[ISEA2009] Artist Talk: Saoirse Higgins – The Grafting Parlour

Artist Statement

The Grafting Parlour is a fluid, growing, performative space between hybrid organisms and human worlds. The GfP is an emerging collective of artists and researchers who exchange and combine methodologies through thoughtful experimentation. Through collaborative enquiry and shared research, the GfP design communications models for interacting with different living organisms. This includes experiments with distant microorganisms and real time performances with varying views of the ecosystem, from the level of arctic bacteria, to the broad sky in Northern Finland.
