Biomateria + Contagious Matters is a vital materialist mixed media and digital installation of works on the themes of contagion theory and microethnography, haptic epistemologies/ communications and microecologies. Tristan Matheson’s work specifically navigates 3D cellular environments as a lived experience for viewers, that reflect communicative concepts found in social theory. These concepts are applied to pathogenic worlds recreated in large format, using cancer cells as actants through the use of time-lapse technology. WhiteFeather Hunter’s work specifically comments on the relationship between nonhuman agents (cell forms) and human technological and creative industry through the production of craft-based textile forms enculturated with mammalian tissue cells. The premise of the exhibition is to explore areas of overlap between technologies that manipulate bodies, life and material existence, as well as digital (new material) interpretations of those relationships.
