EpiMimesis, Epizone V: Shifting Identities

EpiMimesis is an artistic team project referring to the perpetual human ambition to gain knowledge over ‘Big Data’ for tailoring a better future. Epimimesis evokes the notion of mimesis as a creative method of combining art, science, and technology for striving to create a new quality or orientation of mind, for stimulating imagination and reflection. Combining interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and expertise with creative visions, the artistic strategy of mimesis is used for the search of the personal human identity within the ever-changing data environment powered by merging biotech and digi-tech revolutions.
