NY based artist Brandon Ballengee works across media, including print media, biological staining and preservation techniques, installation, and performance to explore the interconnection between environmental ecology, selective predation and biodiversity, particular that of amphibians. Brandon engages in scientific practices, conducting both field and laboratory research to generate art exhibitions in public galleries. To better understand his practice and the concerns such art raises, it is necessary to have a rudimentary understanding of the science he is engaging in. Dr. Dylan Fraser, from the Department of Biology at Concordia joins Brandon in conversation to reflect further on the overlapping issues that arise between bio art and biology today. Dylan’s research is focused on biodiversity and fish.
