    Roland van Dierendonck (NL) is an artist with a training in Biology. In his practice, he investigates new ways to relate to, experience, and understand microorganisms. He is a PhD candidate at Lab4Living, Sheffield Hallam University, using touch and time to connect with microbial presence and movement. In his research, he aims to create experiential translations of post-anthropocentric philosophies, going beyond human exceptionalism and stepping into an entangled, enmeshed, symbiotic perspective on life across spatial and temporal scales. Roland has long been interested in bio-digital hybrid collaborations, including (slow) biotic game research, DNA data storage, and, currently, Chronomicroscopy. He was a resident at Coalesce, Center for the Biological Arts in Buffalo, exhibited in, among others, Stavanger, Vienna and London, taught at several art academies and led the BioHack Academy at Waag, Amsterdam. He is a fellow of the Global Bio Community Summit, organized annually at the MIT Media Lab.
