Stephen Fortune is an artist, journalist and regular contributor to Dazed and Confused. His tumblr Wetware Ontologies is a must-view compendium of technology’s interaction with biology.
Specially for AND Festival 2013, Stephen scoured the archives, trawled the net and stayed up far too late in order to curate an intriguing collection which showcases living matter in a variety of mediations. Life on Film spanned everything from microcinematography to supercomputer simulations, charting the ongoing complexities – as well as the possibilities and limits – of representing ‘life’.
