The Hanging Drop

Hanging drops below a microscope

The Hanging Drop is a tissue culture performance-experiment that aims to question the ways in which micro-agencies of cellular bodies and the distortion of microscopic environments can impact the form-making abilities of living materials. Artistic experiments were performed on human and non-human Mesenchymal Stem Cells.

This work was made in collaboration with scientific researcher Dr. Stuart Hodgetts (Assoc. Prof.) from The Spinal Cord Repair Laboratory, The School of Human Sciences at the University of Western Australia and the Perron Institute of Neurological and Translational Sciences, Perth, WA.
