Biobased Art and Design

The research group Biobased Art and Design capitalises on the role of artistic practice in unlocking the unique potentials of living organisms, such as algae, fungi, plants and bacteria, for everyday materials and communicating these to a broader public. In doing so, the group aims to instigate and accelerate our widespread understanding, further development and usage of such biological materials. The researchers examine material qualities, addressing their roles and influences. Such qualities are deeply rooted in an organisms character and behaviour, and shape our experiences of materials made with living organisms. Researchers adopt diverse technical and creative methods taking artists, designers and scientists as equal and active partners in the material creation
