Unruly Objects explores ways of capturing carbon using cyanobacteria encapsulated into a kind of ‘living latex’ to mitigate climate change. It also investigates the possibility of conserving antiquities through the enhancement of their microbiomes, the place of BioArt within museums, and the use of blockchain technologies to store conservation data. Project developed by Anna Dumitriu in collaboration with Simone Krings, Dr. Suzie Hingley-Wilson and Professor Joseph Keddie from the University of Surrey.
Join the Unruly Objects Lab to create your own tiny marble ‘unruly objects’ painted with 'living latex' and keep your tiny sculpture or leave it with us to become part of a new BioArt work.
Activity open to adults and children (5+ years) accompanied with an adult.

Additional collaboration with the Department of Antiquities and Works of Art University of West Attica. Supported by the National Biofilms Innovation Centre.
Part of Digital Design Weekend: https://www.vam.ac.uk/digitaldesign
