PhyChip exhibition – Chroma+Phy in Slovenia and Austria

Theresa Schubert (Bauhaus-Universit├Ąt Weimar / PhyChip) exhibited her work Chroma+Phy at When Worlds Collide, an international festival of platform art, technology and science in Maribor Slovenia November 6th – 25th 2013. Furthermore it is on display until 31-07-2014 at the Ars Electronica Center Linz (Museum of the Future), Austria, as part of the exhibition Genesis organised by the Studiolab Initiative.


Chroma+Phy is a speculative design for a living wearable that combines the protoplasmic structure of the amoeboid acellular organism Physarum polycephalum and hte chromatophores of the reptile Chameleon. The underpinning idea is that in a future far away or close, on plant earth or in outer space, humans will need some tools to help them in their social life and day-to-day routine. Chroma+Phy is alos addressing the issue of privacy. We are moving from a society of omnipresence of digital information to a society where biotechnology will directly “access” our body to retrieve its information. The work Chroma+Phy is a speculation about a living hybrid sensor that enhances function for humans and connects it with the environment.
