Art Event Overview:


    Common Flowers/White Out uses Suntory Flowers’ genetically modified blue carnation as a model organism. The goal of this project is to remove the genetic modification responsible for the blue colour and return the flower to its ‘original’ white state. This double genetic manipulation questions concepts of change, nature and manipulation and asks for a counter-model of our shared biofuture.

    This project is part of the international co-operation Exchange Emergences between the Japan Media Arts Festival (jp) and the Coded Cultures Festival (at).

    BCL is an artistic collaborative research framework.
