Shiho Fukuhara & Georg Tremmel belong to the BCL artistic research framework that aims to explore the relations, congruences and différances of biological and cultural codecs through artistic interventions, social hacking and basic research.

BCL is interested in the relationship between art and science in general, and between media art and bio science in particular. The interest is not so much in the new possibilities of artistic expressions, that the emerging biotechnologies make possible, but rather in the social implications that the widespread adoption and application of biotechnology will create.

The research of the BCL is speculative and forward-looking, whereas the projects are firmly situated in the present social context and current climate. The projects aim not to be simply answers to real problems, but rather aim to be explorations of the context and systems behind the artistically and socially relevant issues.
