Biomodd [ZKM7]

Shelter (2015) is an installation about the survival and the safe space imaginaries of a transgender Latinx.

In Biomodd [ZKM7], computers and plants are merged into hybrid symbiotic installations. Exhibition focuses on the artistic use of technologies, and aims to open up views into the future.

Biomodd is a global series of art installations in which computer technology and ecology converge. Computer networks built from upcycled computer components are provided with living internal ecosystems. In a symbiotic exchange, plants and algae live alongside electronics and use the latter’s waste heat to thrive. Sensors and robotics provide additional interaction possibilities with the organisms.

SEAD (Space Ecologies Art and Design) has created more than 30 Biomod with significant contribution to art-science collaborative initiatives in the global South. SEAD was initiated in 2009 by Angelo Vermeulen (and Tine Holvoet), later joined by Diego Maranan and Pieter Steyaert.
