About Metabolic Mashines

The prominent Austrian bioartist Thomas Feuerstein works with the complicated transformations of matter that all living things are involved: Some of his sculptures contain living algae which is turned into alcohol and paint; others hold bacteria which turn paper into sugar that then feeds living brain cells in a bioreactor.

In 2018, Thomas Feuerstein exhibited his living sculptures at Medical Museion. This catalogue is a collection of essays about his works and his artistic practice. The essays examine these messy and rich works, unfolding them through philosophical speculation and historical context.
The texts are complemented by stunning photographs of Feuerstein’s artworks
