Špela Petrič (1980), B.Sc., PhD was a post graduate student of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Faculty of Medicine, Ljubljana, working with steroid transforming fungal enzymes. With a background in theater, her focus has shifted to performance and new media art, specifically bioart. The established yet controversial position of the scientist in society inspired her to produce work which uses (bio)technology for expressive playfulness, thus imposing an alternate perception of scientific methodology.

Projects and collaborations: Cladocera: An evening of poetry (Galerija Kapelica, 2009), Kip (collaboration with Zoran Janežič-Srđič, 2009), Avtobiografija-diskografija (performance, author Samo Gosarič, 2008), Sem, kot da me ni (theater performance, author Daša Lakner, 2007), LabSUs (video essay, 2007), Portrait of Matjaž Stražar (short documentary, 2007), Tlačenke in narastki (book of poetry, 2005)
