Residency Adam Zaretsky | December 15th to April 15th

PT// Enquanto na Cultivamos Cultura o meu tempo foi gasto de variadíssimas formas. Como de costume trabalhei em escrita criativa para publicações, dei apresentações globalmente, desenvolvi novos laboratórios e criei vários laboratórios de bioart online. Houve bastantes exposições a maioria à volta do FACTT 2021. Também passei bastante tempo com o meu filho, em aulas em casa sobre hidroponia, estratégia de investimento em criptomoedas, escultura em barro, pintura, desenho e a aprender Português. Cozinhamos comida fabulosa. Fomos surfar e visitamos megalíticos. Foi o que precisei durante este tempo crítico de contenção e isolamento.

O principal objetivo da minha residência foi a pesquisa e desenvolvimento para um projeto chamado: Mind THGAP – Open-Source ArtHacking the Human Germline. Esta série de laboratórios e aulas são hospedados pela Hackteria Bitwäscherei, Open Science Lab. Cristian Delgado, Marc Dusseiller e eu estamos a lançar uma call para colaboradores para o Congresso Mundial de Artes Tecnologicas de Reprodução. Da Hackteria Research Noode: ReproTech & Art / Germline Hacks and Designer Babies estamos a planear o Transgenic Human Genome Alternatives Project (THGAP), incluí construir um Generic Open-Source Plasmid for Human Arts (GOSPHA) e hospedar as sessões de desenvolvimento da Creative Germline Constructs Bank (CGCB). Quero agradecer à CultiCultu pelo apoio continuo no desenvolvimento de novas e maravilhosas abordagens de compreensão publica das questões que envolvem edição genética de linhas germinais e o efeito da estética no futuro da anatomia humana.

Aqui estão os títulos de dois capítulos dos livros que terminei durante a residência:
Human Germline gene editing is bioart: uma carta aberta para a Lulu e Nana, The Routledge Handbook of Art, Science & Amp; Technology Studies, Chapter 27, editados por Hannah Star Rogers, Megan K.Halpern, Dehlia Hannah e Kathryn de Ridder-Vignone, em fase de preparação para publicação este ano!

Anatomical BiTransversal Symmetry Axiswerks: Inter-Orificial Economics of Evolutionary Body Plan Development, The Art of the Absurd, ed. Charlotte Kent and Katherine Guinness (em revisão). Uma das minhas novas pinturas vai estar no libro como uma imagem figurative, uma re-leitura radical de: Pattern Distribution of Mechanosensory Skin Denticle Specializations in Blind Cave Fish.

Esta é uma lista dos Clean Rites Labs que criei para ensino à distância durante a minha residência:

Aseptic Creative Lab – Pressure Cooker Lab
Clean Pure Culture Rites_ Aseptic Creative Lab – Clean Rooms and Sterile Hoods Lab
Clean Personal Protective Rites: Aseptic Creative Lab – PPE Wearable Vacuum Lab
Clean Interpersonal Protective Rites: Aseptic Creative Lab – IPE Wearable Vacuums Lab
Clean Chef Feast: Designing the Aseptic Bioart Café, Inedible/Edible Optional Lab

ENG// While at Cultivamos Cultura I spent my time in truly varied ways. As is customary, I worked on creative writings for publication, gave presentations globally, developed new labs and held online bioart labs. There were several exhibitions as well mostly revolving around FACTT 2021. Also, I spent a lot of time with my son, home schooling on hydroponics, cryptocurrency investment strategy, sculpting in clay, painting, drawing and starting to learn Portuguese. We made some fabulous food. We went surfing and visited megaliths. It was what was needed during this critical time of constraint and isolation.

My major focus of my residency was research and development for a project called: Mind THGAP – Open-Source ArtHacking the Human Germline. This series of labs and lectures are hosted by Hackteria – Zentrum für Experimentelle Transdisziplinarität (Center for Experimental Transdisciplinariy), Bitwäscherei, Open Science Lab. Cristian Delgado, Marc Dusseiller and I are putting out a call for collaborators for the World Congress on New Reproductive Technology Arts. From Hackteria Research Node: ReproTech & Art / Germline Hacks and Designer Babies we are planning the Transgenic Human Genome Alternatives Project (THGAP), including constructing a Generic Open-Source Plasmid for Human Arts (GOSPHA) and holding Creative Germline Constructs Bank (CGCB) development sessions. I want to thank CultiCultu for continued support in the development of such fabulous novel approaches towards a public understanding of issues surrounding critical germline genetic editing and the effect of aesthetics on the future of human anatomy.
Here are the names of the two chapters for books that I completed during the residency:
Human germline gene editing is bioart: an open letter to Lulu and Nana, The Routledge Handbook of Art, Science & Technology Studies, Chapter 27, Edited by Hannah Star Rogers, Megan K. Halpern, Dehlia Hannah and Kathryn de Ridder-Vignone, in the pipeline for publication this year!

Anatomical BiTransversal Symmetry Axiswerks: Inter-Orificial Economics of Evolutionary Body Plan Development, The Art of the Absurd, ed. Charlotte Kent and Katherine Guinness (in review). One of my paintings will be in the book as a figure image, a radical rereading of: Pattern Distribution of Mechanosensory Skin Denticle Specializations in Blind Cave Fish.

This is a list of the Clean Rites Labs I developed for remote teaching during my residency:
Aseptic Creative Lab – Pressure Cooker Lab
Clean Pure Culture Rites_ Aseptic Creative Lab – Clean Rooms and Sterile Hoods Lab
Clean Personal Protective Rites: Aseptic Creative Lab – PPE Wearable Vacuum Lab
Clean Interpersonal Protective Rites: Aseptic Creative Lab – IPE Wearable Vacuums Lab
