Andrés Burbano, Solen Kiratli DiCicco and Danny Bazo
in collaboration with Angus Forbes and Andrés Barragán

Andres Burbano, originally from Colombia, explores the interactions of science, art and technology in various capacities: as a researcher, as an individual artist and in collaborations with other artists and designers. Burbano's work ranges from documentary video (in both science and art), sound and telecommunication art to the exploration of algorithmic cinematic narratives. The broad spectrum of his work illustrates the importance, indeed, the prevalence, of interdisciplinary collaborative work in the field of digital art.

Andrés Barragán's work is centered on the anthropology of science and technology, particularly life sciences, and human genomics. He focus on three overlapping areas: bio-politics (race, eugenics); bio-citizenship (indigeneity); and bio-capital (intellectual property, bio-piracy). He is also interested in public understandings of science, particularly in aesthetic critiques/appropriations of biotechnology coming from artists and performers working on visual representations and imageries of DNA, genes, and emergent forms of life-worlds.
