This is the first entry in a series of blog posts by Mayra Citlalli Rojo Gómez, who is currently doing an online residency as part of our Biofriction project.
Mayra is an artist, interdisciplinary researcher, and curator in visual arts and body discourses (gender and race). She developed postdoctoral research about bacterial cellulose. Currently, she works with critical associations between symbiosis, evolution-teratology, and diffuse identities, which interrogate the limits between the human and the non-human in vegetal and bacterial universes.

The residency is part of Biofriction, a European collaboration project committed to supporting bioart and biohacking practices. Biofriction project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. biofriction.org
