Lynn Hershman Leeson: Antibodies

Edited by Sabine Himmelsbach. Text by Rudolf Frieling, Thomas Huber.

At the center of this publication is artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson‘s (born 1941) installation The Infinity Engine, modeled after a genetics laboratory. Hershman Leeson, who divides her time between New York and San Francisco, has been examining the interplay of technology, media and identity since the 1960s, through the mediums of photography, film, video, objects and installations, computer-based art, software and performance.
Here, she shows how the boundaries between natural and artificial life are dissolving at an increasingly rapid pace in the age of synthetic biology, and explores how life itself can now be artificially shaped—from DNA manipulation, artificial human organs manufactured via 3D-bioprinting and antibody research to the use of DNA as a biological storage medium. Documenting these works through installation photographs of the artist’s exhibition at the HeK Basel, this volume also contains essays that offer both scientific context and insight into this trailblazing artist’s oeuvre and her current focus on biotechnology.
