My name is Ippolit Markelov, I`m a science artist from Russia.
Since completing my PhD in 2012, I have gone studying ecology to becoming an independent Art & Science researcher. At 2014, I founded the Science Art Group 18 apples as a collaboration between an artist, a molecular biologist and an IT specialist. Our artistic works have been shown at exhibitions and festivals at leading Russian and international venues of Modern Art, such as Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Garage, Polytechnic Museum, 4th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ars Electronica (Austria, 2017).
In addition, we works with our colleagues from Lomonosov Moscow State University on an Open Source Projects for Science.
I will bring some of the devices to show and I hope that I`ll take part at GOSH Public Event @ X-Factory with our project “MetabolA.I.” shown at Ars Electronica last year.
At the GOSH our group are interested in non-invasive medical/bio data sensors, CNC platforms for bio-printing and in using bioengineering methods for a biohacking.
