Darya Warner

Born: Germany

Darya Warner is a German interactive bio-artist; coming to US in 2001, Darya was determined to pursue her dream of being an artist. Darya’s work revolves around the complexity of nature and global environmental consciousness, in which living organisms are the major part of her ideas. Through bio-processing and collaboration with living matter such as mycelium, bioluminescent algae, glowing E.Coli, etc, combined with usage of modern technologies like CNC machines, Darya creates interactive installations, visual displays, and sculptures to engage the viewer into becoming more aware of the world around them and push to rethink their place as a ‘sapiens’ part of Earth’s Superorganism. As a part of her art practices, Darya uses microscopes with the primary idea of merging scales; colliding the visible and invisible worlds at the point of human perception which brings her closer to the understanding of the interconnections between them.
