Tosca Terán aka Nanotopia
Project lead & art director
Tosca is working with artists, scientists, programmers and various fungi towards bringing this project to reality.
A Bioart related residency with the Coalesce Centre for Biological Art Tosca worked with SEM, Confocal and AFM microscopy captures to better inform the Holobiont and Symbiotic 3D final VR/AR production.
Sculpting 3D assets, collecting biodata, cultivating mycelium, composing world soundscape with various fungi, developing AR didactic information, installation layout, sensor circuitry, holobiont aesthetics.
Follow @symbiosis.dysbiosis & @mothantler on Instagram and watch the Symbiogenesis production unfold.
