“Collaboration Across the Three Domains”
Anna Dumitriu and Alex May
Anna Dumitriu and Alex May will discuss the creative process behind their project “ArchaeaBot: A Post Singularity and Post Climate Change Life-form” an underwater robotic installation that explores what ‘life’ might mean in the future. It is based on new research about archaea (one of the three domains of life, along with bacteria and eukaryotes) combined with the latest innovations in machine learning & AI. The new work is created in collaboration with Amanda Wilson from Imperial College and Professor Daniel Polani at the University of Hertfordshire. “ArchaeaBot” builds an extensive body of robotic, digital and bioart works by the artists working both individually and together, often embedded in science settings. They will also give an overview of the rest of their practice(s) and discuss their experience of art/science collaboration as well as some of the benefits.
