QUARANTINE: Novel Explorations in BioArt was an exhibition organized by Faith Wilding & Andrew Yang, after an intensive seminar integrating cyberfeminist engagements in modern culture with bioengineering experiments in laboratory science. My project traded its technical complexity for overlooked insightfulness, which involved growing vitamin-rich and highly nutritious edibles (yellow oyster mushrooms) from free newsprint available citywide (cellulose) and water. A Transgenic Feast followed the opening that included homemade treats that contained exogenous genes delivered by yeast plasmid vectors.
