Nurit Bar-Shai: Objectivity (Detail)

In a live performance setting, BioArtist Nurit Bar-Shai and Colorado College Professor of Music Ofer Ben-Amots will collaborate with musicians to creat sound-generated topography for bacteria. During the performance, audio waves are transmitted through liquid agar medium as it solidifies. The shapes created through the sound experiments will affect the bacteria, creating different patterns that will emerge as they grow during the remainder of the Systems and Subversions exhibition.

This event is free and open to the public.
