Bio Art is a contemporary art practice at the boundary of science and art. Bio artists David Goodsell, Guy Ben-Ary, Andre Brodyk, husband-and-wife duo Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr, to name a few, use living matter as either subject or medium to create images, sculptures, installations, videos and performances. Their works explore the relationship between humans and nature, and often question our concepts of the living and interconnected world around us. In this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) inspired exhibition, K-12 students present works that incorporate biological sciences with traditional artmaking. Their visual interpretation of the living world invites us to explore organisms as things that move and live.
