Title: Planning and Randomness: Consideration of Bio-media Works

In this study, I focus on the uniqueness of expression in bio-media works generated by the distance between “planning the elements” and “straying from the plan”. Some of the bioart/design works include designing the environment to live for living elements (bio-media) such as an animal, insect, fungus or tissue culture, as a part of the work. As a starting point for my research, this presentation will examine the nature of “plan” as a basis for (the possibility of) temporal and spatial expansion in bioart/design, considering Germ Painting from the beginning of the 20th century, Jakob von Uexküll’s theory of the “Umwelt”, and the methods of contemporary artists/designers.
