Hand ornaments for non-verbal communication

Since I began my study into non-verbal communication, I am continually intrigued and surprised by how much we communicate with our bodies. I have since been fascinated with the field and am always soaking up information by just being more aware of the people around me. Of my own body communication, I am quite conscious. I found it interesting, however, that studies show we are more apt to draw conclusions about other people’s body language but ignore our own. My pieces attempt to call attention to this issue and seek viewers to consider the impact and meaning of their own posture.

The Body is a Big Place by Peta Clancy and Helen Pynor

The Body is a Big Place explores organ transplantation and the ambiguous thresholds between life and death, revealing the process of death as an extended durational moment, rather than an event that occurs at a single moment in time. This bio-art work is a large-scale immersive installation comprising a five-channel video projection, a fully functioning bio-sculptural heart-perfusion system, an undulating aqueous soundscape and a single-channel video work.

Intimate Science

The most recent manifestation of artists working at the intersection of art, science and technology demonstrates a distinctly autodidactic, heuristic approach to understanding the physical and natural world.

Don’t remember much from high school biology? What you do remember seems light-years behind where biology is today? Join us as we go through Albert’s Molecular Biology of the Cell textbook. Inspired by the BioCurious study group for the same, we're going to be working through the book, working together to improve our knowledge of biology!
