Bioarama is a one-day event that illustrates new directions in art, science and technology by bringing together artists who explore notions of life, science and digital realities. By presenting these artists in the context of the Digital Research Unit Artist in Residence project Biorama will explore a rich territory in which multiple threads of investigation come together to manifest unique interpretations and unfamiliar possibilities. Biorama will take place in two stages with the Biorama hike in the morning and the Biorama sessions in the afternoon.
Biorama takes place on Friday 13th of July at the Bates Mill Studio in Huddersfield, UK

In an open forum at 7pm (EST) on ABC Island, Paris-based artist and architect Brad Kligerman – one of the first artists in Second Life to complete an in-world residency – will present his work, discuss ideas and answer participants’ questions.

In Between Space
Curator: Blair French
Anne Graham will construct eight rooms corresponding to a normal dwelling: a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a studio, a library, a living room, an office and a gallery. Everyday routines that occur while occupying these spaces will become the formal framework for the work. The actions and the objects in the spaces are intended to be more than functional: the spaces will become ‘social sculptures’. Quite intimate and familiar activities that occur will appear strange due to their displacement. By evoking associations, the spaces, actions and objects will become, in effect, ‘transitional objects or phenomena’. These rooms, in the words of Gordon Matta Clark, are intended to take “a normal situation and retranslate it into overlapping and multiple readings of conditions past and present”.
