CRISPR INSTITUTE: Clustered Regularly Spaced Performative Research Institute
As part of the CalArts Residency at The REEF, I will be creating programming and opportunities for bringing science and art communities together through research, workshops and lab/studio visits. With my own practice being so research-oriented, I am interested in creating dialogues surrounding the future of art and science and where theses fields overlap. The CRISPR Institute is a continuation of Donna Harraway's ideology of the Chthululscene, which is an attempt at ideological entanglements of inter-species collaborations in the shadow of the end of the Anthropocene.
The CRISPR Institute will be working with these components as part of it's programming:
-An artist + scientist matchmaking service.
-Art workshops/ demos
-Curated nature excursions
