Art at the biological frontier

Abstract (in English): 

In this paper I will discuss three recent electronic art works in which biological processes or interfaces are investigated. These works are entitled "Teleporting an Unknown State" (1994/96), "A-positive" (1997), and "Time Capsule" (1997) The first work created a situation in which actual photosynthesis and growth of a living organism took place over the Internet. The second piece proposed a dialogical exchange between a human being and a robot through two intravenous hookups. The third approached the problem of wet interfaces and human hosting of digital technologies through the implantation of a memory microchip
