White Blood Cell War/Game

Selby
February 11th 2011

Blood Wars is an art-science installation that will pit white blood cells from two different people against each other in a "tournament" that aims to see which person has the strongest immune system.

The piece -- by artist Kathy High -- forms part of a new experimental exhibition between research laboratory SymbioticA and Dublin's Science Gallery, called Visceral. Visceral explores the boundaries between art and living systems, bringing together more than a decade of work developed through SymbioticA's art-science residency programme at The University of Western Australia. The aim is to show the tension between art and science and the cultural, economic and ethical implications of biosciences today.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
