Synbio Life (Synthetic life in new media art)

Synthetic Life in New Media Art  ‘Synbio Life’ is focused on ‘synthetic biological life in new media art’ by using synthetic materials with biological data. This project includes three main parts: a computationally coded synthetic yeast video, an acrylics (a synthetic material; created during the Industrial Revolution) installation and the movement of gears (one of […]

To represent much better aesthetic gears, I decided to hang all gear sets and screens to the ceiling. In the exhibition space, it seemed impossible to make hooks to the ceiling. So I decided to install strong metal wires on a pipe to pipe. Also, I need one more screen layer (where should be placed […]

Synbio Life (final show)

As being confirmed the theme as the synthetic biology and yeast growing, I would like to put different symbols on each gear sets. The biggest gears 800*800mm, I put the symbol of the industrial period and industry itself using the factory symbol, bridge and a pickaxe. The middle size set 600*600mm refers to the more […]

To show the synthetic part, I used synthetic materials (acrylics) with gears. At the same time, I put the biological symbols on the gears. […]

Draft scheme of the final show

As soon as I decided to do projection mapping on my gears, few ideas came up in my brain about how can I shoot properly and more interesting way. My initial plan was making massive one gear set and put some symbols with gears and making rotate. In this case, the projector will be shot […]

Concept research (Synthetic Biology)

I was extremely confused that where can I head for my dissertation. I had too wide range and difficult to narrow down. Before the critique session, I prepared to write down everything what I thought about but after critique I decided to focus on the distance especially want to prove the psychological distance due to […]

I didn’t want to make the same mistake with last term WIP show. I decided to get help from the online tutorials […]
