My work explores the possibilities modern biology offers to artists. Thus, I have been developing the use of biology and biotechnology as new art media, conducting my practice in research laboratories that are my art studio. I have been trying not only to portrait the recent advances of biological sciences, but to incorporate biological material as a way to convey an artistic discourse not possible with a different medium: DNA, proteins and cells offer an opportunity to explore novel ways of representation and communication.
