What constitutes life, what counts a sentient being, and who gets to determine what lives are saved, punished, exploited and destroyed?

Step into Morbis Artis: Diseases of the Arts and you will find a cabinet of curiosities laden with antique eyeballs and glass fish augmented with human eyes, a strange and grotesque bio-art work of bruised skin and a $3 million particle accelerator generated by a banana.

The interactive artworks explore the metaphor of disease and the relationship between art and science. What constitutes life, what counts a sentient being, and who gets to determine what lives are saved, punished, exploited and destroyed? Explore the somewhat disturbing and deliciously exquisite world of Morbis Artis.
