    The Finnish Society of Bioart cordially invites to an artist lecture  by Paul Vanouse :

    May 21st, 18:45, The House of Science and Letters, room 312, Kirkkokatu 6, Kruunuhaka, Helsinki.

    Paul Vanouse is currently a visiting researcher at Aalto University’s Biofilia – Base for Biological Arts.

    Vanouse has over two decades of experience in working with emerging media forms and his works have exhibited in over 20 countries and across the United States.

    Interdisciplinarity and impassioned amateurism guide his art practice. For the past decade, Vanouse has been specifically concerned with forcing the arcane codes of scientific communication into a broader cultural language. His recent projects, “Latent Figure Protocol”, “Ocular Revision” and “Suspect Inversion Center” use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting. Vanouse is a Professor of Visual Studies at the University at Buffalo, NY. http://www.paulvanouse.com/

    In Helsinki, where he is hosted by HIAP, Vanouse has been working on a new project involving the human epidermal micro-biome, specifically those bacteria that process sweat.
