"Machinic Diatoms: 3 irrealities imagines the day when designer molecular constructors will permit unicellular machines, nano machines to co-inhabit and maintain the body. They may enter through our membranes and our pores and be both invited and uninvited guests, which find residence in our cells among the healthful organelles that, are part of the human cellular maintenance and survival ecosystem. Our bodies are already constructed, multicellular bio electrochemical agents with layers of communicating, competing systems both with and without our own DNA. The healthful bacteria that allow digestion of food and bacteria that hold at bay, harmful bacteria are part of complex intertwined ecologies that maintain and struggle to inhabit the interior and exterior of our bodies. The images of the constructed micro machines appear to be neither human nor biological but are rather speculative forms which envision engineered micro bio and machinic agents with properties to help maintain our natural cellular systems."



O americano Ken Rinaldo, criador de instalações multimédia interactivas que tendem a diluir as fronteiras entre o orgânico e o inorgânico, move-se na área de interseção da arte com a biologia há mais de três décadas, designadamente na robótica interactiva, arte biológica, vida artificia, comunicação inter-espécies e imagem digital.
Na presente obras devolve-nos a imagem de uma natureza manipulada que parece florescer em novas formas e cores de um universo virtual de requintada e rara beleza.
