Call of the Silent Cell by artist duo
'Call of the Silent Cell' by artist duo @boredomresearch explores links between our human and environmental health by taking viewers on a journey through a forest with an old man who encounters a storm not of air but of cells and their signals.
In Oxford, we worked with artist duo boredomresearch to deliver workshops for students at Activate Learning's City of Oxford College and EMBS Sixth Form College using bespoke software that simulates a gamified version of an immune response known as a cytokine storm.
Building on this concept we then worked with boredomresearch to produce Call of the Silent Cell, an experimental short film of cellular behaviour exploring the interplay between the gut microbiome, the immune system and wider concerns of human and environmental health.

'Call of the Silent Cell' was on display in the #WindowGalleries from 28th October 2021 to the 30th November 2021.
