The Algae Society BioArt Design Lab: Exploring Multispecies Entanglements and Making Kin with Algae
By Juniper Harrower et al
The Algae Society BioArt Design Lab is a global collective of interdisciplinary researchers working together with algae as nonhuman international research partners. As a collaborative group of artists, scientists, and scholars, they experiment and coproduce with algae, seeking to highlight complex human interdependence and kinship with algal beings. Here the founding members introduce the Algae Society and share a collective collage of their evolving artistic works while reflecting on each researcher’s process, materiality, and aesthetic considerations.
