Tosca Terán aka Nanotopia 

Interdisciplinary artist

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.

Artists, Developers, Scientists collaborating & working with Tosca on this project include: 

Brendan Lehman aka Neurochems

Neuroscientist/Biodata coder 

Brendan is assisting with Technical Design; working in Unity to connect the biodata and audio hardware with meaningful in-experience interaction. This involves handling the OpenBCI hardware, interfacing this data stream with Unity, and utilising the data to enable interactive visual and auditory effects.
