This lecture examines the digital photography, new media and bio art of Argentine artists Andrea Juan, Joaquín Fargas and Grupo Proyecto Biopus produced since 2000. It focuses on how these artists respond to global environmental problems, exploring their emphasis on the potential of discovery (articulated through processes of research and travel), creative adaptations and invention in their work.Their art encourages the viewer to access their responsibility as a member of a global system, while finding a sense of pleasure in the unknown.
