      "The walls have ears” is an environment where the surfaces and objects can be activated to show the history fragments collected in the walls of our city. Everything that is outside of it's limits presents itself in fluctuating levels and offers a bigger perception field, the empty like a percent of territory has as support the manifestations, adjustments and transformations that the human being practices to habit.

      Transformational – A Psychotransgenic Workshop on Making With Life

      Louise Mackenzie / United Kingdom

      [email protected]

      This talk presents initial responses from
      Transformational - a bio-art workshop that forms part of an ongoing research collaboration between Northumbria University and the Institute of Genetic Medicine at Newcastle University.  Tranformational introduces the concept of psychotransgenics: the situating of oneself physically in the position of transforming a thought into a living organism and the encounter of doing so.  The workshop enables participants to explore the potential of DNA as data storage device for text, music or image, create their own DNA storage designs for potential future use, choose whether they wish to physically store information within the body of a living organism and then reflect on their decision via a video diary.
