Bioart: Biosemiotic Art and Affective Interaction Michal Brzezinski's main fascination is the way how the world stays in persistent communication process on each of levels of the so-called life. His art is discussing with life definition trying to expand it out of carbon based organisms and his art is kind of visualisation of this idea with the biosemiotics and informatics as background. Affect takes the main place in his direct-theory art process. You can find here embodied cognition and affective interactions, as well as direct cinema, material film and structural video.

Open Source Gendercodes: growing sex hormones in plants 0

Open Source Gendercodes: growing sex hormones in plants

Open Source Gendercodes (OSG) is a project focused on developing an open source platform for the production of sex hormones. The development of a transgenic plant that could allow “laypeople” to grow sex hormones would not only call into question the cultural and institutional frameworks that govern queer and trans bodies, it would also challenge the current system of pharmaceutical production. Can we imagine a communal system of pharmaceutical production in which biological materials are collectively owned?

My goal is to make sex hormones more accessible to queers, trans people, gender-hackers, and anyone who could benefit from more affordable access. This work is a protest against the pathologization of gender variation and a proposal for an alternative to the privatized pharmaceutical industry.
