Abstract

The article addresses a shift observable in recent artistic practices that relate to technology and the sciences, and the merger of technological and biological matter. This shift is described along a selection of the author’s artistic works from the 21st century, which are paralleled with Roy Ascott’s visionary writings from the last decades. This article examines a few aspects of bio + technological artistic practice: how experimental art, practices, and thinking address the networked world; how technology-infused thinking and technology-enabled connectivity have gradually become our incontrovertible reality; and, how it has impacted our perception of nature and the way we relate to the biological world.
