WELCOME TO ANIMA FACTURA: AN ODE TO THE LIFE TO BE CREATED.

anima factura started out as a quest to unravel hidden potential within the most unique organisms. We discovered extraordinary abilities and named them superpowers. These superpowers have the potential to change our world drastically. By the use of synthetic biology, properties of various organisms can be combined or altered, resulting in new lifeforms that will make and shape our world. We translated these superpowers into an artistic form; to something that is accessible and understandable to anyone, not just the well-informed scientists. What emerged from this translation was our video installation anima factura. It exists next to our online database, in which it finds it’s base.

With this online database and our video installation, we try to contribute to the open source development of scientific fields such as synthetic biology. As we highly value this, we encourage our audience to join our project and contribute to the database. We hope that you too will be inspired and add a new organism to the database!
