Jardín de la Distopía (Dystopia Garden) is a software art project that explored the perpetual destruction and regeneration of a metaphorical microbial population. A computer code simulated the dynamics of a thriving population whenever harmful agents appear within the system.
The project had two main stages. At first, it was shared as a video installation. Two years later, we were invited by the National Endowment for the Arts to present the work at the ZONA MACO Art Fair in Mexico City. We executed a live-act bio art performance of the project.
