Ingenious and Fearless Companions

High altitude bioprospecting

Ingenious and Fearless Companions, 2016


In a celebration of the blue skies research values of the HAB project Birmingham Open Media (BOM) exhibited the relics of the HAB device and exhibition. New artworks were commissioned from Anna, Alex and Kira. During a robot autopsy performance the crushed HAB device was carefully disassembled unfurling the knowldege locked in Ol's mind: the resulting pieces were suspended in the gallery. 

A space biohack brought together scientists to explore microbial samples captured within the gallery and explored space health. 

The exhibition toured to the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of the London Digital Design week.
