My Cells is a multimedia project involving a self-produced pop song, music video and art science collaboration with the assistance of bio-artist Svenja Kratz.
During the production of the song My Cells, artist Svenja Kratz supervised the extraction of skin cells for propagation and documentation. Blood samples were also taken and documented and layered into the footage of the My Cells music video, filmed at The Edge.
