Art meets science in an ambitious installation from WA’s Nathan Thompson, Guy Ben-Ary and Sebastian Diecke that sees a drop of blood converted into a living animated entity inside a custom-built incubator.

Bricolage is a new work that centres around the process of growing artistic, microscopic, autonomous and living biological robots that during their exhibition self-assemble into a biobot or a living kinetic sculpture large enough to be seen with the naked eye.

Introduced by a visual text by acclaimed WA writer Josephine Wilson, this intriguing and thought-provoking exhibition invites us to consider the human body in a world beyond its control.

Bricolage is presented in association with Perth Festival and SymboitoicA.
