MANNA MACHINE II, 2005

exhibition view Focus Utopia, Galerie Lelong, Zurich 2005

The installation MANNA MACHINE consist of a bioreactor in which algae (Chlorella vulgaris)
are grown. The biomass accumulating is filtered to form cakes. The cakes then serve as feed for the Drosophila culture and as the basis for pigment. The flies thus bred become pixels in the series of portraits entitled SOCIAL EMERGENCE.
