The SVA Bio Art Lab houses microscopes for photo and video; skeletons; specimen and slide collections; a herbarium; and an aquarium, as well as a library. Each student resident is awarded a private studio space. The residency culminates in a public exhibition.
Demonstrations include microscopy, plant tissue engineering, molecular cuisine and the production of micro ecosystems. Students may work in any media, including the performing arts.
The residency will be led by artist Suzanne Anker, Chair of the BFA Fine Arts Department at SVA, and Joseph DeGiorgis, marine biologist. Faculty and visiting speakers will include artists, scientists and museum professionals such as Giovanni Frazzetto, Francois-Joseph Lapointe and Nurit Bar-Shai.
