FARM CYBORGS – THE CENTER FOR GENOMIC GASTRONOMY (US/NO/IE)
RoboBees, virtual reality for chickens and interactive games for pigs - the Farm Cyborgs exhibit at FIELD TEST explores both augmented organisms on farms and the internet of living things.
ABOUT FIELD TEST
If anything, this exhibition raises more questions than it does answers. Will we make hay while the sun shines, or when the sensors say? Will visionaries and dreamers reinvent farms as on-demand food forests, skyscrapers, or even theme parks? What crops should we be cultivating now for a very different future: bacon-flavoured seaweed, heirloom potatoes, or fly meat steaks? FIELD TEST will bring you into dialogue with a range of artworks, products, farm hacks, robotics and microfarms that are real field tests: experiments at the boundaries of art, design, science and farming.
