Julia Reodica currently resides in the United States. She is an art/science educator, a practicing artist, and a Registered Nurse in the critical care setting. Her on-going work includes traditional art practices and the use of laboratory tools or biotechnology. The art work is intended to express social commentary and encourage public inquiry. Living art work addresses issues of sustained life in novel environments. Science-related work based on utilizing living systems for exhibition was developed through work in art/science museums and institutions in the U.S. and internationally. In various publications and symposiums, her views on innovative mammalian tissue sculpting and the social impact of scientific research have raised new ethical and aesthetic questions about the new "body" of art.

Brooke Singer launched a new workshop, demolition drugstore!, at last month's Conflux festival. The workshop is part of a larger project, undesigning.org.

FREE POSTERS from the workshop are now available at the Eybeam bookstore. Grab one while supplies last! This poster, titled Our Chemically Modified Organisms (CMOs), describes the numerous and sometimes unusual transformations that are taking place within a variety organisms due to synthetic chemical production and pollution.

Greens growing in a suspended hydroponic Window Farm

We are creating several different designs for suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield light-augmented window farms using low-impact or recycled local materials. These prototype window farms, to be located in high-profile windows throughout the city, are intended to inspire other New Yorkers to design and implement their own window farms. Signs in the windowfarms will challenge New Yorker to create their own and direct them to a website where we can all share photos, plans, designs, and information. Together, we will derive viable methods for growing food under the local conditions of our own homes in a way that is efficient enough for New Yorkers' lives.

Workshop participants learned the fundamentals of animal anatomy, dissection and culturing that are used to investigate specimens. The workshop was held in an open forum setting with orientation to the history of artistic practice in the scientific field. It was part of the Eyebeam Digital Day Camp Series for 2006.  At the conclusion of each week of DDC, the projects from the classes were displayed in a 'growing' 3-week long exhibition alongside work from the artists teaching the DDC workshops.
