Genetic Moo

Genetic Moo build living installations in pixels and light. In dark spaces you can interact with their fantastical creatures or immerse yourself in their digital ecosystems. Their work draws widely from popular science, particularly in the areas of ecology, symbiosis, morphology, mutation and artificial life. They are currently working on a series of Microworlds.

They have shown extensively in the UK and abroad, including The Science Centre, Singapore; LABoral, Gijon; Watermans, London; ICC Open Sky Gallery, Hong Kong; Dreamland, Margate; D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum, Dundee; Glastonbury; The Wellcome Collection; The Old Vic Tunnels and GEEK.

Genetic Moo is a collaboration between Nicola Schauerman and Tim Pickup. They are based in Margate but work all over the UK and abroad with digital arts organisations.  They are members of the arts collective The London Group.
