White Aphroid Awards 2016

The White Aphroid Award 2016 in the category of artistic achievement

Špela Petrič (Slovenia)

In a poetic and at the same time concrete (biologically tested and approved) way this work, entitled Phytoteratology, assumes the idea of a symbiotic way of living, between humans and plants, animals and humans, humans and humans. She unveils the hidden life of biological processes inside a temporary lab, making them visible via an analogue presentation (images reflected on the walls through glass lenses) in order to understand the relationships occurring on micro-levels, out of the reach of our sight.

What is the path electrons travel, and what kind of effect is created when we direct electrons to the right positions? At this workshop participants learnt about these positions, their logical connections, and discuss which of them are optimum. What do they measure, what effects do they produce, and what is the purpose of using them at all?
Zavod 404 (Institute 404) is the first youth technology & research center in Slovenia and was founded with the aim of communicating technical skills to the young and inspiring them to pursue science, research, and entrepreneurship. In their workshops teams are absorbed in observing the emerging prototype, creating a new community where ideas are appreciated and true talents can evolve.
