 Are the nano-machines destructive, or constructive? Autonomous or controlled? Symbiotic or parasitic? Thinking or rote?

Description of the artwork Aphasia

Stepping into the dawn of the bio-tech era, this experimental motion work explores our bared physical scaffolding: Tiny nanoscopic, biotechnological machines—pulsing with energy, boring holes, tendrils slipping along—quietly move about their unknown business within a vast bodyscape of porous bone and watery ligament.

Locked into an ambiguous dance with the mechanical and technological ‘life’ that has become an increasingly central part of our cultural (and physiological) architecture - Aphasia slips through the membrane between organism and technology, where nanoforms quietly manipulate the electrical and biochemical impulses through which we sense (and make sense of) the worlds within and around us.
