Co-Corporeality Series 1 – E. feed/er


Interactive biomedial installation

The aim of the project is to develop a responsive interaction space for humans and living matter.

This biological 'performative architecture' responds to human behaviour through movement, growth, decay and interaction. A first prototype will be shown, which creates a platform for interaction between humans and microlife. By using a webcam and artificial intelligence, visitors can communicate non-verbally with the bacteria through human emotions.

Co-Corporeality addresses responsive spaces in the era of biomediality with the aim to establish an interaction between a human and a living material. We are specifically interested in developing a responsive environment within an architectural space that interacts, learns, grows and decays in relation to human presence and behaviour.
