Veronika Sellner, resident research fellow at FeLT, OsloMet in the spring term.
Veronika is a PhD candidate in the Digital Culture and Creative Industries programme
at Faculty of Arts MUNI. She has background in art and media theory and in her research she
focuses on the intersection of artistic practice, synthetic biology and ecology from the
theoretical perspectives of flat ontology, critical posthumanism, postantropocentrism,
feminism and current critiques of neoliberalism.

Abstract of Veronika’s research:
On the intersection of art, science and technology, the ongoing PhD project explores artistic
interventions in the field of synthetic biology or synthetic ecology. It draws on thinking about
the categories of technology and nature and their interconnection such as posthumanism, as
well as approaches to the redefinition of humanity and the status of non-human actors,
including flat ontology. Two of the main answers this research is aiming to provide are on (1)
working with and for the non-human actors, (2) how to better describe the “horizontal”
relations between human and non-human actors.
In other words: I will lay down the theoretical foundation and the process (methods and
tools) of this research project. By outlining its dominant concepts as well as introducing the
work in progress, I hope to start a multilogue with you: fill and/or create gaps in the research
itself
