Adam Zaretsky Ph.D. is a Wet-Lab Art Practitioner mixing Ecology, Biotechnology, Non-human Relations, Body Performance and Gastronomy. Zaretsky stages lively, hands-on bioart production labs based on topics such as: foreign species invasion (pure/impure), radical food science (edible/inedible), jazz bioinformatics (code/flesh), tissue culture (undead/semi-alive), transgenic design issues (traits/desires), interactive ethology (person/machine/non-human) and physiology (performance/stress).

ImmerSea: Subversive Submersibles is water-adapted augmented reality (AR). This may include aquatic AR goggles, immersive AR environments and AR submergibles. ImmerSea: Subversive Submersibles are installation experimentations creative real time and re-mashed audio visual overlays for experience alteration and tabulation of reactions. Centered around a pop-up sustainable miniature golf course made for recording biodiversity, we plan to transmit live mixed Video Jockey footage to our submerged AR human subjects in the Andaman Sea. Miniature golf is great low impact fun especially if it is sourced from local and sustainable materials. The Sustainable Miniature Golf Course is an interface to teach-in about biodiversity, human gene editing and bioethics. It is also a chill-out node to refuel, talk about theory and practice, hatch bioart ideas and underwater AR-VJ immersive transmission station. With enough funding we plan to use zorb balls and biosensors which may lead us into immersive use of sounds and tactility drawn in real time from the biodiverse environment.
