The Tissue Culture & Art in Collaboration with Stelarc
The Tissue Culture & Art Project explores the use of tissue technologies as a medium for artistic expression. The artists use tissue engineering techniques for the creation of Semi-Living entities. These are parts of complex organisms which are sustained alive, proliferate outside the body and are coerced to grow in predetermined shapes. These evocative objects are a tangible example of a new kind of object-being. TC&A are interested in the new discourses that surround issues of partial life.
