Genetic Moo


Art group Genetic Moo create playful interactive art using open source software and a range of low-tech sensors, including webcams, microphones and Kinect. Their work draws widely from science, particularly in the areas of evolution, mutation and artificial life.

Since 2008, they have been building a digital bestiary based on ‘imagined future evolutions’, where human development is driven by sensual rather than cerebral influences. Their creatures reconfigure the human body into fantastical forms and are programmed to respond in a variety of life-like ways to audience motion, sound and touch.

Genetic Moo have exhibited extensively around the UK and abroad. They won a John Lansdown Award, the Lumen Prize Founder’s Prize and the 2016 Kent Creative Audio Visual Award.
