The video documents an experimental project of Bio Algoritmic Politics, speculation on future genes that live and grow in a symbiotic exchange with the market (its rules are dictated by a genetic algorithm). The genetic algorithm pictures the rules of these proto-societies as genes that multiply proportionally to the market. Both live one in function of the other.
This project has been produced as part of the Bio Arts and Design Award 2019 and it’s currently exhibited at MU Artspace in Eindhoven, as part of the Polarities show (29th of November 2019 to March 1st 2020).
