‘The future we want, naturally’ by Matthew Gale is the first of four solo shows as part of BLENDER: soupptV Artist Residency traveling to The Asylum Gallery in Wolverhampton.

The exhibition examines a range of scenarios where biotechnology, in a possible future, aims to provide solutions to some of the issues we tackle today. The work explores the human impulse to alter and control our environments, the unexpected results of our efforts and how we accommodate these outcomes. As mechanical technology has altered our lives, biological technology will inevitably require cultural, political and ethical changes. By solving the problems we have created, we are likely to create unfamiliar dilemmas. My practice explores the changing nature of the relationships we have with our bodies, other organisms and the environment; aligning art and science through a shared purpose of describing human experience.
