Still from In Search of Chemozoa by boredomresearch, 2020.
From the textbooks of ancient Greek physician Hippocrates to current research on the coronavirus pandemic, we know that human health is impacted by environmental factors. boredomresearch have collaborated with leading science institutions over the past decade to create dynamic video installations that explore how large scale environmental changes have altered disease transmission. In 2019 they worked with the researchers at the Arizona Cancer Evolution Center at the ASU Biodesign Institute on radically new ways of thinking about cancer treatment. This exhibition is the US premiere of the resulting video installation, 'In Search of Chemozoa', along with three striking earlier works based upon animated robots navigating Venice’s polluted canals, flight patterns of mosquitos carrying malaria and intertidal snails adjusting to changed coastal conditions.
