Mary Maggic

18 September 2019

Mary Maggic is an artist working at the intersection of biotechnology, cultural discourse, and civil disobedience. Her investigations challenge the role of creator and creation, the ethics of the postnatural product, and the neoliberal promises of science and technology. Maggic's most recent project generates DIY protocols for hacking estrogen, demonstrating its biopolitical ubiquity and potential for mutagenesis, i.e. gender-hacking. Maggic has participated in a number of interdisciplinary residencies including HackteriaLab2014 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Ars Bioarctica Residency in Finland, and Interactivos?'16: Possible Worlds in Madrid and has exhibited for Ars Electronica and Transmediale. They hold a BSA in Biological Sciences and Art from Carnegie Mellon University and a MS in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT Media Lab.
