Out of a house walked a plant (aka Plantibodies)
Time & Location
About the event
An immersive mixed media performance and installation that questions the ethics and the consequences of exploiting plants as antibody factories. Over 30 years ago, plants were first considered as a potential hosts for producing antibodies and the word ‘plantibody’ emerged. A plantibody is an antibody that is produced by plants that have been genetically engineered with animal or human DNA encoding a specific human antibody known to neutralize a particular pathogen or toxin. This project is immersive, evolving and changing. You might notice "laborants" testing, adding, subtracting, fusing, building the site. What you see today will change tomorrow.
Artists - Annie Murdock, Bryan Brown, Johanna Korndorfer and Olya Petrakova
