A magnetic resonance scan of the artists' brain has been 3-dimensionally printed and its surface covered with transgenic, bioluminescent moss, developed with a technique similar to biomarkers that are routinely used in science. Presenting us with a plant that emits light, Jun Takita comments on the possibilities of manipulating and transforming the innate characteristics of living beings through new tools and methods in the sciences. Takita presents the transgenic as an achievement of the human brain that allows for the creation of plants with the ability to emit light in a way that only certain animal species could traditionally do.
With a background in sculpture backed with research in plant sciences, the artworks of Jun Takita manifest his interest in the natural dependency on light of living beings and the role it plays in the cycle of life.
