The work presented here has been created through an ongoing collaborative project between a medical researcher/clinician, and an artist, under the aegis of virocode. Virocode has been producing artwork since 1987 concentrated in the mediums of photography and videography. The work has been exhibited nationally at; MOMA in New York City, Hallwalls, Burchfield Penney,The Albright - Knox and CEPA Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, Diversworks Art Space in Houston and Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco and, Internationally in various European video festivals. The collaboration began by examining a biological metastructure of infection, mutation and reproduction as an essential force and adapting these vitalities for an art-organism.
virocode creates art that explores the theories, laws, and hypothesizes of science that hemorrhage into our culture, and coagulate on the individual. The work exposes scientific tenets to the chilly outside air and re-contextualizes them in the full spectrum of the narrative of everyday living.
