Art Meets Science

Warsaw's Leto Gallery is hosting Das Gespenst, an exhibition of installations and pictures by Robert B. Lisek. The cutting-edge project deals with so-called gene hacking and DNA self-replication. The artist uses the techniques of molecular biology to investigate the fundamental natural processes of self-replication or duplication and proliferation of structures. Research conducted at the Laboratory of Molecular Biology of the University of Wroc³aw has led him to develop a new strain of the E-coli 1XkZF bacteria, which spreads quickly in water.

Lisek is an artist, mathematician and founder of the Fundamental Research Lab. His many projects deal with alternative strategies in art and artificial intelligence. His work is difficult to categorize, including conceptual art, "software art" and meta-media. As a scientist, he specializes in graph theory and partially ordered sets. He is linked to the Department of Logics of the University of Wroc³aw and the Story Lab at the University of Texas. He has appeared at many international exhibitions, lectures, workshops and publications.
