SymbioticA is an artistic research centre at the University of Western Australia’s School of Anatomy and Human Biology. The lab looks at biology and life sciences from an artistic point of view and has been used to develop a number of artistic projects linked to the field of bioart. SymbioticA offers a new means of artistic inquiry where artists actively use the tools and technologies of science, not just to comment about them but also to explore their possibilities.

In this conversation, Ionat Zurr and Oron Catts artists and researchers, will share their experience of running an interdisciplinary programme, the complex and rich relations between artistic and scientific research, the projects that emerged and their impact. They will give an overview on some of their artistic practice.
