The book presents art projects that resulted from unconventional explorations explorations of space, matter and sound, curious experiments with living substrates and their creative translations into sensorial experiences developed by established and emerging artists. Using electronic and digital art, bioart, sculpture and installations, sound and performance, the authors are removing boundaries between natural and artificial, real and imaginary, science and culture. The book aims to hybridize art projects and transdisciplinary approaches to a contemporary art practice by discovering a new understanding of media and adopting innovative approaches to materials in the Anthropocene.
