From the simulation of cells multiplying in a laboratory petri dish, to the creation of biocybernetic art objects functioning within the landscape, these artists affirm that our 21st century experience of nature has become forever transformed by the impact of science and technology. Our gardens at times appear fragile, positioned at the edge of industrial factories and highways, or enlisted in complex systems to generate our food supply. Yet new possibilities exist for the role of the machine within an ecosystem, through a fostering of symbiosis.

This exhibition is sponsored by the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Texas at Dallas, the University of Guanajuato, Salamanca, and the Bathhouse Cultural Center, Dallas, and is curated by Dr. Reynaldo Thompson, University of Guanajuato, Salamanca, and by Marilyn Waligore, Professor of Photography / Aesthetic Studies at UT Dallas. Artists in this exhibition include Jaime Bailleres, Twyla Bloxham, Gilberto Esparza, Bautista Vargas Gonzalo Gabriel, Mitzi Hallmark, Eric Keig, David Witherspoon, and Carlo Zinzi. Featuring artists from Guanajuato, Mexico, and Texas who affirm that our 21st century experience of nature has become forever transformed by the impact of science and technology.
