InsideOut: Laboratory EcologiesInsideOut: Laboratory Ecologies Open Corridor Festival Jennifer Willet 2009
InsideOut: Laboratory Ecologies is a course of research and creative production centering around the notion of a ‘laboratory ecology.’
This installation, in collaboration with the Bioart: Contemporary Art and the Life Sciences, was built on the side of the busiest commercial boarder crossing highway between Canada and The USA. A portable laboratory was built in a tent trailer and housed class instruction in DNA extraction from kiwi fruit – as well as bacteria and yeast cultivation.
