Ocular Revision at the Albright Knox by Paul Vanouse

…where I’m talking about everything biotech in art, including cell cultures, bacterial colonies, DNA manipulation in E. coli bacteria, implanted arm-ears and much much more. (That’s Paul Vanouse’s DNA piece Ocular Revision installed at the Albright Knox in 2010, above. More about that here.)

His show is up at the Beall Center in Irvine through May 4.
