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.

What to Expect When You Are Expecting to Die? is a workshop created as part of the HG/HL Makers Exchange in collaboration with Laura Rodriguez

Embracing the fear and uncertainty about what happens to life post-mortem, Laura Rodriguez explores her cultural traditions and practices and guides participants through Mesoamerican narratives about death by looking at the figure of the Alebrije, a spirit guide that is depicted as a hybrid creature originating from the Aztecs. Alebrije also play a large role in connections with Oaxacan and Mexican cultural connections and are often depicted as a companion for people that transcends both life and death. 

Rodriguez guided participants through the different stages of life post-mortem through the lens of these Mesoamerican narratives. 

In the second half of the workshop, Walsh led participants to explore potential technoscientific interpretations of the Alebrije by guiding participants through the process of tissue de-cellularization of “dead” biomaterials from both plants and animals. These de-cellularized figures were then reseeded with living cells in order to reanimate and create a new hybrid creature that in turn spawns new narratives about life and death.

What to Expect When You Are Expecting to Die? has been funded and supported by the European Creative Commission’s (Creative Europe) HG/HL Makers Exchange (MAX) and is supported by Fab Lab Barcelona, Makery, IAAC Barcelona, UPTEC, and the European Creative Hubs Network. The project has been mentored by Clara Davis and hosted by the Art & Science Centre at ITMO University and the Art.ITMO.Residency
