Marta Filipa Simões

Currently creating a body of work that has been developed as the outcome of the ongoing collaboration between the artist and astrobiologist Marta Filipa Simões, exploring her current scientific research on metal nanoparticles and the emergent field of astromycology. The collaboration has originated exciting and interesting projects as the creation of speculative materials developed with fungal resources, as well as photographic documentation, texts, experiments, digital images and has bridged the artist’s current project Terras Lux with notions of astrobiology, situating the project into a vision that connects the microscopic dimension of microorganisms on earth with the macrocosm, the vast universe and space.
