Artificial feather
Artificial feather is a decellularized leaf of a plant as a prototype of an artificial feather, into the center (rachis) of which a vitamin complex will be introduced. This feather can be implanted into the body of sick birds, which, as a result of the disease, lose their plumage, and, accordingly, the ability to fly. The project raises the issue of animal disability and suffering. An artificial feather can be presented in a petri dish. For structure comparison, a real parrot feather can be placed next to it.

Theoretical basis: Annmarie Mol, Sunaura Taylor, Revital Cohen, Ritchie P.A.

Symbiodevice shows how birds help plants to exist through interaction, collecting data from both species. This is a prototype device of the future that collects information from two species and analyzes their interaction.

The idea behind this design was the symbiotic theory that species evolve through cooperation rather than struggle. As part of the project, the device will collect information from a plant (ficus) and a parrot (cockatiel). The device is white, resembles a stone with holes through which you can see the technical filling (Arduino and sensors).

Theoretical basis: Jacob Von Uexkull, Donna Haraway, Lynn Margulis, Lois Gregoire, Jennifer Ackerman.

Zine "Unanswers"
Open-call by 2nd Curatorial forum, Saint Petersburg
Curators: Alina Belishkina and Natalia Khvoenkova

The exhibition "Unanswered" in the format of a printed edition as zine was performed by fifteen students of six partner universities of the 2nd Curatorial Forum.

In the zine, students try to figure out how our ideas about education are formed; what changes do we want, based on the acute problems existing today. Reflecting on the curriculum and what it can be in theory and practice, the authors of the exhibition asked questions: What do I know? What do I want to know? What do I want to learn? What I need? What am I dreaming about? What makes me happy? It was they who led to the non-responses on the pages of the zine. They cover three topics:
- Why is it necessary THIS?
- What is a university?
- Purpose or process?
Zin-exhibition "Neo-Answers" is an attempt to analyze one's own student experience and deconstruct the idea of ​​what an educational institution is.
What should I do (perfomance)
Potential project for "Love, Death & Robots" / "Black Mirror" series. The story about a man (Jason) who was implanted with artificial voice intelligence (Anne).

Project by: Sofia Osbanova, Julia Ginger, Pauline Belokrenitskaya
Cockatiel singing generated by a neural network
It serves as a biotechnological audio background of the ecosystem. The project offers an alternative scenario of a symbiotic future where technologies and nature intertwine.

Theoretical basis: Noam Chomsky
