Ecce Homology is an interactive installation that bridges art and science through the use of dynamic media, computer vision and computer graphics. Named after Friedrich Nietzsche’s Ecce Homo, a meditation on how one becomes what one is, the project explores human evolution by examining similarities – known as “homology” – between genes from human beings and a target organism, in this case the rice plant.
Ecce Homology is the result of a creative collaboration amongst artists and scientists. Contributor's areas of expertise include, bioinformatics, computer science, biology, performance, engineering, proteomics, and new media arts.
Ecce Homology exhibited at SIGGRAPH 2005, July 31 - August 4, 2005 at the Los Angeles Convention Center

OPEN CALL FOR PAPERS, POSTERS & PERFORMANCES
“How are bodies represented through technology? How is desire constructed through representation? What is the relationship of the body to self-awareness?” [Stone, Allucquère Rosanne The War of Desire and Technology at the Close of the Mechanical Age Cambridge, Mass. & London: MIT Press, 1995, p. 17]
INTIMACY Across Visceral and Digital Performance is a three-day (December 7-9) interdisciplinary programme of events made to illicit connectivity, induce interaction and provoke debate between makers, participants and witnesses of works that explicitly address proximity and hybridity in performance. It will feature workshops, seminars, performances, posters, and a 1-day symposium. INTIMACY will employ digital and live art practices as agents, aiming to further practical exploration of and vibrant discourse into notions of intimacy in contemporary performance. It is framed as a forum for artists, scholars, community workers, performers, cultural practitioners, researchers and creative thinkers.
INTIMACY will provide a platform for the discussion of live art/performance practices concerned with displaying intuitive, intimate and visceral relationships between artist and other. It will explore performance practices that engage in intimate encounters, raising issues around bodies of data and flesh; presence as aura and representation; desire as embodied condition and disembodied fantasy; the human and posthuman self. Confirmed contributors include: Johannes Birringer, Kira O’Reilly, Tracey Warr, Janis Jefferies, Amelia Jones, Dominic Johnson, Kelli Dipple, Paul Sermon.
INTIMACY will take place on the 7th, 8th and 9th December in and around Goldsmiths University of London, LABAN and The Albany (South London).

“In the Presence of the Body 2” is an exhibition and screening in conjunction with the BioArt Initiative of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) and Rensselaer’s Arts Department dedicated to art, biology and society.
Curator: Boryana Rossa
Monday, July 2nd, 6-8 pm, Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY
Wednesday, July 18th, 6-7 pm, Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS), Bruggeman Conference Center, Troy, NY
“In The Presence of The Body 2” Description:
In the Presence of the Body 2 is an exhibition event of the ground breaking BioArt Initiative for collaboration between the Department of Electronic Art and the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) at RPI that is already running in full speed. The initiative brings together cutting-edge biotechnology resources with its world-class electronic arts community. This show is an extension of the first exhibition, “In the Presence of the Body” that was meant to be an introduction to the field. This time a documentation of bio-art projects of established artists from USA, Australia, Russia and Bulgaria will be presented aiming to reach larger audience of the university and the local community. These works will engage the public with an educational and critical overview of some of the aspects of bio technological research and its current applications. A video projection in the lobby will support the exposition in the atrium.
Artists in the show include: BioKino (hosted by SymbioticA)—Guy Ben-Ary, Tanja Visocevic, Bruce Murphy (Australia), Julia Reodica (USA), Eduardo Kac (USA), Paul Vanouse (USA), Ultrafuturo--Boryana Rossa, Oleg Mavromatti, Katia Damianova, Anton Terziev (Bulgaria/Russia) and Where are the Dogs Running (Russia).
In conjunction with the exhibition, a screening of video works and documentaries about artists dealing with more provocative biological topics will be shown. These works are intended to provoke a debate about controversial issues that should be discussed in a democratic society. The topics presented in these works may be deemed offensive by certain people – discretion is advised.

About the BioArt Initiative: The BioArt Initiative is a collaborative research project between Rensselaer’s Arts Department and the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS). This project proposes to lay the foundation establishing RPI as a premiere institution for the synthesis of emerging biotechnological research and media art practice. The potential for creating a mutually supportive and critically engaged culture between art, engineering and science exists at RPI to a degree that is possible in only a select few universities worldwide.
