Anna Dumitriu is an artist whose work blurs the boundaries between art and science with a strong interest in microbiology and the ethical issues raised by emerging technologies. Her installations, interventions and performances use a range of digital, biological and traditional media including live bacteria, robotics, interactive technologies, and textiles. See links to projects above.
Photographic documentation of “Normal Flora: Bioart Responses to Modernising Medical Microbiology” a major solo exhibition by Anna Dumitriu, which was recently exhibited at The Barn Gallery, St John’s College, University of Oxford, is now viewable online. The exhibition is available to tour. Please use the contact link (in pink) at the top of the page to get in touch.
The exhibition featured key works by Dumitriu including “The Communicating Bacteria Dress” stained with bacteria which has been ‘killed’ in the process of sending communication signals, a video mapped with timelapse footage of the process, and the “The MRSA Quilt” where each square of fabric is stained and patterned by the famous ‘superbug’ in interplay with natural and clinical antibiotics.
