Telepresence and Bio Art: Networking Humans, Rabbits and Robots, Eduardo Kac Marilena Pateraki
Eduardo Kac’s work, writes Jim Elkins in his foreword to Telepresence & Bio Art, is six degrees of separation from every important issue of our time. Kac’s writings form an integral part of his artistic practice. The texts collected in Telepresence & Bio Art were written and published by Kac between 1991 and 2002. In this period the artist further developed his innovative telepresence art, expanding it into uncharted areas such interspecies communication and microchip implants, and explored unprecedented possibilities with his bio art, notably with an ongoing suite of transgenic works. One of his best known works is “GFP Bunny”, which addresses the multiple implications of creating a new animal and integrating it into society. Telepresence & Bio Art is a testament to Kac’s uniqueness as an artist-theorist.
