Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen’s work is occupied with broad meanings of material and production. They work across objects, installation, video and photography that explore processes of production as cultural, ethical and political practices. Their practice experiments with the use of design as an medium, reconfiguring processes, systems and organisms in order to question the context in which they operate. Revital Cohen is an artist and designer who develops critical objects and provocative scenarios exploring the juxtaposition of the natural with the artificial. Her work spans across various mediums and includes collaborations with scientists, bioethicists, animal breeders and physicians. Since establishing her studio in 2008, she has been exhibiting and lecturing internationally within varied contexts and locations - from scientific and academic conferences to art galleries and design fairs. She is the winner of the Science Museum’s Emerging Artist Commission, 2012.
