The latest bio art “Dragon Meat” by LOM BABY debuts at The National Art Center, Tokyo.

A Venture to Bring the Mythical Creature “Dragon” to Life through DNA Synthesis

August 2024
An exceedingly anticipated event will be held at The National Art Center, Tokyo.

The moment when “Dragon Meat” is brought to life in this world.

First, who is LOM BABY?
LOM BABY is a creative collective consisting of artists, engineers, and scholars, all focusing on the theme of “the birth of life” and developing artificial life forms.

Starting with a presentation at the World Trade Center in New York,

we successfully held a solo exhibition at LIQUIDROOM in Shibuya, Tokyo,

and attracted approximately 4,500 visitors over two days at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Our large-scale solo exhibition [LOM BABY_PLUS ULTRA], held at GINZA 456 (one of the most prestigious locations in Tokyo), saw all exhibited works sold out,

 setting the highest number of visitors and the highest transaction value in the marketplace’s history.

Their works have received acclaim not only from domestic but also international collectors, with pieces spread across the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and Mexico.

The Latest Bioart “Dragon Meat”
An attempt to bring the mythical creature “dragon” to life through DNA synthesis.
By synthesizing the DNA of animals and bacteria that make up the dragon based on various traditions, we create “Dragon DNA” and exhibit “Dragon Meat” generated from that DNA.

A work to explore the theme “Can we love data?”—a main subject of LOM BABY.

Additionally, four digital bioartists and biologists will gather to present works such as “Human Thread,” “Cell Ring,” “Electric Mouse,” and “Glowing Clothes.”
