WEIRD SCIENCE, 2014
Kunsthalle Galapagos opens Weird Science, an exhibition that brings together seven artists who investigate science and technology. Their work draws from scientific theories or practices, appropriates or misuses scientific principals towards artistic means, or invent their own rational systems or scientific framework. Featuring work by Blake Carrington, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Thomas Dexter, Kysa Johnson, Hannah Mishin, Jeff Thompson, and Leah Wolff, these artists work across a variety of mediums including ceramic, installation, projection, sculpture and sound, and incorporate things as diverse as genetic material, The Whole Earth Catalog, custom built-software and invented code to create experiments that blend and push the boundaries of art and science.
