Meet Pei-Ying Lin

Discuss your work, ideas and obstacles with the artist

9 Mar 2018

A new breed of artists is on the rise. They work with living matter, nature and have a strong emphasis in biology and life sciences. In this emerging field of Bio-Art and Design there’s need for extensive collaboration. Not only between the different disciplines involved, but also between generations. That's why we invited dedicated artist Pei-Ying Lin to become our artist-in-residence. This means that she will be a regular attendee of the Mediamatic Biotoop, with scheduled consults for you to attend to. Exchange your ideas and sign up for a one on one with Pei-Ying Lin.
