The intelligence and design of the body and its’ functions, systems and interrelationships - down to the smallest components of cells and DNA - reveal the complex interworking of a profoundly intelligent system designed with multiple highly organized systems including infrastructure, prioritization, electricity, communication, fuel, recycling and waste management, short and long term…

Culture Prime | Centre Pompidou | Amy Karle (video)

“From a young age, I was really cognizant of life and death and this fine balance between what it means to be alive, and this is both biological and medical, butt there is also this whole other realm of what it means to be alive that is beyond what we can measure… the real spiritual part… is about the mystery of life. The greatest scientists, the greatest philosophers, we don’t know these answers” – Amy Karle.

The Factory of Life Exhibition catalog under the direction of Marie-Ange Brayer and d’Olivier Zeitoun (Book)

Today, in the digital age, creation takes place in a new interaction with the field of life sciences, neurosciences and synthetic biology. It is matter itself that is being explored. Biotechnologies are now used as a medium by artists, designers and architects. If digital tools for generative simulation allow the re-creation of life, the question today is: how can we program life? Exhibition featuring work by Amy Karle. (translated)

Does 3D printing help advance artistic design?

new artists have emerged like Amy Karle. She uses additive manufacturing to examine what it means to be human and explore how one might merge with technology to take full advantage of it. She explained to us: “ Thanks to the use of new technologies, we can better understand the human being. The evolution of this relationship allows us to better understand Art . ”Karle uses what she sees as "exponential technologies", where she includes additive manufacturing technologies "  because they have the potential to create more organically, more like the way nature forms and develops ". For this artist, the use of new technologies allows her to…

The Shock of the New: Arts, Technology, and Making Sense of the Future

In times characterized by complexity, disruption and an unprecedented speed of change, uncertainty about the future is staring us in the face. While some relish the unknown, believing in the “art of the possible,” others struggle to embrace the future with confidence. Societal, economic and cultural divides present wildly different ideas about the future our collective humanity faces. Making sense of what lies ahead will become ever more important as global issues, such as climate change, and the ethics of technological advancements, such as artificial intelligence, transform daily life.

And The YouFab Award 2017 Goes To…

“The winners of the prestigious YouFab Global Creative Awards organized by Fabcafe have been announced. The grand prize was awarded to Regenerative Reliquary by American bioartist Amy Karle. The piece is both an artwork of refined esthetics and an illustration of technological developments in cell culture and 3D-printing living matter… a very sci-fi installation for growing human tissue inside a transparent bioreactor. Beyond the aesthetics of a luminous hand submerged in nurturing fluid, the concept could also be applied to personalized medical prosthetics, grown from the patient’s own body cells.”

Amy Karle: A Space In-Between Art and Science

Amy Karle's work is recorded in this Bio Art movement and does not settle for creating a meeting between human body and advanced technologies, for making them coexist but she is establishing them in unison in symbols of an enquiry we could qualify to be anthropological. The match between biotechnologies and the body are asking questions about our connection to our humanity. Her work is not only innovative because it suggests ideas which could be directly applied to body's reconstructive surgeries, but also because it can serve as a springboard in raising self-awareness.
