Re:Dada exhibition open

For Re:Dada, Jonathon Keats remixes both Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven's 1917 work, God, and his own, by mass-producing God as a dietary supplement that can be ingested by humans. Spirulina, a species of cyanobacteria routinely consumed as a nutrient, is grown in a customized bioreactor, where it is exposed to a proprietary mix of pre-recorded worship, inducing divine mutations to eventually dominate the spirulina population.

 

At the end of the exhibition, the spirulina will be funneled into bottles and given away to swissnex visitors who want to take God as a dietary supplement. Ideally they will not only try the new dietary supplement, but will recommend deified spirulina to friends,
