Together, art and science, being two complementing forms of knowledge, are able to explain the vicissitudes of nature. This artistic/scientific project wants to explore areas that purely scientific research can or may not explore. It is based on the fact that fertility and immunity, unique to every species, are the necessary ingredients for increasing diversity through crossbreeding. Scientific research on my crossbred chickens has led to the institution of a unique database. This is why I’m expanding the experiment to the creation of specific ecosystems, providing an opportunity for interplay between various organisms – chickens, mushrooms and dromedaries. If the results prove to be interesting, scientific research can take over.
Every organism is looking for other organisms to
survive, the same applies to man and chicken.
