ACCADEMIA DEI SECRETI, 2015 (detail)
Glass, steel, slime, plastic tubes, pump, dimensions variable
Biochemical conception: Thomas Seppi

In the installation ACCADEMIA DEI SECRETI, large amounts of transparent slime are mixed with the pure water prepared in the gate and pumped through huge glass vessels. By contrast to the hermetically sealed bioreactors, here the boundaries between inside and outside seem to dissolve. The viscous slime passes through every available opening, runs along the glass both inside and out, and finally drips into a large trough before being fed back into the pipe system.
