studioHydrostatic

a collaborative bioart project lab in Brooklyn, NYC, founded by Sarah Max Beck and partner, Robert C. Beck*.

Taking a creative approach to research that blurs the lines between conceptual art, mad-scientist project and citizen science, studioHydrostatic uses hand-blown glass, digital technology, biological and recycled material to build installations, unique tools and standalone sculptural objects tailored to the mission of ecological problem solving (carbon sequestration, biodiversity encouragement, food production, and ecosystems stabilization, etc.) in site-specific environments.
