Lyndsey Walsh is an American artist, writer, and researcher based in Berlin, DE. Lyndsey has a Bachelor’s in Individualized Studies from New York University and a Master’s in Biological Arts with Distinction from SymbioticA Centre of Excellence in Biological Arts at the University of Western Australia. Lyndsey is enthralled by the ruptures in the corporeality of culture caused by technology. They are also fixated on the creatures that are born from these ruptures, as they embody both collective cultural fears and technologically mediated desires.

Lyndsey’s practice employs queer and intersectional feminist frameworks to question the tensions that can exist surrounding these creatures whose very existence resists cultural and anthropocentric binaries of human-non-human, diseased-healthy, and life-machine. Currently, Lyndsey is a visiting scholar and researcher with the Department of Experimental Biophysics at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, and they guest lecture at various institutions and universities. Their work has been exhibited globally and featured in art events and with institutions such as Frieze Art Week New York, the Humboldt Forum, the Ural Biennial, the Berlin Biennale, Transmediale/CTM, and more.

FOWL ACTIONS AT A DISTANCE




2023-2024

“Fowl Actions at a Distance” explores the rural cosmos, revealing how “the future is a created concept”. Inspired by Xiaowei Wang’s book “Blockchain Chicken Farm”, the project aims to question cultural perceptions of rural environments as “backwards” landscapes.

Using chickens as a starting place for unraveling the rural cosmos, “Fowl Actions at a Distance” focuses on how reality can be extended, transformed, and manipulated across scales, from rural and urban environments to quantumly entangled particles. “Fowl Actions at a Distance” sets out to bridge and rupture relations between humans, non-humans, and machines.

The work explores the use of XR technologies for remote sensing, the ethics of farming and animal husbandry, the impact of Smart Farming (or Digital Farming) on rural life and culture (especially in light of the current political situation of Germany's farmers' union and ongoing strikes), and the biophysical mechanisms involved in aviary magneto-sensing associated with cryptochrome photoreceptors and so-called "Quantum Navigation".

The research concept behind “Fowl Actions at a Distance” is a part of the Zeal Collective Residency Program in collaboration with Council+, funded by the European Union Program Erasmus+.


“Fowl Actions at a Distance” has been created in collaboration with the Department of Experimental Biophysics at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. Scientific collaborators: Arno Munhoven (PhD Student), Johannes Oppermann (PostDoc), and Enrico Schiewer (Doctoral Candidate), Chicken eggs surrogacy has also been graciously collaborative with the help of Johannes Oppermann and Enrico Schiewer.
