Jennifer Willet from Windsor, Ontario will be at Open Space this summer engaged in, and encouraging others to engage in, a series of art/science experiments with her touring exhibition, Natural Science. This is an exciting opportunity for those of us interested in the field of BioArt. Willet’s work “explores notions of representation, the body, ecologies, and interspecies interrelations in the biotechnological field.”

Willet completed a Masters degree in Fine Arts at the University of Guelph before earning a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at Concordia University in 2009. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Visual Arts at the University of Windsor, where she founded INCUBATOR, Canada’s first art/science laboratory.

INCUBATOR “functions both as an apparatus in which environmental conditions can be controlled towards the assisted proliferation of life, but also as a site that supports the proliferation of new ideas – new artistic practices.”

Elaborating on an earlier work called BioARTCAMP, an art/science happening that took place in July 2011 in the Rocky Mountains, the Natural Science tour is a platform for Dr. Willet to present lab specimens, as well as video, photography and stories culled from “a variety of scientific, ecological, creative, and theoretical projects” completed during BioARTCAMP.
