Silk Bonds are Durable (Collaboration with The Art|Sci Collective)

download here the pdf to read the letter

"Silk Bonds Are Durable" consisted in the production of a short video and a letter about the artist experience in China, poetically and metaforically linking the idea of the historical Silk Road and the memory of synchronistic events related to her connection with the Art|Sci Collective.

From the work of artist Jason Fahrion, who raises silkworms in his garage on local mulberry leaves, to UCLA iGEM's quest for genetically modifying bacteria to produce fluorescent silk, a cabinet of curiosities at the Art|Sci Gallery weaves a story of silk, and of the biological factories that humans have carefully cultivated to manufacture it. 

Oppening reception: 2 Oct 2014
