In Search of Chemozoa is a new moving image commission by artist duo boredomresearch. Developed during residencies at the Arizona Cancer Evolution Center (USA) and at Aspex, the multi-channel video responds to new therapeutic approaches centred on managing rather than curing cancer.
In Search of Chemozoa is a poetic response to world leading research studying cancer across species. Combining computer animation with film from inside laboratories and in natural environments, boredomresearch present ideas for an alternative cultural understanding of cancer. Informed by interviews with over 20 scientists, the film presents an original view of the relationship between the latest cancer research and developing theories about biomedical and ecological health.
