  • Product description

    Seeds of Life the Bone Art of Bruce Mahalski is a new book by scientist and artist, Craig Hilton. It realises the symbiotic potential of artscience collaborations with an unrelenting intensity. Both Mahalski and Hilton are interested in the ethical and philosophical implications of using biological material (living and non-living) in art to critique what they see as outdated and species-dangerous social norms. The ethics of collecting biological material and making art with it are also discussed. The books title refers to the Ancient Aztecs belief that their gods used human bones as seeds to grow new ones and Mahalski's firmly held opinion that bones are not symbols of death but beautiful and enduring reminders of life. This sixty-four page book is illustrated by photos of Mahalski's work by many noted NZ photographers including Michael Hall, James Gilberd and Andrew Ross.
