Living Capsules is the umbrella name we give to our art pieces that are being born out of an ongoing collaboration, between an artist and a sociologist, who share interests in the relations between senses, bodies, and technologies. This reflective paper tells the story of their co-creation. We introduce the notion of biohybrid systems as our sociotechnical inspiration. Second, we mark out the conceptual space in which we began to prototype Living Capsules. Third, we reflect on how and why we blend our disciplinary practices. And finally, we share and discuss some prototype pieces, sketching future directions for our continued collaboration.
