Agatha Haines is working as artist-in-residence at Waag's Open Wetlab this year, as part of the 3Package Deal program of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. Agi's residency within '3Package Deal' is shared with Mediamatic and Professor Toby Kiers' department of animal ecology at the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences at Free University Amsterdam.
Agatha Haines' (England, 1989) work is focused on the design of the human body. How might people respond to the possibilities of our body as another everyday material and how far can we push our malleable bod- ies while still being accepted by society?
Haines was a winner of the Bio Art & Design award ('Drones with desires'). She also exhibited at the exhibition Designing Health in 2013, curated by Waag.
