How to Make Art in a Toxic Environment / Adam Brown
Adam Brown is an internationally recognised conceptual artist whose work incorporates living and biological systems, robotics, molecular chemistry and emerging technologies.
Alchemy even proved an appropriate model of reference for his work when his award winning The Great Work of the Metal Lover succeeded in using bacteria to turn soluble gold chloride - naturally occurring in the world's seawater - into usable 24-carat gold.
His ongoing research is concerned with questioning our ability to engineer and control nature. Abandon Normal Devices is excited to welcome him to the UK for a special, one-off workshop, which will open up some of life's universal questions through scientific experimentation.
