Through a direct encounter of art with the identity of Daejeon as a city of science that has been constructed by both the infrastructure of Daedeok Science Complex and scientists' community, DMA tries to expand in its depth as a cultural city and makes an attempt to realize the zeitgeist of Art-Science convergence. </span></p>

In 2014, It dealt with the process and the result, focusing on the combination of brain science-based technology and art under the theme of 'brain'. Also in 2016, proposed a new vision towards universe through artist's creative mind and specific plan for practice based on scientific knowledge including astrophysics and planet, signal, dark matter. </span></p>

Based on direct collaboration with the infrastructure of the Daedeok Innopolis, we sought to realize the true spirit of the fusion of Science and Art. </span></p>

Bio refers to life, biology, and is a prefix attached to Biotechnology or health-related words. Based on Bioengineering technology, Bio Art, which combines artistic imagination, presents experimental work centered on s in the scientific field that were not covered by existing art. It is also a subversive art that has been transformed from the long history of artistic reproduction to the position of creators dealing with life itself. However, Bio Art not only presents Biotechnology, but also poses various questions in the aesthetic and social contexts related to it. Now, with the advancement of biotechnology, the dream of life extension has come to fruition, but there is also an ideological dilemma about bioethics as well as a debate about human identity. The purpose of this exhibition is to share a sense of responsibility that is infinitely extended to every creature through an expanded perspective on this life. Daejeon Biennale 2018 aims to be a place of discourse to introduce various horizons of Bio Art.</span></p>

Works that takes Bio Media as a subject is not just limited to life-related topics, rather it tends to strengthen artistic imagination. Biotechnology in such medical technology and genetic engineering become an aesthetic means of expression, and the subject of art expands its realm even to microorganism, bacteria, cell, DNA, etc.</span></p>

As the founding director of the Bio Art Lab at the School of Visual Arts in New York City that opened in 2011, Anker is also shaping how such art will develop in the future, by influencing the students drawn into its orbit. The issues confronted and techniques employed in Anker’s body of work resist summarization, but there is a decidedly art-historical perspective informing her decisions, as well as an urge to critique the claim on universal validity that culture has granted to science. </span></p>

He began his career as a cell biologist and is fluent navigating technical reports, research data and models from scientific journals. In 2010, he received a MacArthur Fellowship “Genius Grant”. Since 1995 he has been a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia. As an artist, he works as a translator, transforming abstract and complicated scientific concepts into vivid and meaningful visual journeys. His animations have exhibited at venues such as the Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva. </span></p>

Works created through a perspective of digital biology which organism and technology is fused together share a connection on narratives which stand on the foundation of artistic imagination. At its core, evolving artificial life plays essential role. This extends the scope of life to machine and artificial intelligence, not just within organism. With the wave of The Fourth Industrial Revolution, we wish to vision new ecosystem where carbon and silicon is in harmony.</span></p>

She is an assistant professor in DPXA & the Digital Futures program at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, Canada. She is a co-creator of the research project and immersive ecosystem “Artificial Nature”, exploring the expansion of media art towards ‘art-as-it-could-be’. It is an amalgam of play, research, and art, which raises novel and significant questions regarding the trans-disciplinary interpretation of both subjective beauty and ive truth in art and biology.</span></p>

This work is expressed through software design for creative coding, and immersive artworks of artificial ecosystems(both leveraging live system evolution through dynamic compilation. He is Assistant Professor in the School of Arts, Media, Performance and Design at York University, Toronto. Graham played a central role in the development of software systems and authoring content for the AlloSphere: a three storey spherical multi-user immersive instrument in the California Nano-Systems Institute. Graham is also a software developer for Cycling ’74, co-authoring the Gen extension for the widely-used media arts environment Max/MSP/Jitter. </span></p>

They also feature flexible movements that look like they are actually breathing, despite the use of metal materials such as mechanical components, motors and accessories. It is mainly produced in the form of organisms such as flowers and reptiles, and the title of the work is similar to the Latin scientific name based on athletic methods such as materials and power. The fictional stories in the work are expanding from the development of technology to the symbiosis of machines and humans.</span></p>

The artist notes that the principles of the digital world do not seem to be much different from the ones of our nature, suggesting hybrid life combined with computers as the main agent for our future workforce. He experiments on the identity of the artificial creature of how the highly intelligent being will behave when perceiving human being. </span></p>

In the past, it was a distant dream, but now it is closer to reality due to the development of biotechnology and advances in medical technology. This is part of the centuries-old challenge towards the realm of God to fight for death and artificial organ is introduced as a suggestion which will lead to life extension. As a desire to overcome imperfect body, cyborg body makes its appear which non-organism is conjoined such as bionic hands, artificial eyes, nano robot, etc. This newly designed body will influence the way we value our body and life and the identity of human being will also be redefined.</span></p>
