Speculative Biologies is showing new specimens in Albuquerque this November.
I stayed in Hotel Blue and installed the piece myself with the help of lovely Chelsea and beautiful Viviette, for about two 16 hrs days.
Despite the cold dry air and a quasi jet lag , the installation was complete well before the opening.
I’m attaching some images by Richard Levy, more to come….
I’ve given a talk on Speculative Biologies at IFTF this afternoon ( oct 18th 1pm)
I shared the session with IFTF’s distinguished fellow Kathi Vian
, futurist Jamais Caisco and bio-ethicist Sandra Soo-Jin Lee . It was a very interesting interchange, need to figure out how to embed flvs in keynote.
Team Kenan at the Kenan Insitutue for Ethics has been organizing What’s Good Art? competition since 2009.
This year Speculative Biologies won the first prize. It was a very good selection of artworks and I’m happy to have finally shown some of the installation at Duke .

I was in Portland for the past 5 days showing work at REED ARTS Week 2012. Although installing Speculative Biologies is always a pain in the neck, it was well worth it. I fell in love with the Reed Campus (or at least started a relationship) and had some time to explore downtown Portland ( most of which was Powell Bookstore).
Will post some pics from the installation once I’m done with GDC 2012.
Studio 27 << http://studio27.org/ >> had a screening of Speculative Biologies documentation video on feb 25th as part of the Big Muddy Film Festival.

Also a 9 sec movie where you can hear Captain Moore ( the discoverer of Pacific Trash Vortex) say :
“The ocean has turned into plastic soup. This is the soup”
Speculative Biologies was presented at PKN Raleigh on Dec 8th 2011.
