piece, Ophelia Sequenced 2, using the same system but another fragment of a metagenome sequence; the objective was to see how the artworks differed from each other.

Dadaist, DNA Mutation and Recombination Poems

Dadaist, DNA Mutation and Recombination Poems is a workshop I created for the symposium What if…Why not…?: Creative Risk taking in Art, Design and Performance, part of the UAL Teaching Platform Series that took place last Monday. The event was about exploring contemporary issues in art and design education.
The workshop, framed under the name: Rules of Random, had to include randomness, risks and uncertainty to take the participants out of their creative comfort zone.

The participants had to sit around a table and use post-it notes, dice and pens as basic tools to start the workshop. 

The objective of the workshop is to deconstruct words according to a set of rules that emulate DNA recombination and mutation processes and remind of the Dadaist poems characteristics. 

Once the poem is finished, we revive the Cabaret Voltaire events in which Dadaist poems were read; we put the final result in a text speech software to read it aloud accurately.
